For 53 years, the Linden Athletic Boosters Club has provided over two-million dollars of financial support for all types of athletic endeavors throughout the Linden community. In this past year alone, the Linden Athletic Boosters Club has donated approximately $50,000 towards; purchasing uniforms and equipment for sports at Linden High School; making significant improvements to the sports facilities where our student/athletes compete; LHS Athletic Transportation fees; facility fees for LHS golf & tennis; Freshman Sports; scholarships for our graduating student athletes; and awards for LHS athletes/teams. We also help when needed and donate to support Linden youth/middle school sports and the LUSD PE programs. The Linden Athletic Hall of Fame was started in 2006, and the Boosters Club helps to sponsor the event, which now takes place bi-annually. We also help make monetary donations toward non-athletic endeavors in Linden Community such as Linden Jr. Miss, The Linden High School Band, the LUSD Middle School Band, ACE Show Choir and the Linden High School Associated Student Body.
The Linden Athletic Boosters Club is able to make these types of contributions by staging six major fundraisers during the school year. These fundraisers include a Kick-Off Dinner & Dance in August, Giants Bus Trip in September, a Polenta & Chicken Dinner in November, a Barodi & Ribs Dinner in January, a Golf Tournament in April and a Reverse Raffle in June. These fundraisers, along with revenues generated from membership dues, ads and sales of our Fall Sports Program & Sports Posters, the concession stand during home football games, and our TEAM Store allows us to provide the needed support to Linden Community Sports.
