Varsity Club to Sponsor Fund Raiser

By Bryan Buckius –

When tragedy strikes, how will you react? Here at Penn Manor some students took the initiative to take charge and help out a fellow classmate.

Penn Manor’s Varsity Club is in charge of a fundraiser to help support a family in the Penn Manor community dealing with a recent, unexpected tragedy. The club will have a table set up at various sporting events over the course of the next month.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to help out a family in need,” said Varsity Club secretary Dan Elliot.
