Robinson’s cheer team will be hosting a fundraiser Monday, Sept. 19 at the Chipotle on Gandy.  Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the team to be used for their necessities.

“The cheerleaders support Robinson Athletics in all aspects. This is a way for students to support the cheerleaders,” Robinson cheer coach Jeff Melesky said. “With the competition season coming up [there are] all kinds of added expenses.”

Melesky said the fundraiser will cover various team expenses, including senior night gifts, team meals and bows. The fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. and will be held at the Gandy Chipotle (3696 W Gandy Blvd, Tampa, FL 33611). To support Robinson Cheer, students should present a picture of the flyer posted the Robinson Cheer Twitter to the cashier.
