Plano East Baseball Booster Club has launched their biggest fundraiser of the year selling fresh fruit. Gala apples from Washington, ruby red grapefruit from the Rio Grande Valley, and navel oranges from California are available for pre-ordering now.
The baseball teams from Plano East Senior High, as well as McMillen High School and Williams High School, will continue taking orders through Friday, February 17.
“We’ve had sons in the Plano East Baseball program for the past five years,” said David Alvey a Plano East parent. “Every year we have repeat customers because this is some of the freshest fruit you’ll find locally. It’s a healthy snack alternative for families.”
The proceeds from the fruit sales goes to the Plano East Baseball Booster Club, which helps fund field upgrades, facility improvements, uniforms and new equipment for the Plano East Baseball program.
A full box of fruit is $30 or $15 for a half box. Buyers can choose to mix two fruits for one full box. There are 36 apples to a box, 18 grapefruit, and 30 oranges in a full box. Fruit will be available for pick up in Murphy from March 18 – 19.
To order fruit, please email David Alvey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972-423-4144.
