The planning for this event started as soon as last year’s ended. Hundreds of hours were spent planning, organizing, contacting donors, soliciting donations, etc…
Athletes helped by contacting over 60 sponsors from all over WNY. Athletes gave interviews for local news outlets to raise awareness for this event. Students were featured on morning talk shows in Buffalo and local newspapers in Genesee County. In total, for their hard work, we are closing in on $24,000 raised this year!
While it is truly a team effort, Allie Scherthoffer was the MVP of this event. Her dedication and selfless approach made sure this event was going to succeed. As a senior, she carried out this event and without her efforts, it would not have been as successful as it was. Allie contacted vendors, was in constant contact with volunteers and made sure the gameday experience was perfect.
