Make a Wish of South Carolina would like to extend a big thank you to the Bluffton Middle School students and faculty for their two week fundraiser that totaled $6,331.47, the highest amount raised from any school in Beaufort County.
Trusted Choice representative Garrett Wrenden surprised the students on check presentation day by announcing that they would match funds.
The students held a two week fundraiser selling bracelets and stars, as well as holding a blue jean day. Lunch was donated by Zaxby's to the winning homeroom for the most money raised. Money raised will go directly to fund a Disney wish trip for Leo Vannoni, an 8-year-old leukemia patient from Bluffton.
We are so proud of the students. It is heartwarming to see their excitement and generosity. A special thank you to the Student Council facilitator, Elizabeth Fisher, in overseeing this event.
Never miss a local story.
