The Viking View
Fundraisers at MontgomeryThursday, March 01, 2012 By Erica Charlton
The month of March is a hot spot for fundraising this year at Montgomery. Three different groups, GSA, Pulsera Project and Key Club, are all selling items to raise money for different projects. GSA club, which helps bridge the gap between the lesbian, gay, bisexual and straight community, are selling light purple, glow-in-the-dark bracelets that have the line “Straight but not narrow” written on them. The bracelets, which cost $2, are helping to raise awareness for acceptance of the LGBT community by straight people. Bracelets were sold in February, and will continue in March. The Pulsera Project, started by the IB Spanish class, is a national program that helps young Nicaraguans. Pulsera Project sends Americans to Nicaraguan to teach young people interested in art how to design bracelets, which are then brought back to the United States and sold for $5 each. The money raised then goes back to Nicaragua to help pay for the education of the people who made them. Montgomery is participating in this project for the first time this year, and Dominic Alberigi is heading it. Bracelets will be sold during the month of March in the quad during lunch. The last fundraiser this month is a spaghetti feed the Montgomery’s Key Club will be organizing in conjunction with Kiwanis Club. The funds raised from the feed will go to support Key Club, Kiwanis Club, and the youth division of Kiwanis. The actual event is on March 30, from 5 to 7pm in Montgomery’s cafeteria. And if you plan on going to Mr. Viking, you should come buy a ticket for dinner before hand at lunch in the quad. Tickets will be available the month of March, and the price is yet undecided. So come out and support the different clubs at Montgomery!
