WAXAHACHIE — The Quarterback Club, the official football booster club for Waxahachie High School, kicked off its offseason push toward the 2017 high school football season, announcing its Mattress Fundraiser on Friday via Twitter.
It will the booster club's inaugural Waxahachie Indian Football Matress Fundraiser and the first collaboration with Custom Fundraising Solutions of North Texas.
Twin, full, queen and king and California king-sized beds will be sold at up to 50 percent off the retail price with portions of the proceeds going to purchases of equipment and needs of support for the football team. According to QBC unit secretary Tina Hunt, it's not a straight percentage of sales but is based on the number of mattresses sold.
The football team will be awarded a specific amount depending on how many are sold. CFS has helped in Cedar Hill, Denton Guyer, Frisco Reedy, Godley, Hebron, Lake Highlands, Plano Senior, Richardson and Van Alstyne High School mattress fundraisers of band, basketball, football and volleyball programs throughout the last two years.
In 2014, during a Wylie East High School Mattress Palooza, CFS and the WEHS Raider booster club raised $8,750 for the football program. On March 10, Hebron raised $9,975 for its band.
Brand new mattress' — Beautyrest, Comfortaire, Simmons, Southerland and other manufacturers — will be available from $199 to $399 as well as firm, pillowtop, orthopedic and latex and gel Memory Foam sets and luxury pillows and mattress protectors.
Layaway and delivery are available and cash, check and credit cards are accepted.
