Pennies for Patients

By, Lauren Little

In the month of March 2017, Woodlake High participated in a fundraiser for patients who are diagnosed with Leukemia & Lymphoma. This benefit is called Pennies for Patients which has been a successful fundraiser since 1994. Millions of dollars have been raised through spare change and pennies by more than 10 million elementary, middle, and high school students throughout the country! The Woodlake students have successfully raised $921.63; however, they did not make their goal of $1,750. But, the students had a great time fundraising, trying their hardest, and next year they are hoping to do better! Throughout this fundraiser, the school competed in a competition by 6th period classes to see who could fundraise the most; the winner of this competition would result in a pizza party. Congratulations to Ms. Biello’s 6th period class for the winner of the pizza party competition. Way to go Woodlake High School for participating in a life changing experience, until next time..
