A warning for people helping their local school sports teams. Booster clubs say there's a for-profit company competing with school fundraisers.
As a new business owner in Catoosa, Seth Bailey jumped at the chance to advertise his dog spa and donate to the Catoosa football team at the same time. He says he got a call asking him to buy an ad in this year's team calendar.
Thinking it would go to the kids, he agreed. "They delivered all the calendars, just like they said, but we found out the money was not going to help the school.â€
When the real booster club called asking for help with the official team calendar, he told them he'd already given.
Booster club members say this is happening in several communities. The caller asks you to write a check to "Sports Ad."
Team officials say always call the school first and make sure you know where your money is going.
