The entire community is invited to the 5th Annual Pirate Pig Roast – featuring the HHS Staff Band – on Friday, Nov. 16 at the Burien Eagles Hall.

Tickets are on sale now at piratepigroast.net.

“We need our village to rally,” said Highline High School Booster Club President Alana Joyal.

The dinner and music event is the club’s main fundraiser to restock the booster club’s piggy bank to benefit students. Get ready for a good time with a band led by Athletic Director Lori Box and other HHS staff as featured performers.

“Our students are depending on you, and it will be a fun Friday night! Why WOULDN’T you want to come?” asks Jill Mudge, co-chair for procurements and decorations. “Besides you might land the generous donation of a Sunday matinee for 40 at the Tin Theater! Or $100 to spend at White Center Glass. Bring on the donations, Burien. And we need YOU, so organize your friends and HHS alumni to buy tickets.”

Other donations include an overflowing Seahawks basket with game tickets, and the Golden Ticket–a getaway to the Alderbrook Resort & Spa including a $300 gift card to use while you are there!

Without a PTA, the booster club is the fundraising arm for the high school, with line item budgets for student sports, clubs and activities. You can help the boosters provide scholarships for students to participate, grants to sports and clubs for equipment and uniforms, and to pursue the dream of cutting the cost of ASB cards so more kids can easily participate.

Sports, clubs and extracurricular activities in high schools keep kids healthy, engaged in school, and part of a positive social network.

Students were asked how important sports and activities are. HHS senior Sabrina Beth is a member of drill team, cross country and track, and said:

“I like being a Highline athlete because of the family bonding experience it provides.”

Caitlin Shira, another senior, plays volleyball and tennis, and added:

“Highline athletics is a second home for me.”
