On Friday November 18, 2011 the Harrison Wildcats put on a fundraiser to donate money to the local Mel Trotter Missions. The fundraiser was a volleyball match between the boy’s soccer team and the girl’s soccer team at the end of the school day. To raise money for the event all 5th-8th graders who wanted to attend needed to bring at least a dollar to donate and could come to the gym for the last hour of the day.
The event started of with a warm up match between the 6th grade volleyball team and the 6th grade soccer team, in a close 15-13 match won by the soccer team. Following this match the 7th and 8th graders played a close three game series with the volleyball team taking home the victory.
The real victory was the $257 raised by the students during this event. All proceeds from this event went to Mel Trotter to help feed and shelter families during the holidays. We like to thank the parents, teachers, and especially the kids for making this such a successful event.
