Cincinnati Reds
-Kid Glove Fundraiser

The CCS Cougar family hit a home run last year with our inaugural Reds Kid Glove Fundraiser. Students last year sold almost 200 baseball tickets to raise $1,800 which went directly toward the purchase of much-needed athletic equipment and field supplies. As you know, with the spring sports season soon upon us, CCS will need all the "Field Dry" we can afford to buy.

What's amazing about this fundraiser is the return to CCS. For every $12 Reds ticket sold, CCS keeps $10. Few fundraisers reward CCS like this one. Every dollar we raise frees CCS resources to support other activities...including one that's important to you. Since most of us will consider attending at least one Reds baseball game, why not consider the dates below and support CCS Athletics?
  1. Tuesday, May 22 -  Reds vs. Pirates
  2. Wednesday, May 23 -  Reds vs. Pirates
  3. Tuesday, June 5 -  Reds vs. Rockies
  4. Wednesday, June 6 -  Reds vs. Rockies
  5. Tuesday, June 19 -  Reds vs. Tigers
To reserve your tickets, please contact the Athletic Office to place your order. Let them know which date and the number of tickets you want to order. Checks should be written to "CCS Athletics" with "Reds Kid Glove" in the memo.  
Please contact Marc Ferguson ( or Julie Reutener ( if you have any questions.
