Thank You, Chandler Bowl Volunteers!

On behalf of the CA Athletics Parent Volunteers, Kristen Kina and Cheryl Gall, thank you all for making the CA Chandler Bowl rally a big success! Your donations of snacks and drinks were very much appreciated by parents, athletes, and fans! Thank you also for setting up and cleaning. After the games we loaded up the five buses, two vans, and one mini bus with all the leftover food and beverages. Hopefully that made for a happy trip back to school in addition to bringing home the Chandler Bowl victory! We’re so proud of all the students and grateful to the wonderfully helpful and generous parents.
