With a goal of $300, the group raised $465.67.

The Children’s Hospital will use the proceeds for such purposes as patient programs, research, staffing, family support services, specialized equipment, education or facility enhancement.  

The houses raised: Gr8West: $97.15, Gr8East: $63.69, Badger West $30.50, Badger South: $92.54, Supernova Mittelstaedt,

Aspinwall& Strohbush: $68.18 and SuperNova: Symes, Schaff & Weibel: $113.61.  SuperNova: Symes, Schaff & Weibel raised the most money and they won an ice cream party.

An anonymous donor matched the amount raised and has paid for the ice cream party. A second anonymous donor donated $500, bringing the total raised to $1,431.34.
