In past fundraisers for the foundation, Pope students raised raised $4,000 in 2006 and $6,800 in 2007, so the class’s 2008 goal was to raise $10,000. The Greyhounds went above and beyond their goal, raising over $23, 480 by selling black Rally t-shirts for a football game “black out,” donating money during lunch, and collecting donations prior to the football game vs. Kell.
