Whitefish school officials are warning residents of a scam involving a Texas company soliciting sponsorships to support the high school athletic teams.

Several local businesses have been contacted by a company called Touchdown Sports in Texas seeking sponsorship to support Whitefish High School, according to the school district. The company is claiming to have a connection with Whitefish High School Activities and has even used coaches’ names in their communication as an attempt to strengthen their plea.

Businesses should be aware that Touchdown Sports has not been authorized to conduct a fundraiser in support of Whitefish High School. There is no connection between Touchdown Sports and the high school, administrators say.

Businesses are asked to be cautious of non-local businesses seeking sponsorship or fundraising support for Whitefish High School.

Anyone who has been contacted by this company or any other out-of-state company seeking sponsorship support for Whitefish High School is asked to contact Aric Harris, WHS Activities Director, or Kerry Drown, WHS Principal at 862-8600.
