Mendota students raising money for Relay event

Posted by wlpo on April 9, 2011

Formal was the look at Mendota High School but it wasn’t for prom.  Students held a “Dress Up For the Cure” day Friday, in which students donated to Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley.

Other students sold candy bars, breast cancer bracelets and baked goods.  A group of fifth graders at Northbrook have also raised money by selling hand-made hair bows.

The Relay isn’t until July 9th at Mendota Lake Park but youth teams are planning more fundraisers.  Several high school students have organized a junior high dance for Friday, May 13th to be held at Northbrook School in Mendota.

At least one adult is needed as a captain for any youth teams.   You can learn about the event by visiting
