2nd annual Jim Popiel Foundation Dinner Tickets Available

Few people have done more to promote and spotlight the accomplishments of student-athletes from Lorain schools than Jim Popiel.

As a teacher at Admiral King High School for more than 40 years, and as a radio announcer on WEOL and WOBL/WDLW, Jim Popiel (aka Jim Allen) encouraged student–athletes, touted their accomplishments and kept the Lorain County community informed about those students.

The Lorain High Athletic Booster Club, to recognize and honor the contributions of Jim Popiel, established the Jim Popiel Foundation in 2018.  On October 12, 2019, the 2nd Annual Jim Popiel Foundation Dinner will be held at German’s Villa.  All financial contributions to the Foundation will be used towards scholarships and capital improvements for the Athletic program.

Please join your friends and former classmates by participating as a sponsor or attendee at an event which promises to be memorable.  The event will include a silent auction, raffles and a brief program. Tickets are $30 per person and include dinner and draft beer.  Please make checks payable to LHS Athletic Boosters (tax deductible).

Tickets can be purchased in the Athletic Department office located in the main office at Lorain High School.
