The Hamilton Athletic Booster Club (HABC) will celebrate the grand opening its digital store March 10, offering special pricing for spirit wear online and allowing Charger fans to purchase gear directly from the club. HABC has teamed with the National Interscholastic Athletic Development (NIAD) to create a tool that helps the club fundraise while providing products that bear the logos of the high school and its sports teams.
“This is a great way for our organization to capitalize on the growing trend of online buying,” HBAC President Kelly Newman said. “This will allow the booster club to fundraise year round by having the online availability of the digital store anytime someone wants to show their support through purchase of spirit wear.”
To supplement fundraising efforts of its clients, NIAD offers 50 percent of profits back to the school on all items purchased through the digital store.
“We are providing the Hamilton Athletic Booster Club the opportunity to create a new revenue source that utilizes its logos and spirit wear,” said Joe Barbieri, owner and partner of NIAD. “The great concept of the digital store is that the community and fans of Hamilton High School will be able to purchase spirit wear 24/7/365. And, the club won’t have to worry about handling merchandise or money. All digital store purchases are delivered directly to the buyer.”
