On Sunday, November 10th, from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, the Muscatine High School (MHS) Boys Baseball Team will hold its first ever mattress fundraiser. Through this sale, the team hopes to fund both their short-term needs and long-term goals.

The day of the sale, Custom Fundraising Solutions will have mattresses in all sizes (from twin to California King) along with frames, pillows, and mattress protectors, available for purchase in the Van Hecke Center. Interested shoppers may test any of the mattresses on display and can utilize several different payment options and plans once they make their purchase. As an additional perk, customers can have their mattresses delivered. New, high quality, name brand mattresses, each comes with a factory warranty and will cost significantly less that it would in a traditional furniture store. First responders, Muscatine Community School District employees, and military personnel will all receive a ten percent discount. Players who refer shoppers to the sale will receive prizes as well.

MHS Boys Baseball Head Coach Grant Pippert considers this fundraiser a remarkable chance both for residents and for his team. “This fundraiser is that it truly is a win-win situation. Our community will get an opportunity to check out high quality mattresses, pillows, frames, etcetera that are at a discounted price with no pressure—this experience is unlike those at a mattress retailer. Not only will the community benefit, but so will our baseball program.”

A portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to support the Boys Baseball Team. Through their sales, they hope to fund many opportunities. Pippert shared, “this year, we hope to use this money to fund a charter bus for our season opener at number one ranked Johnston . . . and another charter bus to take us to the state tournament to conclude the season. We are also looking to purchase new varsity jerseys this season . . .. The long-term goal is to build an indoor facility for our high school baseball and softball teams, along with our feeder teams.”

Though the practice facility will not get built for several years, Pippert considers saving for it now essential, as it will play a vital role. “There isn’t a magic formula to improve as a player or a program, it takes dedication, hard work, and discipline. Our staff and players are willing to put in the work; however, we need a facility to be able to do it.”

In all areas, the MHS Boys Baseball Program looks to minimize costs for players while giving them positive experiences. By supporting them through the upcoming mattress sale, you will allow them to stay true to these goals.
