Farwell youth wrestlers to host major tournament
Members of the Farwell Youth Wrestling Club are hard at work, preparing for the 2014 wrestling season. This year’s season will include many tournaments for the wrestlers along with the honor of hosting the North Eastern Michigan Wrestling Association’s Regional Tournament, set for February 15, 2014 at the Farwell High School.
Members began raising money to cover the expenses of the tournament this past summer, holding a car wash, sitting in the dunk tank during the Lumberjack Festival, selling FunPasta and holding a bake sale at Jay’s. Sponsorship letters have been sent to area businesses seeking financial assistance. Bronze Sponsorship is $25, Silver Sponsorship is $50 and Gold Sponsorship is $100.
Sponsors will be recognized at the tournament, on the club’s Facebook page and in future press releases. Farwell Family Dentistry was the first business to step up with sponsorship.
The tournament will bring wrestlers from across the northeastern part of Michigan. Wrestlers will range in age from 5 – 15 years.
Estimated cost to sponsor this tournament is $5,000. They FYWC will also be hosting a tournament on Feb. 1 where it hopes the admission fees, gate and concessions will assist in raising money for the Regional Tournament. Businesses or individual wishing to become sponsors may send their donations to Brenda Spivey, Club Secretary at 11345 N. Vandecar, Farwell, MI 48622.
