THE EVENT

Estero High School now has an Alumni Association to support “extras” for the school, and the kick-off fundraising event has been planned for June 9 at The Boardwalk, a new, beachfront restaurant on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University.

The Wildcat Caribbean Kick-Off will include great food, drinks and music provided by The Jammin G’s reggae band. The evening’s menu features prime rib, jerk chicken kebobs, fried plantains, roasted root veggies and more. Desserts include Miss Mae’s Bakehouse Coconut Cupcakes and Yogurt Mountain frozen yogurt.

Estero High School opened in 1987 and recently concluded its 30th school year. While the Alumni Association board consists mostly of parents of Estero High students and alumni, some of the kick-off event’s sponsors are alumni themselves, including Bahia Bowls owner Ben Casey and Realtor Jason Pavich and his wife, Jami (Class of 1998).

“We started the Alumni Association this past year in an effort to raise money for Estero High School and bring together the community, alumni, business members, students and staff,” explains Co-Vice President Lisa McKee. “The event is open to anyone in the community wanting to support Estero High School.”

To register for the Wildcat Caribbean Kick-off or to explore other Alumni Association support options, visit www.esterohighalumni.net.

THE CAUSE

The Alumni Association is hoping to support three specific needs for the high school: a first-ever visitor’s concession stand at the stadium, new track and field equipment, and teacher appreciation initiatives. The new track and field equipment is to complement resurfacing of the track at Estero High School, making it a state-of-the-art facility for hosting state-level meets, McKee noted.

Platinum Sponsors ($1,500): Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, Pestmax, Rich Mathews/State Farm, Jack Mancini Realty, Appliance Doctor and Bahia Bowls
