Notice from Tiger Booster Club:
We've recently learned of an email and phone scam from Sports Media Advertising, Alec Ross (Ft. Worth, Texas) selling advertising packages to our community. The Booster Club and the CF District  does not use  a for-profit vendor to secure sponsorships. The Booster Club is an Iowa 501c3 non-profit entity with your donation going to support our CF student-athletes. Our CF Booster Club membership drive will begin in May.
