The hard work put in by the athletes at Bertrand Community School reaped big benefits as they were able to meet their goal of $1000. “The kids really stepped up to organize and put together this fund raiser,” said Mark Dethlefs, one of the B-Club Sponsors. “They were able to round up some nice prizes for the raffle.” Local businesses offered gift certificates, Husker football and volleyball tickets, and a long board made out of the old wooden bleachers taken out of the west gym last summer.
Winners of the raffle were as follows:
$25 Gift Certificate to C-Plus – Paul Bachman
$25 Gift Certificate to Main Street Market – Sam Jensen
$50 Gift Certificate to Plum Pretty Boutique – Kim Ford
$50 Gift Certificate to Divine Boutique—Karma Hickey
$50 Gift Certificate to Blue Moose –Jennifer Sand
Husker Football Tickets – First National Bank of Bertrand—Nate Anders
Husker Volleyball Tickets from Betty Dahlgren – Brenda High
Long Board donated by Scott Schwarz – Paula Jacobs
The money raised will be donated to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund. The student athletes would like to thank all the local business for their donations and to all those that purchased raffle tickets for the benefit.
