Mustang Boosters begin membership drive

Last year, the Marble Falls Athletic Booster Club made approximately $30,000 and members hope to continue to grow that amount every year.

The club is in the middle of its membership drive and is encouraging local residents to join to support Mustang Athletics.

“We’re working to make it affordable to people,” said Cindy Friddrichs, the club’s media coordinator.

The memberships include the following packages: Family ($25), Mustang ($50), Bronze ($150), Silver ($300), Gold ($575) and Platinum $1,000). Bronze and above come with two general admission passes to all Marble Falls Independent School District athletic events, while the pricier ones include various special recognitions.

“The money goes to all our sports, not just to football,” Friddrichs said. “We assist with other sports, such as power lifting, cross country, soccer and tennis. We have around 14 sports we contribute to all year long.”
