Mattress Sale To Aid James Clemens Football Program

MADISON- Get a good night sleep compliments of the James Clemens High football team. That’s the goal of the Jets as they are hosting their 12th annual Mattress Sale on Sunday, April 28.

A high quality set of bedding is what the high school student-athletes are hoping each buyer receives on their way to a better, restful night’s sleep.

Sunday’s sale will be held 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. inside the school’s cafeteria area and professionally hosted by Charlie Colwell of Customs Fundraising Solutions.

“We have sales people who are experts and can help customers find the right fit for them,” said Chad McGehee, head coach of the James Clemens football team. “Basically, the cafeteria is set up just like any mattress store you can walk into as we have many mattress options on the floor.”

“All the money raised from the sale will go towards renovations and upgrades for the school’s athletic field house,” said Chad McGehee head coach of the Jets. “Every purchase goes toward supporting our football team with equipment and upgrading facilities.” Custom Fundraising Solutions of Alabama will handle the inventory and actual sale of merchandise and all offers are guaranteed. A professional crew will be on hand in the makeshift showroom of the school cafeteria to assist on selections of bedding. In addition to mattresses in all different styles, sizes and firmness, the sale will also include luxury pillows and mattress pads. The brands of mattresses available will include Simmons, Beautyrest and Therapedic among others.

 

“The prices offered are 30-40-percent less than retail and all mattresses come with a full comfort guarantee and factory warranty,” added McGehee.

Because Custom Fundraising Solutions has very little overhead of operating the sale, that fact allows sales 30-40-percent under retail prices. In the 11 years the football program has hosted the event, $67-thousand has been made from the sales, all of which has gone straight to the football portion of athletics at the Class 7A school. McGehee’s message about the event included, “We ask everyone to come and support athletes. We’re not selling something people don’t need.”

Once the customer decides their choice of bedding, they place their order and the goods are shipped directly to the customer’s front door.

“We have many satisfied customers. In fact, I’ve never heard a complaint,” added McGehee.
