FSU Students Raise Money For Family In Need Through Fundraisers

Posted: Updated:

A Fairmont State University Sociology Class has been assigned a project to help better the community.

One groups mission is to raise money for a family in need. The project is due in May, but the class has already planned several fundraiser activities.

Travis Minnick's group chose to help a baby named Ellie. She is a "micro preemie" that came into the world at only 27 weeks.

The group will be holding several events over the next couple of months to raise money for Ellie and her parents.

"We've been in touch with the mother," Minnick said. "She has actually wrote us a couple of things about the baby and keeping us in contact with her condition."

There is no specific amount of money that needs to be raised, but the group is hoping to raise as much as they can for the family.

The group will hold a spaghetti dinner benefit on Friday, March 28 beginning at 5 p.m.

It will be held at Liberty United Methodist Church in Clarksburg.

For $10 a ticket, you will receive spaghetti and meatballs, a salad, a dessert, and drink. There will be a 50/50 raffle, door prizes, and a silent auction.

The fundraisers don't stop there. The group will be hosting an Easter egg hunt on April 18 from 12-3 p.m. at the Harrison County Recreational Center.

Admission is $5 a per child and will include free pizza and soft drinks.

Kids are asked to bring their own basket.

For tickets to either event or additional information, contact Rebecca Ogden at 304-695-1392. All proceeds from both events will go to Ellie's family.
