THE OMAHA BURKE BOOSTER CLUB

Bulldog
  • The Burke Booster Club was started in 1998 to provide assistance and support to Burke students
  • There is a strong tie between positive behavior and education when a student is actively involved with athletics, clubs and other school sponsored activities
  • The primary mission of the Booster Club is to raise funds and provide financial assistance for over 20 school sponsored activities which provides benefit to hundreds of students at Burke. Raising funds happens primarily in 4 ways:
1. Annual Booster Club membership sales (activity pass)
2. Staff the concession stands for Burke events as well as State Track
3. Burke apparel and blanket/stadium seat sales at home games and other open house events at Burke
4. Company specific sponsorships
