Go Fund Me: Italy Spirit Flags


A few of us Gladiator Boosters would like to solicit donations to purchase spirit flags to run out onto the field with the players at the beginning of games, at halftime, and after touchdowns! I have gotten a quote from a reputable flag company and it looks like we will need roughly $1000.00 to purchase 3 -5′ × 7′ Flags ( I H S). Other options are available as well. Any and all help will be vastly appreciated. Donations can be made in person and checks can be made payable to The Gladiator Athletic Booster Club
