The KC cheerleaders are traveling to Daytona, Fla., for Nationals this spring. To be able to afford to participate, they are doing several different fundraisers this semester, to help them get the money they need.

One fundraiser going on is a raffle for many different prizes. The tickets are being sold for $5 for one or $20 for five.  Students can buy them from any cheerleader until halftime of the Homecoming game on Saturday.

The drawing will be held at the game and students do not have to be present to win.

The items being raffled off are:

• Custom KC Yeti Cooler

• Cajun Fish Fryer

• Two free months membership at the KC fitness center, along with three free workout sessions with Ashley Stanley

• A free front end alignment at Hank’s Wheel and Frame

• $20 gift card to Cancun Daves

Dinner for two at McAlister’s

The squad is also selling “Cheer for the Cure” T-shirts to raise funds. The pink shirts are being sold for $15 each. Orders are due by Oct. 7 and the shirts should be in Oct. 15.

A portion of the money raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the cure of breast cancer.

Cheerleaders are encouraging students and staff to wear the shirts to the pink out game on Sat. Oct. 26 vs. Tyler Junior College

To order a shirt, ask a cheerleader before Oct. 7.
