The 2014 Sequim High School gold cards have arrived and starting Aug. 20 will be available for purchase.

Gold cards are a yearly fundraising device for the high school football team that contain discounts at many local merchants.

“The cards contain some great deals and most can be used over and over, as many times as you’d like throughout the year,” Dave Ditlefsen, Sequim High athletic director, said. “The profits that these cards generate go a long way in helping to purchase uniforms and quality safety equipment, and help get kids to summer camps.”

Players are given a couple of opportunities to share in pre-sales such as Rotary’s annual Salmon Bake and the Sequim Wolf Pack Youth Football’s community physical program. The first week of football practice, the cards are distributed individually to players who compete for prizes based on the number of cards they sell.

The program culminates Saturday, Aug. 30, with “Blitz Day,” where the players don their jerseys and from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. sell cards outside local establishments and in local neighborhoods. A station also will be set up at the high school football stadium for anyone interested in buying cards.

“People look forward to these all year,” SHS head football coach Erik Wiker said. “There are some fantastic deals that the community gives us to help sell cards. We appreciate the support from these merchants who participate as well as from the community members who purchase cards.”

If you miss out getting a card from one of the football players, residual cards still may be purchased from Janet Peterson in the Sequim High School main office, 601 N. Sequim Ave., after Sept. 8.
