Pennies for Patients fundraiser completed

From February 19 up until March 7, NHS helped support Pennies for Patients,
an organization benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

BSM has had two penny wars in the past, the last one being almost two years
ago which had little success. However, NHS feels like their third war has
been far more successful than their last attempt. ³ The seniors and the
faculty really stepped up to the plate. The seniors and faculty almost
doubled their contributions from the first week, ² said chair Larisa Clark
and co-chair Nathalie Lawyer.

To ensure the success of the project, the chairs and co-chairs of the penny
war decorated the penny-collection jugs with class colors. ³The junior one
kicks butt. It¹s got really cool stickers on it,² said co-chair Caroline
Hendrickson.

At the end of the fundraiser, BSM helped raise a total of $818.01.
