At the height of the Pole Creek Fire when the air was dangerous with smoke, many Sisters High events had to be moved to safer areas, and the programs had to bear that expense to move.

 

Sisters Athletic Director, Tim Roth says they had to move their "home" football game to Summit High on a Friday night, and a big volleyball event was also affected. "The same weekend, we had a 16-team volleyball tournament, which brings in a lot of people into the Sisters community, both in the hotels and the restaurants, and we had to move that to Redmond High School, who opened up their building and let us host that event there.  And that took a big hit off of not only the high school in terms of being able to bring in income, but also the whole community."

 

They are holding a number of fundraisers to recoup some of that money they had to spend or that was lost because of the move.

 

The first event is a golf tournament at Black Butte Ranch on October 14th, and they plan to hold a “Bingo” night once a quarter.
