President’s Message

September 2016

Hello Demon Fans:

PresidentPicGreat things are happening for Demon Athletics and Westlake Demons Athletic Boosters (WDAB) is proud to be a part of it!  WDAB is a community-based organization established with an ALL ATHLETICS/ONE GOAL approach of supporting Westlake City School athletic teams in grades 7-12.  WDAB strives to provide equipment, uniforms, scoreboards, athletic structures, etc. – via the fundraising efforts of its members, parents, the greater Westlake community, and local businesses.

While WDAB is a separate entity from Westlake City Schools and its athletic departments, it supports the activities and needs of our interscholastic athletes and athletic programs.  WDAB is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization and strictly run by a group of dedicated volunteers.  It is through the WDAB volunteers and membership that we have been able to significantly increase our fundraising and support our athletic teams.

As you may know, last year WDAB was able to meet the challenge of an anonymous donor to raise $40,000 in order to complete an entire Weight Room upgrade.  This was in addition to the over $73,000 WDAB provided to fall, winter, and spring teams to purchase new uniforms, equipment, and indoor practice time.  This year WDAB is similarly on track to provide nearly $55,000 to our teams.  We have been fortunate to be able to say “YES” to the budget requests of the Athletic Director and team coaches.

WDAB wants to keep the momentum going so we can accomplish additional capital improvements to our sports facilities.  It is because of the generosity of DEMON FANS that we are successfully meeting our goals!  If you are a member, THANK YOU for your participation.  If not, please join this great group of WESTLAKE DEMONS ATHLETIC BOOSTERS.

GO DEMONS!
