State champion juniors slate fundraiser

The Scappoose Juniors Little League team needs some financial help them to get to the Western Regionals tournament next week in Irvine, Calif.

The team receives a small stipend from national Little League, and the local Scappoose Little League also contributes some money. Alaska Airlines has also given them a break on tickets. Still the team is short of all the funds they need for the weeklong trip. In addition to the airfare, they still have motel rooms, meals and a van rental to pay for.

The team is holding a car wash and barbecue this Wednesday at the Scappoose Middle School, starting at 3 p.m.

Persons willing to help can also make a tax-deductible contribution by mailing it to: Scappoose Little League, P.O. Box 592, Scappoose, OR 97056. The tax ID number is #93-0849752. Donors may also contact Albert Bernal, 503-543-7445 or Joe Backus, 503-860-5557.
