Students Raise $1,200 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW)- A fundraiser done in April by the Sparta High School Key Club has raised money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

Members of the service organization at Sparta High School presented a check to a representative from CMNH Tuesday in Sparta.  $1,200 was raised during a dessert tasting and gift basket raffle. 

Heather Gillis, CMNH Program Manager, says 100% of the proceeds will help local children and provide health care to families.  "I'm very proud of them and they should be very proud of themselves.  The community should be really proud too to know that these students are doing great things.  They are going to go off and do more amazing great things," Gillis stated.

Sophie Schmitz, recent graduate of Sparta High School, stated, "It feel great.  The fact that some of these families are in our community really feels like we are helping out.  The fact that we are making a difference in so many families feels really good." 

This is the first fundraising event hosted by the Key Club to help CMNH and they hope to make it an annual event.
