Andover volleyball fall gala takes to the courts Oct. 5

Andover High School’s volleyball booster club is hosting a fall gala fund-raiser at the Courtyards of Andover Friday, Oct. 5.

“Booster club fund-raising is critical to provide support for our volleyball team,” said Andover high School volleyball booster club president and fall gala volunteer Deb Mlinar.

“Specifically, we provide equipment and uniforms, we support team events and we provide funding for four scholarships for our graduating seniors,” Mlinar said, describing the ways in which fund-raising money supports the Andover Husky volleyball team.

The fall gala takes place 7 to 10 p.m. and includes wine and beer tasting, appetizers and desserts, a raffle, and live and silent auctions. The raffle is sponsored by the Andover Lions Club and auction items and themed gift baskets have been donated by local businesses and community members.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

Dress code is casual and attendees wearing Andover attire will receive two free raffle tickets.

According to Mlinar, those wishing to attend the fall gala must be 21 or older.

The Courtyards of Andover is located at 13545 Martin St. N.W., Andover.
