July 28 – Blood Drive on Monday

Caroline Newman (Acalanes Girls LAX), a Girl Scout from Lafayette, is partnering with the Monument Crisis Center and the Blood Centers of the Pacific to hold a Community Blood Drive on Monday, July 28 at the Monument Crisis Center in Concord.

Caroline, who is going to be a senior this fall at  Acalanes High School, is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award project: Blood Donation Awareness Campaign & Community Blood Drive.

The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in scouting, recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through remarkable “Take Action” projects that have a sustainable impact on their communities.

In a leadership group last year at Acalanes, Caroline became involved in the school’s Healthy Choices Board that helps organize, among other things, an annual blood drive.

“After donating blood for the first time last year,  I learned that about one in seven people entering a hospital need blood,” Caroline said. “Nearly 60 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, but less than 5 percent actually donates.”

“In my conversations with medical professionals from the  Blood Centers of the Pacific, I learned that once people donate they are likely to become lifelong donors. Several of the reasons people do not donate include little opportunity, fear and lack of understanding of the need for blood,” she said.

“With this new insight and an interest to help, I decided to develop a plan to build awareness for the need to donate blood, as well as to communicate the simplicity of actually donating.”

The  Monument Crisis Center in Concord is acting as the host site, and local businesses, including BMW of Concord and Fry’s Electronics, are joining in as active participants, Caroline said.

The blood drive will be in Monument’s parking lot at at 1990 Market St. To schedule your appointment, visit www.bloodheroes.com.

Year-End Gift Matching

TIME SENSITIVE!

Fantastic news!  We are very excited to bring you our official “Gift Matching” web page on our  http://acalanesboosters.com/  web site.  The employee Matching Gift Program could easily be one of the year’s largest fundraising efforts for the Acalanes Boosters’ Club.   ANYONE who donated to the ABC this year could request matching gift funds from their employers.   Please take a minute to check if your employer has a Matching Gift Program.  We have hundreds of ABC donators who can potentially raise funds through this program.

Let’s try to collect as much FREE money as we can for our student athletes.  They deserve it!  This is time-sensitive and the cut off for requests is upon us, either Dec. 31, or Jan. 31, 2014. for fiscal year 2013.

Participating employers will have one or two+ donor programs:

1. Employers will match 1:1 eligible dollars donated.

2. Employers will provide a volunteer grant ie. $500 for volunteer hours per their guidelines.

For example, I have already contacted my employer and the ABC will receive $350 matching dollars for my donations, AND another $500 volunteer grant for meeting their criteria of 20-30 volunteer hours/calendar year.  $850 FREE dollars to the ABC.  WOW!  We have already received a few more matching gift donations this year as well.

Below are some easy instructions to follow.  If for any reason you are having difficulty with your submission, please feel free to contact me or your employer.  Mary Piscitelli 765-0457, I will be happy to help you.

A.      What is the proposed process?  It is very simple and will take just a few minutes.  (Time well spent!)

Go to the “acalanesboostersclub.com” web site.

Click on the last tab  ‘Gift Matching”, and it will bring you directly to the “Double the Donations” link and type in your company name.

See if your employer will match your donation!

Enter your company name ____________________________________________________

:

B.     If your employer participates, all their contact information will appear as well as any pertinent links to their company specific guidelines and submission forms etc.  If your company is not registered, I encourage you to call your HR department and inquire with them, sometimes it’s not publicized.

C.       Some employers will allow you to submit your request electronically, by e-mail, regular mail, &/or fax.  If your company has a secured web or e-mail, you will need your employee number and perhaps a password if you haven’t set it up already.      IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THIS INFORMATION, OR GET FRUSTRATED, PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP!   Call them directly for assistance.  They are very willing and happy to help guide you through the process.

D.  Send Brad and I an e-mail with a brief explanation of your donations &/or hours volunteered for that calendar year and we will confirm your qualifying donations when your employer contacts us.  If you need a receipt, we can provide that as well.

E.    Provide your company with;

-Your employee information
-Dollar amount you donated and are requesting a match for &/or number of hours volunteered.  Your donation was to the Acalanes Boosters’ Club
-ABC receipt, IF requested by the company.  (We can provide you with an ABC receipt)
-Contact information for our ABC rep. Brad Smith / or Mary Piscitelli
-ABC Tax ID  # 23-7428299, and school address 1200 Pleasant Hill Rd.
All the information you will need is listed on the web page for you.

Most companies already have the Acalanes Boosters Club information in their system.  Our Not-for-Profit Federal Tax ID# is nationally recognized.   Once the employer verifies the request, a check will be mailed directly to the ABC.  The checks are cut either monthly or quarterly according to their protocol.

What if you still have questions?

For questions regarding your company’s programs, please contact your employer’s HR or community giving department.  They are very helpful.  Most of the necessary information is also available on your company intranet.

Oct 17 – Acalanes Dons Water Polo Team Silenced by DFAL Rival Campolindo

Click on photo to view entire gallery

The Acalanes Men’s water polo team has had a rollercoaster of season, which took a turn for the worse last Wednesday October 17, as the Dons faced off against their cross-town rivals the Campolindo Cougars. Traditionally, the Dons have overcome the Cougars without much of a challenge, defeating them in last year’s NCS quarterfinals by a ten-goal difference. Unfortunately for the Dons, however, history did not repeat itself, and the Cougars came out claws bared, jumping to a three-goal lead at the half. Late in the fourth quarter, after lying dormant for the majority of the game, the Dons offense had a sudden revival, sparked by seniors Jacob Welcomer and Connor Reid. The Dons managed to slim the score margin from five goals to one, but weren’t able to capitalize on their final offensive possession and the game ended with a final score of 13-12. This loss puts the Dons at a 2-2 record in the DFAL (Diablo Foothill Athletic League), and leaves them scrambling for a shot at an NCS playoff berth, something that is no longer a guarantee for the team. The Dons will go up against the Las Lomas Knights next week in the final round of DFAL play, and are hoping to end league play on a high note and gain some momentum heading into the final weeks of the season.

The Dons struck first with a counter attack goal from senior Andrew Schnugg. Sophomore Jack Hillman broke a 1-1 tie with a goal of his own. The Matadors responded forcefully with back to back goals 45 seconds apart. Miramonte took a 3-2 lead into halftime.
The third quarter started slowly with both defense’s controlling the game. Junior Connor Reid scored a goal with 2:36 left in the third quarter to tie the game at three.

Defense and goal tending dominated the first three quarters but the fourth quarter was all offense. Senior Connor Mattox and Reid scored goals but Miramonte matched them to tie the score at 5 a piece. With 2:47 left in the fourth quarter Schnugg fouled Miramonte star Charlie Wisner. Wisner took advantage of his 5 meter shot and scored what ultimately became the deciding goal. Acalanes had two more scoring chances hitting the goal post twice but the Matadors were able to fend off the Dons.

FINAL CALL FOR THE GREAT WALL!

The tile donor wall erected on the back of the library wall is scheduled for completion in November, so this is truly the final call for those of you that would like a tile.  Everyone is invited to participate.

If you haven’t seen the new Heaston Aquatic Center (AKA the ‘Beast’), we invite you to take a self guided tour and learn a little something about Don Parent Power. From the Bond issue to the Booster Bash, you’ve helped create something truly extraordinary and lasting for both Acalanes and the broader community.

Build it, and they will come.  Like the movie, the line of user groups seeking our facility is now longer than I have room to mention. Obviously, this is good for Acalanes, aquatic sports and the Lafayette community.

To all of our supporters, thank you for your confidence, commentary, and of course, your cash, in seeing this project through.   As part of a parent group we can only describe as ‘exceptional’, you are all invited to take your place on this perpetual tribute to the fortitude and spirit of living and parenting in Lafayette.

FINAL CUTOFF 10-31.  For more information contact:
