During halftime of the October 6th Mustangs football game, the Menomonie Athletic Booster Club (MABC) donated $15,000 to the Menomonie High School Athletic Department. This is the first of two donations made during the school year.
The club holds several fundraisers every year, including a golf tournament, cribbage tournament, An Evening with the Coaches gala, and alumni basketball and volleyball tournaments. In addition, the club provides volunteers at home football games and earns money through concessions, blue seat sales, and 50/50 raffles.
The mission of the booster club is to promote MHS athletics, help provide needed resources for every team, and support ALL of our student-athletes and coaches. The MABC is made up of parents/guardians of MHS athletes, coaches, the Activities Director, and community supporters of MHS athletics. Money raised by the booster club is split between all MHS sports teams.
Each year, the booster club awards scholarships to two graduating seniors. The selection criteria may best sum up what being a true athlete is - sportsmanship, team spirit, perseverance, and integrity in sports and other school activities, NOT ability or varsity participation.
Since its inception, the booster club has donated over $700,000 to MHS athletics.
Becoming a member is easy; just complete a membership form, which can be found online at the booster club’s website. The booster club and MHS athletics appreciate donations of any amount.

The club meets on the second Wednesday of the month - August through May - at the Stout Craft Co. at 6pm. All members are welcome to attend.
