FCA fundraiser pits teachers against students
POLSON — Polson High School students challenged teachers and coaches in a volleyball match and a basketball game on March 22, all for a good cause.
The games, silent auction and spaghetti dinner raised money for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a PHS student group.
“Local businesses were very generous (with donations for the silent auction),” said Mark Rochin, organizer and huddle leader for FCA.
Parents and community members agreed, as they enjoyed dinner out and fun at the Polson Middle School, as well as perusing silent auction items, everything from gift certificates to drills and autographed celebrity photos.
Jim Harrod made two big roasters of spaghetti sauce for the dinner, and Country Pasta donated 40 pounds of pasta.
The money goes to send PHS students to FCA athletic camps at Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, the last week of June, Rochin said.
Rochin said five or six FCA members out of the approximately 17 members want to attend the camp, but they have to work at fundraising events.
The group has also purchased coaches’ Bibles for all PHS coaches.
