Faculty from William Fleming at the Chili night fundraiser, sitting at a table.The latest Help the Homeless Fundraiser was a delicious one!  The STAR Council held a Chili Night before the Patrick Henry/William Fleming Boys Basketball Game.  The STAR Council stands for Students Take Action in Roanoke.  It is made up of Patrick Henry and William Fleming High School students.  The council's goal is to help our homeless students.

For just $5, patrons were treated to chili, a potato, and a drink at Patrick Henry High School.  Thanks to SodexoMAGIC and its vendors, 100% of the proceeds benefit the Help the Homeless Fund.  Culinary Arts students from ROTEC cooked and prepared the food.  Members of STAR Council volunteered throughout the event.  Shout out to Ms. Doherty of Patrick Henry and Ms. Morgan of William Fleming for organizing the student help.

Students from Patrick Henry and William Fleming High School held a friendly competition to see if each school could raise $1,000.  Both schools were successful.  Principal Jablonski and Principal Freeman awarded their students by taking a pie in the face during half-time at the basketball game.
