We had 15 players from the varsity team volunteer for about an hour and a half helping to prepare the luminaries for the Sunset House’s Love Always fundraiser. The fundraiser is in February and participants can buy a luminary for $10 in honor of a loved one who’s passed away. The preparation involves organizing and cleaning mason jars and then adding individual candles so they can be lit in the snow in the winter.
We got involved with the Sunset House 4 years ago because the parent of one of our players is a volunteer at the Sunset House. We really enjoy being able to give back to such a great organization in our community and we look forward to it every year.
