What's it like to get covered in ketchup and mustard? Longfellow Elementary raffle nets $16K
Annual fundraiser led to student celebration on Friday
MITCHELL — Students raised $16,000 by selling raffle tickets to support Longfellow Elementary School in Mitchell.
The record raffle led to students celebrating Friday by "hot-dogging" teachers and administration.
If an individual class sold more than $800 in raffle tickets, they got to choose from a list of teachers who volunteered to be covered in ketchup, mustard, relish and onions. Eight classes hit the $800 mark.
"Our kids did amazing but we couldn’t have accomplished this fundraiser without the support of the Mitchell community and the Longfellow families that assisted their children with their raffle sales," said Principal Lisa Heckenlaible. "We are so proud to be Longfellow Lions and a part of the Mitchell community."
