Fundraiser info: The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society approaches schools each year to run a fundraiser. Formerly “Pennies for Patients” the event is now called Light Up the Night and encourages a community walk to honor those who fight this battle. The IN SHOC Club decided to combine their change collection with the community walk.


Raffle blankets: Purchase tickets for $1.00 during lunch periods for a chance to win.


6th period classes: The class that raises the most money gets a pizza party. 1 student in class will have an envelope or jar for students to drop change in. A student will ask for any donations at the beginning of class each day. On Friday, Oct. 22, the envelopes will be collected and the winner should be announced at the end of the day.

School goal: $2,300.00 to represent the 23,600 deaths from this cancer per year.
