Spaghetti feed, auction supports kids’ football and cheer league

SANDPOINT — Get in on some tasty chow, bid on great goods and support area kids all at once, at a spaghetti feed and fundraiser coming up on Friday, July 21, in support of the Sandpoint Affordable Football & Cheer League — or SAFL for short.

The fundraiser kicks off at 5 p.m. at Cedar Hills Church, 227 McGhee Road in Kootenai, and everyone is invited.

The event will benefit the SAFL scholarship fund for both youth football players and cheerleaders. Along with the home-cooked spaghetti, there will be a silent auction with merchandise and certificates from Schweitzer Mountain, Triple Play Family Fun Park, Silverwood Theme Park, Spuds Waterfront Grill, Kokanne Coffee, Panhandle Cone & Coffee, Ivano’s Ristorante and more.

Also coming up, on July 28-29 SAFL will host its second free football camp and has now added a cheer camp. Both camps are open to kids in grades 3 through 8, and will be held at Sandpoint Middle School from 6-8 p.m. each day.

Returning for the football camp will be “Coach Red,” who was the favorite guest coach among the players in the league’s June camp. Coach Red played and coached at the collegiate level and is excited to return to Sandpoint, said Director of Coaching Andre Johansen. Johansen will also be introducing the league’s coaching staff at this camp.

As an adjunct to the football camp, SAFL is excited to announce the addition of the cheer program and is looking forward to its first cheer camp. Both of these camps are free; SAFL’s motto is “No kid left behind!”
