Cheerleaders gear up for dog wash
Milwaukie High cheerleaders will hold a dog wash fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday (July 27) at Sportsmans Warehouse, located at 9401 S.E. 82nd Ave., near Panda Express.
The cost of a basic dog wash will be $5; a deluxe wash, which includes conditioner and ear cleaning, is $10. Dogs will also receive a bandana and dog treat. Proceeds will go toward uniforms, camp and coaches salaries.
Cheerleading is nonfunded by the school district and it costs over $1,400 for each girl to take part, according to head cheer coach Stephanie Morrison.
Supplies for the dog wash were donated by area businesses Starbucks, RagMan, Creature Comforts Pet Care, Holistic Pet Center, Petco, Southgate Boarding and Grooming, Banfield Pet Hospital, A To Z Pets, Wichita Feed and Hardware, Milwaukie Bowl, Pietros, Eagle Bargains, Nestles, Sullys Restaurant, Cha Cha Cha Restaurant, A Cut Above Grooming and Sportsmans Warehouse.
