It is that time of year again for all of the annual sports fundraising. The Coppell golf team is hosting it annual Mexican dinner and silent auction on Oct. 26 from 5-7 p.m. in the Coppell High School commons before the football game against Flower Mound Marcus.

Many of the Coppell golf team members are getting ready for their annual event by selling raffle tickets and dinner tickets. Much work goes into this event for the team, including putting up decorations and preparing auction prizes to be sold to the people who attend.

Not only is this event a good experience for the friends and family members who attend, but as well for the players. The members of the team see this as a time not only to prepare for their annual fundraiser but also bond together through activities such as decorating for the dinner.

“It was just little stuff that we are doing to prepare for this dinner,” sophomore golfer Sol Lee said. “Our team decorated chip bags and made center pieces for the tables; it was a lot of fun and felt like a good bonding experience.”

All JV and varsity teams are raising funds to play in more out of town tournaments. The money from the auction will go to benefit the teams and help pay for their tournaments and other things such as hotel rooms.
