Skipjacks contribute to Gulf Coast relief

Posted on Thursday, September 22, 2005


WYE MILLS, September 21 – Chesapeake College´s Athletic Department will be contributing $400 to the college´s Gulf Coast Disaster Relief fund.

That contribution was the amount of money raised via sales at the college´s concession stand during last Saturday´s baseball quadruple-header and a Wednesday afternoon cookout, augmented by donations. Assistant softball coach Bill Faust, former softball player Katie Satterlee, and the members of the softball team ran the concession stand Saturday while the Skipjacks split doubleheaders with Mt. Airy American Legion and Community College Baltimore County-Essex.

"Bill Faust and Katie Satterlee were there all day, 10 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., and nearly everyone from the softball team helped out at various times during the day," said Athletic Director Frank Szymanski. "They all understand that these people need our help. We received contributions from a lot of people."

Faust, Chesapeake College maintenance worker Dave Boone and Skipjack athletes ran Wednesday´s lunch-time cookout.

The Athletic Department contribution will be part of Chesapeake College´s disaster relief check for the American Red Cross. The college is currently completing a two-week (September 9-23) internal giving campaign that is soliciting contributions from all Chesapeake College employees, the Board of Trustees, and Chesapeake´s students.

Other student donations were collected as part of the college´s previously scheduled Student Organization Recruitment Week (September 12-16).

Community members are also able to contribute to the fund through Chesapeake College´s Office of Resource Development. Checks should be made payable to Chesapeake College, with the notation "Gulf Coast Disaster Relief," and mailed to: Chesapeake College, c/o Lauren Halterman, P.O. Box 8, Wye Mills, MD 21679.

Donations are tax-deductible.
