Recently some local businesses have received phone calls from a business, unauthorized by Clover Park School District, alleging to be part of an advertising fund raiser for Lakes High School. Prior to participating in any Lakes High School advertising fund raiser, local business owners/managers are encouraged to contact Lakes High School athletic director Joe Keller, to verify the authenticity of the company promoting a fund raising activity.
For many years, Lakes and Clover Park High Schools have successfully contracted with fund raising organizations on calendar and poster projects to benefit high school athletics. Any company using aggressive tactics to gain financial support from local businesses is not under contract with any Clover Park School District school.
“These partnerships have been very positive and have benefited our students,” said Keller. “It is unfortunate that a bogus company is trying to take advantage of our local supporters. We hope by informing our local businesses of this possible scam, any negative impacts will be avoided.” Keller can be reached at 253-583-5579.
