Loveland students did not raise goal of $10K for Ronald McDonald House – they exceeded it!
Posted Tuesday, October 22, 2013
The one and only Ronald McDonald appeared on the field at Tiger Stadium Friday, Oct. 18 as a way to say thank you to the Tiger Family. Student representatives from Loveland High School (LHS), Loveland Middle School and Loveland Intermediate School joined the beloved character on the field for a special half-time presentation complete with a lantern lighting ceremony.
The students joined forces to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. The goal was to collect $10,000 – the amount needed to sponsor a family living in the Cincinnati house for one full year. Students exceeded the goal, collecting a total of $11,145.28.
“I’m so grateful and humbled to have been a part of something so amazing,” said LHS Freshman Katie McElveen, the primary student organizer. “The Loveland students and faculty embraced this fundraiser and cause, fueling the entire week with a passion to serve others; I think we all felt so proud of our school and community. Friday night was just another great night to be a Tiger!”
