ABGC cheerleaders host bake sale Oct. 10 at Ossian Hall Park

Cheerleaders

The Annandale Boys and Girls Club’s (ABGC) cheerleading team is having a bake sale and raffle with multiple prizes Saturday, Oct. 10, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., at Ossian Hall Park. The grand prize will be a $100 Visa gift card. Other prizes include gift cards to Duck Chang’s, Chipotle, and other restaurants.

The cheerleaders will be at the park, which is across the street from Annandale High School, cheering at a youth football game. The team is raising money so the girls can participate, for the first time, in a regional competition. They went to the Alexandria Holiday Invitational Cheerleading Competition last December as spectators, and this year, they want to compete, says team mom Reina Worrell.

There are 32 girls age 5-13 on the cheerleading team, although boys would be welcome, Worrell says. Anyone can join, regardless of experience or ability. There are no tryouts. They cheer at ABGC football games and appear at community events, such as the Annandale Fall Parade.

Team members are students at Columbia, Braddock, Olde Creek, and other nearby schools. Many of them hope to one day try out for their high school cheerleading squad.
