Fargo Fundraisers- 1) Mojo's 20% Proceeds 2) Fargo Lottery Tickets

We wanted to congratulate Senior Sergio Villalobos and Junior Jeff Nugent on qualifying for the 2018 US Marine Corps USAW Junior National Championships in Fargo, ND, which will take place from July 12th through the 20th at the Fargo Dome.  Jeff qualified for the Greco National Championships in the junior division at 160 lbs, while Sergio will compete at 195 lbs in Freestyle in the junior division.  Villalobos has earned three previous All-American honors at this tournament, including a runner-up finish at Cadet 195 in 2016, while Jeff is wrestling in Fargo for the first time.  Both Jeff and Sergio will participate in the Fargo Training Camp at the University of Illinois and will also travel with the Freestyle and Greco juggernaut that is Team IL/USAW to Fargo in July.

Expenses for the training camp and tournament can add up to nearly $1000 each so we are helping Sergio and Jeff out as much as we can.  Below you will find two options on how you can help them cover some of their expenses for one of the best wrestling tournaments in the world.  

1) Mojo's Proceeds Fundraiser- Wednesday, June 20th and Thursday June 21st
On Wednesday, June 20th and Thursday, June 21st, when you present the enclosed filer (paper or phone), Mojo's will donate 20% of your bill to the expenses for Sergio and Jeff.  Mojo's is located at 2758 Maple Ave in Downers Grove and is owned and operated by a great friend to the DGS Wrestling program Jon Scoggin.  Please come out and support not only Sergio and Jeff, but also a great local business in Mojo's.  Mojo's East Coast Eats- Downers Grove Website

2) USAW IL Lottery Ticket Fundraiser
Each year Team IL/USAW has team members sell IL Lottery Tickets for $20 each to help fund their expenses.  Tickets are $20 each and you are given numbers for the IL Pick 4 Evening Draw for the month of August.  Your numbers are good for the entire month and you must check the numbers on your own.  Here is how you can purchase lottery tickets to help fund Jeff and Sergio for the IL/USAW National Team:
  1. Complete this PayPal purchase for $20 (or more for multiple tickets)
2.  Once the tickets are delivered, you will receive an email with your numbers for the August IL Pick 4 evening draw. 

3.  The DGS Wrestling program will have the hard copies of your lottery ticket and will keep those for you if you win.
