2018 Century Club Steak Fry – Aug. 17

Dear Assumption Family and Friends,

We would like to invite you to become a member of this year’s Assumption Century Club. All Century Club members are invited to our Annual Steak Fry on Friday, August 17. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the Assumption Courtyard between the gym and the auditorium. This event is free to all Century Club members. This event has been a great Assumption tradition for over thirty (30) years and a fun way to kick off the fall sports season.

As an added bonus this year, prior to the Steak Fry the varsity football team will be playing a scrimmage against Davenport Central starting at 4:30 p.m. at the St. Vincent Athletic Complex. We are encouraging all of our members to attend at least part of the scrimmage before heading over to Assumption for a fabulous steak dinner and a chance to hear from the Assumption coaches about their upcoming seasons.

The Century Club’s sole mission is to provide financial assistance to the AHS girls’ and boys’ athletic programs. Each year the Century Club helps support all of our team sports by funding new equipment, special projects and facility improvements. Last year alone the Century Club provided in excess of $28,000 in financial assistance to Assumption’s Athletic Programs.

Our AHS athletic programs enjoyed continued success this past school year. The summer of 2017 was a summer to remember! The AHS softball and baseball teams each brought home state championships in exciting fashion! In addition, our girls’ soccer team won yet another state championship this season (that makes seven (7) state titles over the past eight (8) years!). Numerous other AHS programs and individual athletes had outstanding seasons this past year. Your membership dues directly assist our athletes with accomplishing these amazing achievements.

PLEASE CONSIDER BECOMING A CENTURY CLUB MEMBER. The “Century” in our name signifies the amount of the annual dues – $100.00. However, a growing number of AHS supporters are choosing to become “Gold Members” for $200.00. Membership dues are TAX DEDUCTIBLE*. We strive to have a broad base of support across the AHS community, so either amount is greatly appreciated.

To become a member of the Century Club, we ask that you complete the attached CENTURY CLUB MEMBERSHIP FORM and return the completed form, along with your dues, to: Assumption High School, Attention: Century Club, 1020 West Central Park Avenue, Davenport, Iowa 52804. Checks should be made payable to “AHS Century Club”. If you have a student, you can elect to pay your dues as part of your school registration. Please see Membership Form for online payment option (convenience fee charged) as well!

As in the past, we will be raffling off some great prizes at the Steak Fry. Raffle tickets are available for purchase, 1 for $10, 3 for $25 or 8 for $50 by indicating your preference on the Membership Form.

Thank you for your support of our strong athletic tradition at Assumption!
