Proceeds from the day’s events go directly to the Highlander Booster Club, which is a volunteer group of parents and community members, working together to enhance the athletic experience for ALL Governor Livingston Highlander athletes and athletic teams.  The Booster Club is funded by member dues, donations, and various fundraisers, like the sale of GL Merchandise and the Super Saturday 50/25/15/10 raffle.   All funds raised are channeled directly back to GL athletes and athletic programs through team grants, scholarships, and awards.  If you are interested in becoming a member or need more information, please contact Linda Nessenson at LNessenson@comcast.net.
