Maquoketa Athletic Boosters Basketball Tournament Fundraiser

Girls: November 4th

Boys: November 11th & 12th

The Maquoketa Athletic Boosters need your help. The money raised during these two tournaments will purchase uniforms and other necessary equipment for all athletic programs in grades 7-12. In addition to volunteering to work a shift at these tournaments, we are requesting donations from every member of each athletic team in High School & Middle School. We will be hosting approximately 90 teams during these 3 days and your donations will be key to their success.

Middle School Athletes: Please donate 1-8 pack of 20 oz Gatorade or PowerAde (Blue or Red preferred) per sport that you participate in. Please drop these donations off in the Middle School office before October 30th.

Volunteers: We will need many concession stand workers, court helpers, and admission helpers to make these tournaments a success. If you and your athlete are available on Nov 4th, 11th or 12th for a 2 hour shift please contact Colleen Schwenker at Your help will be much appreciated!!

We thank you for your support!
