The Syracuse-Dunbar-Avoca FBLA held a Gold Out in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month at both the home softball and volleyball games on Sept. 21 in memory of Addison Hestermann.
They raised $1,263 from a split-the-pot fundraiser, donations and gold t-shirt sales. The split-the-pot money was donated back. Over 200 t-shirts were sold and worn to the games. The volleyball team wore the gold shirts for warm-ups, and the softball team wore them as game shirts.
The money will be donated to the Pediatric Cancer Action Network. The organization’s mission is to reduce the financial burden placed on families diagnosed with pediatric cancer and to advocate for a cure through awareness, education and action in and around Nebraska.
