Happy December first everyone! We gobbled up the days of November pretty quickly but it was a long, hard-fought month for the men who grew their facial hair in the name of prostate cancer awareness. Without further delay, let’s go to the final standing for No Shave November 2017!
Finishing in 4th...Mr. Despier pulled through raising over a hundred dollars this year. Thank you Mr. Despier! Coming in third...Senior Mike O’Toole had a great last week showing raising over a hundred and fifty dollars. Well done Mike! What he doesn’t know is that he only missed second place by a mere ten dollars as our second place finisher, 8th grader Eoin Millerick had a last minute donation to finish with one hundred sixty three dollars. Very impressive Eoin! That brings us to this year's new champion...Mr. Campagna is the victor destroying his competition while raising three hundred and sixty five dollars! Mr. Campagna, you are the man!
A big thank you to all of the students, staff, and families that donated to this cause and a big, big thank you to the four participants in this years fundraiser. Together, we raised almost eight hundred dollars which will be donated to the Massachusetts Prostate Cancer Coalition.
