(Lander, Wyo.) – Last week, the Lander Valley High School Student Council held fundraising efforts in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation (Wyoming), which on Friday resulted on Assistant Principal Brad Neuendorf getting hung on a wall with duct tape.
“We have been selling stars to hang on a tree, cocoa and apple cider, candy grams, chocolate chip cookie baskets, and hot cocoa mix jars for holiday gifts that will go towards our goal of donating $7000 to MAW this year,” Student Council Advisor Matthew Parsons said.
Last week efforts were solely focused on Make-A-Wish with perks for donors, such as getting to wear a hat in school and raffles. On Friday, a $1 donation got the donor a single strip of duct tape told Neuendorf to the wall.
“My eyelids still have a bit of adhesive on them,” Neuendorf said Monday afternoon. He said he was pleased to get involved for the cause, and he praised the “very active” student council for their efforts.
“The starting line-up of the boys bball team also put lipstick on and kissed a piece of paper with monetary votes deciding who has the ‘hottest lips,’” Parsons said of another Make-A-Wish effort. “The contest will continue throughout the bball season.”
“Last week we raised $703 and we are continuing to sell candy grams, hot chocolate, cider, and the cookie bags along with homemade cocoa mix through the rest of this week,” he added.
“If anyone wants to contribute, they can stop by the front office at LVHS or Central Office with a donation designated to Make-A-Wish and they will let me know so I can keep adding it to our overall tally,” he said.
