From a Coaches Perspective: Todd Reed

According to coach Todd Reed of the Shawnee Mission West baseball team, 

“You know the best part of the fundraising experience with Fundraising University, in my opinion, is the actual Blitz night itself. Here at Shawnee Mission West we send every one of our players out in the Varsity uniform and for three hours they go out to the community to represent our program and sell the card. And then they come back at the end. And to see their faces, to see that they reached their goal, and [you know] earn their prizes or get the prizes they earned is just really neat as a head coach to see [you know] that the hard work is paid off. You know our fundraiser went exceptionally well [you know] selling the Fundraising U ticket over the last ten years. On average we sell anywhere, [you know] make anywhere between thirteen to sixteen thousand dollars. Which really affords us the opportunity to put my players in the best equipment out there and the best uniforms. And it really transfers over to [you know] what we accomplish on the field. To sell [you know] the big thing for us, would be the checkpoints. Making sure that they hit a certain number on that first checkpoint or their second checkpoint. Which really puts us in [you know] the position to be successful where we’ve already sold almost nine-hundred cards before we even go out on our Blitz. This year some of the things we’re going to do with our funding is we’ve already purchased twenty-five pairs of home and away pants for varsity guys. We’re adding additional banners to our outfield. And just the normal stuff that [you know] a lot of programs aren’t able to provide their players with. We’re able to go out and buy those pieces of equipment and things that help our kids run a top-notch program. They do a tremendous job going out [and] reaching those merchants, making sure we put the best product in our players hands to sell to our community in the Spring so we can be successful.”
