WHS WE ACT hosts No-Shave November contest
WABASSO — It got a little hairy in November at Wabasso High School.
The WE ACT club sponsored a No-Shave November contest to raise funds for its community chest that helps support families in need due to cancer cases or other tragedy.
In the November contest that concluded at 2 p.m. Tuesday, eight men (staff and students) and 15 women (staff and students) participated in not shaving during the month. Plastic cups were lined up in the office window for contributors to place their monetary bets on who had the best mustache/beard or hairy legs.
The one male and one female with the least amount of donations raised were asked to cross-dress on an upcoming school day. Myles Zeug, receiving only $5, and was asked to wear a princess costume. Jeanette Rohlik, receiving only $2.09 had to wear men’s clothing for a day.
Overall donations totaled $376.26 for their fundraising efforts. District Superintendemnt Wade McKittrick raised the highest level of donations with $103.50.
WE ACT typically gives up to $1,000 per family and recently raised $1,300 in a bucket fundraiser at a football game to raise funds for a Hills Beaver Creak football player who had been injured playing the sport.
