BOOST 2020 – Seat reservations now available

The third annual BOOST Bash is scheduled for Saturday, March 28, at the Wild Rose Casino, and seat reservations are now available. BOOST stands for Bringing Optimism & Opportunities to Students & Teachers, and all proceeds from this event will directly impact students and teachers in the Greene County Community School District. The event includes a social, dinner, live and silent auctions, and recognition of the great things happening at GCCSD.

Last year’s event had more than 300 community members in attendance and a fundraising total that exceeded $67,000, bringing the two-year total to more than $120,000.

This ongoing support from the community has created new opportunities for Greene County students and teachers. Examples of the dozens of funded projects include numerous field trips, musical instruments, virtual business simulations, equipment for nursing training, and supplemental reading materials. A full list is available on the BOOST website.

The BOOST committee is planning  an even bigger third event. Seats are limited, and the event has sold out in its first two years. “Reserve your seat today,” a BOOST Bash organizer said.

Seat reservations are $30 per person. Reservations can be made online at or by picking up a reservation form at Home State Bank, Peoples Bank, or the Greene County Community Center. Persons can also directly mail a check to Greene County Schools BOOST / P.O. Box 4 / Jefferson, Iowa 50129. Checks can be made out to Greene County Educational Foundation. Please put BOOST in the memo line so the donations is identified appropriately.

There are ways to BOOST support for Greene County schools beyond attending. The committee is always looking for new and unique auction ideas and for additional community sponsors. More information is available on the BOOST website or from BOOST committee members.

“Stay in touch with us. Check out our website and like us on our Facebook BOOST – Greene County, IA page to keep updated as the event gets closer,” the spokesperson said.
