MJW Pom and Cheer stages its first Showcase Extravaganza performance event
All 11 of McHenry Junior Warriors Pom and Cheer teams take turns in the spotlight Sunday (Nov. 10) for the first-ever MJW Pom and Cheer Showcase Extravaganza event at McHenry High School West Campus, 4724 W. Crystal Lake Road.
The public is invited to see not only the MJW teams, but also McHenry High School pom and cheer team performances. The fun begins at 4 p.m. with a display of gift baskets that each team has put together to raffle off to lucky attendees. Raffle tickets will be on sale until performances begin at 5:30 p.m. Ticket prices for the basket raffles are: one for $1, six for $5, 13 for $10 and 27 for $20. Winners will be announced between performances.
The showcase is a great way for friends and family to see the teams perform competition routines right here in McHenry while also raising funds for the non-profit MJW Pom and Cheer organization. Admission is $5 per person, and children age 3 and younger are free.
If you’re interested in learning more about the organization and its competitive teams, now is your chance. More than 230 young ladies participate annually in MJW Pom and Cheer programs.
We’re very excited, as an organization, to be able to showcase all the wonderful routines our squads have been working on diligently since August. It is with great pleasure that we present them to the McHenry community and we look forward to hopefully inspiring new participants, as said Laurie Arslani, president of MJW Pom and Cheer. We hope everyone enjoys the show!
Organizers plan to make this an annual event. For more details about MJW Pom and Cheer or the Showcase Extravaganza, please visit the website at www.mjwpomandcheer.org or Like our Facebook page at MJW Pom and Cheer.
