dog-full-logoConcessions at Rentschler Stadium & Gampel Pavillion  Our biggest revenue source comes from the Concessions at UConn Football and Basketball games. We are fortunate to have a contract with UConn to be part of this significant fundraising opportunity.

Thanks to the many parent volunteers who helped staff the Chicken Fry Fry at Rentschler stadium for UConn football season and the concession stand at Gampel Pavilion for Men’s and Women’s basketball games.

We had a great year!
