As you may know, the Clairemont Chieftain Cheerleaders perform at all school events including football, boys’ and girls’ basketball games, and various other sporting events. They also participate in school events and assemblies, as well as many community events around Clairemont. They compete in yearly competitions on behalf of Clairemont High School and last year the Varsity Competition Team placed 1st place at the JAMZ National Competition in Las Vegas!
Cheerleading can be very expensive and much of the cost lands on the families of these cheerleaders. The Clairemont Chieftain Cheer Squad is trying a unique and different way to fundraise for the 2013- 2014 year. Their goal is to raise the money needed to fund the cheerleaders that enhance and promote school and community spirit. On average, the cheerleaders need to raise more than $20,000 a season to pay for uniforms, insurance, coaching, and choreography.
To help raise the money needed, they have set up weekly food trucks in the parking lot of Clairemont High School, 4150 Ute Dr. Every Wednesday from 5:00pm – 7:30pm you can find them out there enjoying these four to five different gourmet food trucks. Each week the trucks are rotated, so it is never boring. 10% of all sales go directly to Clairemont Chieftain Cheer.
Come on out to Clairemont High School every Wednesday, have some dinner, and help support your local cheerleaders. Check out their Facebook Page, Clairemont Chieftain Cheer, for the weekly food truck schedule.
