Welcome to the Friends of the Wildcats Foundation!

Where healthy bodies create healthy minds

Friends of the Wildcats Foundation is hosting their fourth annual

Night with the Wildcats

Friday March 1st, 2019
5:30 – 9:00 pm – Lamar Street Event Center – 5889 Lamar St Arvada

We have been thoroughly entertained and inspired by our past speakers including Mark Schlereth, Vic Lombardi and Jason Romero. This year our keynote speaker is
Frank DeAngelis
Frank DeAngelis
The legendary and inspirational principal of Columbine High School will share his words and wisdom about the day his worst nightmare became a reality.

We will also have dinner along with a live / silent auction and games. All proceeds go towards capital improvements to the athletic department at Arvada West High School. Although we were unable to get the GOCO grant we tried for 2 years to be awarded, Jeffco has stepped in to build an all-weather synthetic track for us!! With all the money we have earned over the past 3 years we have been able to fulfill a lot on our wishlist of athletic improvements at Awest including: a groomer for the baseball/softball fields, Pixellot cameras for the gym, new windscreens, and storage sheds for our teams. Our next goals are to build 2 beach volleyball courts for Jefferson County’s newest sport and improve our turf athletic field.
Tickets are now on sale under our events tab.

Our next event is our “Golf with the Wildcats” Tournament on Saturday, September 28th, 2019. Save the date and we will post updated information soon.
The Friends of the Wildcats Foundation was able to purchase a much-needed grooming machine for the baseball and softball fields at Arvada West High School. We have big ideas in the near future to expand our athletic facilities. Please visit our site again soon to learn of our plans.
We are Arvada West High School’s newest Foundation dedicated solely to raising money for AWHS athletics.  We are a tenacious, steadfast student body and we are looking to match the condition of our athletic facilities to our strength.  We established this Foundation because we found a need for improvements to various parts of our athletic program.  Our student athletes need amenities that are updated and rejuvenated on a consistent basis to keep pace with the ever-changing sports evolution.  To benefit the maximum number of recipients, our focus will be on capital improvements which we will fund with fundraising events, private donations, sponsorships and grants.  We truly believe in our motto that “Healthy bodies create healthy minds.” Join us in our effort to make Arvada West High School the “strongest” school in the state!
