Eighth-grader’s hospital fundraiser nets $1,431
Savanna Oaks Middle School eighth grader Julia Rimkus put together a fundraiser for the UW Health American Family Children’s Hospital (AFCH) that ran from Dec. 9-13.
Each house had a milk jug to put the money they raised into and the money will go to the Children’s Hospital Area of Greatest Need to support their patients and families.
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.
