HTMS charity game raises $6,700
By Gary Lloyd
The Hewitt-Trussville Middle School charity basketball game Feb. 19 raised $6,700 for the National Brain Tumor Society.
The school selected this charity because it has recently had a student treated, a faculty member being treated and several family members of faculty diagnosed with brain tumors.
Through donations at the game, the school also raised more than $200 for the Children’s Miracle Network.
In the eight years the middle school has held the charity basketball game, it has now raised nearly $44,000. Past games have benefited Harry S. Truman Middle School, Susan B. Komen Fund, Big Oak Ranch, Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Amelia Center and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
