Green & Gold Society
The Green & Gold Society raises funds to support athletics at MCHS.
The executive is a friendly group of interested parents who volunteer their time to assist student athletes fund various sports activities during their high school career at MCHS.
The executive meetings are held the first teaching Monday of each month.
We provide players and parents fundraising opportunities to help defray team costs and expenses through local bingos (non-smoking), concessions and casinos. For more information, see Concession and Bingo Schedules.
We pay expenses associated with tournament entry fees, player accommodations for out of town games, uniforms, T-shirts, team pictures for some sports and the annual Green & Gold banquet and awards evening.
