Nicolet students to hold 2nd Annual Special Olympics
fundraiser March 4 at Hodag Lanes


Feb. 17, 2012
The Business Professionals of America (BPA) student club at Nicolet College will be holding a fundraiser for Special Olympics Sunday, March 4, from noon to 4 p.m. at Hodag Lanes in Rhinelander.

The event will include raffles and bowling for $5 per person with all of the money raised staying in the Special Olympics local region, which includes Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Lincoln and Langlade counties. Children 5 and younger can bowl for free.

BPA students are coordinating the event as part of a learning project that combines classroom instruction and community involvement.

"Service learning projects such as this are an important part of a Nicolet education," said Jolene Johnson Van Den Elzen, Business Technology instructor and BPA advisor. "It combines classroom learning with a very worthy community cause."

Monetary donations and donations of tax-deductible raffle items will also be accepted. For more information about the event, contact BPA members Vicki Hunter at (715) 499-1290 or Melody Smith at (715) 784-1247.
