The Bethany Bronchos and Kingfisher Yellowjackets recently faced off in the 10th annual The Children’s Center Bowl (TCC Bowl) to raise funds for The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in Bethany.
Bethany Public Schools participated in fundraising activities leading up to the TCC Bowl such as penny wars, hat day, crazy hair day and jeans day for teachers. “The Children’s Center Bowl is a special tradition for the students and staff of Bethany Public Schools. It provides an opportunity for our students to raise money to help kids and families in need,” said Drew Eichelberger, superintendent, Bethany Public Schools.
Bethany Public Schools presented the Hospital with a check at the football game totaling $6,429.69.
“We were excited to break the $100,000 mark for the amount of money we have raised for The Children’s Center since the inception of this annual event. We feel blessed to be a partner with such an amazing organization,” said Eichelberger.
“We are thankful for the students and staff at Bethany Public Schools as they continuously support our patients,” said Albert Gray, chief executive officer of The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital. “This year was the 10th anniversary of the TCC Bowl and adding to the excitement, Bethany Public School surpassed the $100,000 mark – raising over $100,000 in 10 years! What a remarkable demonstration of the devotion these schools have for our Hospital and the patients we serve. We are grateful for all of their efforts.”
