The costumes were excellent and everyone had a lot of fun. The event kicked off in a bracket style seeding pitting 10 teams against one other.  Some teams barely had a chance with the balls flying through the air sometimes at high speeds. Senior, Makenna Janes, did a great job as an MC while Senior Courtney Thim and Junior Katie Taran were referees. Senior Morgan Hasty kept track of the playoff brackets. After a couple hours of back and forth and a lot of laughs, the teams ended with donating $900 to Save the Children to help the children in Yemen. The war in Yemen has hit children hard. Facing violence and with many forced to flee their homes, Yemen’s children are struggling in the face of a national economic crisis, widespread malnutrition and the grave threat of cholera and other life-threatening diseases. Senior Macey White brought information about this crisis to the attention of the Interact Club and members worked together to find a way to raise money and help.  The community support meant the world to these caring students. Mark your calendar for another Dodgeball Tournament for charity next March!
