WPBHS fundraising efforts

Andrea Hoffman

April 24, 2019

West Point-Beemer High School has done many fundraisers to help those affected by cancer. Through its efforts, the school has raised over $10,000 with the help of staff and students.

Holiday helpers, this year, raised money for Jeff Konkelseki, athletic director. Holiday helpers happens the week before Christmas break where teachers bring in food and drinks to their classrooms. Students are able to buy these items for a dollar, and that money that is donated.

A taco boat sale was also held at one of the school’s wrestling tournaments. All of the proceeds were donated to Cathy Schultz to help her with her cancer battle.

Another fundraiser was during the school’s homecoming week. Students could buy homecoming week t-shirts and a football player’s jersey. This money was also donated to Cathy Schultz.

Another effort was when Ms. Rood’s life skills class made lunches that staff members purchased. The class did this multiple times and donated the money each time to different cancer victims: Adam Skoda, Jeff Konkeleski, Cathy Schultz, and Cindy Sellhorst.
