Fun, food, friends and football were the themes of the evening last Saturday as the entire Fairfax community came together to celebrate our graduating football seniors, as well as raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Vermont foundation.
Service is a regular component of our community-wide school events and is a priority to our student body and athletic department. Last Saturday’s Make-A-Wish fundraiser was the brainchild of BFA Fairfax Sophomores Natalie Bates and Kiana Labor, in coordination with Make-A-Wish participant, BFA first-grader Asher Lawrence.
Through admission costs, a 50/50 raffle, and generous donations on behalf of Mt. Abraham Football and Boosters, the evening raised nearly $1400.00 for this important foundation!
Contributing to the excitement of the evening was the strength and skill demonstrated by our Fairfax/Lamoille Co-op football team in a 38-6 victory over Mt. Abraham.
The win earned the Bullets a #3 ranking in Division 3 and secured a home playoff game against Springfield High School on Saturday, October 27 at 1pm.
We need to extend a huge thank you to Brock’s Heating, Air Conditioning, and Gas Services, who generously donated the lights to make football Senior Night that much more special, as well as all the fans, students, and community members who contributed to making our entire weekend of games under the lights a resounding success.
