Cowbell restaurant
treats cheerleaders

Cowbell at Rock Row honored Westbrook High School’s varsity cheerleaders, coaches and families March 4 with a banquet – on the house.

The restaurant gave the cheerleaders a donation and two gift cards to raffle off. It also presented a gift to senior captain Liliana Waterman.

“My team and I would like to thank Cowbell for sponsoring us for the month of February,” Waterman said in a press release. “These last few seasons (have) been a long hard process of rebuilding our cheer program. Cowbell’s donations will give us the boost we need to push the team to the next level.”

Travis Sanipas, Cowbell’s district manager, said the family-driven restaurant aims to give back to local families. “The Westbrook Blue Blazes cheerleaders represent the spirit of this community,” he said in the press release.

Deanna Karam, the restaurant’s general manager, said the cheerleaders are “well deserving.”

Sarah Redman, who co-coaches the squad with head coach Nicole Bennett, said Cowbell “gave us Class A treatment.”
