The Winston-Salem Lady Warcats are gearing up for their upcoming season.  Since they are a nonprofit, raising funds for gear, travel and meals is of the utmost importance.  To assist in their efforts, team owner Andrea Maine held a Valentine Soiree at the Triad Dream Center last Saturday, Feb. 18.

Maine says since the team is traveling much more this season, visiting locations such as Florida, Alabama and Canada, additional contributions to the team are needed.  The event was open to all and the $10 entry fee all went toward helping the team.

“This is an effort to raise money to support our travel and our room and board once we get to the tournaments,” Maine said.  “We decided to do it here at this place to invite the community because this is a community event.  It’s fun and it’s classy and you get an opportunity to hang out with the Warcats and enjoy positive entertainment.”

The people in attendance seemed to enjoy the good music and finger foods.  Latisha Stuckey says she decided to attend because the event sounded interesting and she is always welcome to help out a worthy cause.

“I was very impressed with the ambiance of the event,” Stuckey said.  “Overall I had a good time and enjoyable experience.  I was happy to do my part to aid with financially supporting the effort to fund the trip to Canada for the players.  I am a firm believer that hard work pays off and female athletes are some of the hardest working individuals around.”

Maine closed by saying, “All proceeds go toward what we are doing for the organization.  These girls don’t get paid; they are doing this to get contracts to go overseas.  So any amount of money will help.”
