Free the principal! In some cases, people might just say ‘Nah, leave him where he is’ This case, we’ll see. Just kidding,

"Free The Principal" is a clever and fun fundraiser. Well, not fun for Hampden Academy Principal Bill Tracy. But he’s a gamer.

Here’s the deal, Principal Tracy will enter the press box at Hampden Academy, just before the girls varsity soccer game on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 5:30 p.m. Then he will watch the game and support the girls. So far, good.

However after the game, he will not leave. The HA press box will be where Principal Tracy will sleep until the Hampden Academy Music Association, HAMA, Free the Principal Fundraiser meets the goal of raising $2,200.

Here’s how you can help Free Mr Tracy. There will be donation buckets at all events. Donations can also be made by check written out to HAMA, or use VENMO (Hampden Academy Music Association).

There is the Girls soccer game Thursday the 30th when the fundraiser begins.
Will Principal Tracy be sleeping in the press box after the Friday night homecoming football game? That’s Friday the 1st of October at 7 PM FYI, there will be a 50/50 raffle during the game.

Does he wake up for the Saturday morning (Oct 2nd) Community Pancake Breakfast in the press box, or at home? Up to you. The breakfast is outside Hampden Academy between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and minimum donation is $5 per person, $20 per family.

HAMA raises money to send band members on trips.

Also during the events next weekend, HAMA will be collecting non-perishable foods for the Hampden Food Cupboard.
