The fall has been a busy season for the Novi Athletic Boosters. Club volunteers barely took a collective breath after hosting the NAB’s premier fund-raiser and annual outdoor party, Tastefest, on Sept. 21, before rolling up their sleeves and pulling together a second fall fund-raiser, the inaugural Wine Tasting Event on Nov. 3.
“Both of these events required dedication and effort on the part of our amazing volunteers, but both were great events and successful fund-raisers, ” said NAB President Ray Notarantonio, who noted that proceeds from the Wine Tasting Event were directed to the Weight Room Fund. “These events have helped us raise funds that will allow us to continue supporting our Novi athletic teams with the equipment, uniforms and training that they need to be successful. After all, everything we do is to benefit our student athletes.”
Of course, none of these successes would have been possible without the Novi fans, who braved the cold and rain to sample the wares of Tastefest vendors, put on their Sunday best to sample wines and appetizers and opened their wallets wide for silent auctions during both events, all to support a great cause.
“Thank you to all of those who attended either, or both, of the events. We appreciate your support,” Notarantonio said. “We also encourage parents and other adult fans of Novi Athletics to become more involved in the Boosters. New voices are always welcome.”
