On Dec. 7 Student Council (StuCo) and both boys and girls Varsity basketball teams will be collaborating to raise money for people with autism. This event, “Aves with Autism” is going to go on all day.

“I’m excited about working to spread the word about autism. It’s a disease that affects a lot of people and it’s important to work to help it in any possible way,” said Paige Domhoff, 12, committee member.

The basketball teams will be playing a series of games against Walnut Hills. In order to raise money StuCo is going create baskets and raffle them off. There will also be t-shirts for sale.

“The committee so far is contacting local businesses for donations for the raffle baskets,” said Amy Bitzer, 10, committee head.

This is the first year for this event and StuCo is hoping for a big turn out.

“I think this is a great idea for a fundraiser that helps and supports autism because it’s a new type of fundraiser and the basketball games always seem to have a good turn out,” said Mackenzie McMullen, 10.
