GAME ON! Capital Campaign -- Updated 9/19/19

Concessions, Bathrooms and a New Press Box! Game On!

It’s Homecoming week at Dunwoody High School. The students have a fun dress-up theme every day. The traditional parade down Vermack Road is scheduled for Thursday at 4 PM. A new HoCo Queen and King will be announced on Friday at half-time of the football game against Northview and a dance is scheduled for Saturday night in the DHS gym.  Many believe there’s one thing wrong with this plan…..  Most of these homecoming events will actually take place at DHS’ home on Vermack Drive, however the football game and crowning of the Queen and King will take place behind Chamblee High School. Definitely not at home.

Enter GAME ON! (Click link to learn more about Game On.) First came bleachers, then came landscaping, new walkways, fencing and a Wildcat Alley. Last year, Game On! asked us to help #lightupthefield. The Dunwoody community responded in a MAJOR way and DHS Football was able to host North Springs for a scrimmage and Wesleyan for a pre-season game. The atmosphere was electric.  Literally…there were LIGHTS.  Multiple sports can practice on the field after sunset. The community can cheer on the Wildcats on the DHS property….at home!  

But….you can’t go to the bathroom without trekking to the gym…or braving the portable potties. And, it's just plain embarrassing to tell a visiting team's fan (especially from our 6A Region) that they have to climb the stairs to the gym or use the porta potties.

The Game On Campaign has plans to remedy this bathroom problem by replacing the current baseball concession stand with a structure that will include bathrooms, a concession stand and a press box. 

If every citizen of Dunwoody who has ever had a kid at DHS, ever will have a kid at DHS, or just benefits from being a citizen of our great city would give $30 to this campaign DHS may be able to get these bathrooms in time for baseball, soccer, track, and lacrosse seasons!?  Surely almost every Dunwoody Citizen can afford $30? #nomoreportapotties

Click here to donate your $30….or more!  Let’s keep working to make it possible to someday have a Homecoming game at home!
