ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A volunteer parent with the St. Charles High School Booster Club has been charged with stealing thousands of dollars from the "Project Graduation" fund that was supposed to put on a graduation night party for the seniors next spring.
Jane Windorski, 44, took over as treasurer of the booster club in August and it has since been discovered that $9,000 is missing from the club.
Deanna Towell, the President of the booster club, says parents raise money by working the concession stand at the football and basketball games and that at least two-thirds of the funds that go toward "Project Graduation" are made during football season.
According to investigators, Windorski admitted to using the debit card from the booster club's account to make withdrawals at Ameristar Casino, booked a hotel room on Priceline, and made purchases on iTunes.
"She used the account debit card at various places across the city like her personal checking account," says Towell.
The booster club's "Project Graduation" has been going on for more than 20 years. The money raised by the booster club is used to lease out the St. Peters Rec Plex for an all-night drug and alcohol free party on graduation night.
The club is still looking for methods to recoup the money lost. If you would like to donate, please send donations here:
