I’m always having new experiences and meeting people who have a heart to help others! On November 20, and again on January 16, I attended Columbia City High School Wrestling meets. The team decided to wrestle for a cause with proceeds being given to our organization. Everyone on the team, as well as coaches and managers, chose a cancer to represent and wore a shirt at both meets designating their choice. Between November 20 and January 16, a silent auction was held for these shirts, as well as several other fundraising activities.
I was at both meets with our cancer ribbons, and once again people were amazed at the variety of cancers represented. On January 16th I was honored to be able to thank the team and all the supporters in the stands for their generosity. A total of $730 was donated ! Thank you Columbia City High School Eagle Wrestlers!!
