Help the Homeless Dodgeball Tournament
Posted on 11/18/2018
James Madison Middle School students holding the trophy after winning the tournamentThe Community supported our homeless students in a very big way.  Hundreds turned out for the 1st annual Help the Homeless Dodgeball Tournament at Patrick Henry High School. 

26 teams competed on four courts for more than three hours.  When it was all said and done, "The Average Joes" of James Madison Middle School were the winning team. 

The entire event raised more than $10,000 for the Help the Homeless Fund.  Staff members from John P. Fishwick raised more than $1,000.  The school that raised the most money collectively was Woodrow Wilson Middle.

Thank you to Erika Hackworth of Woodrow Wilson Middle.  She came up with the idea and organized the event.  The Tournament was sponsored by Woodrow Wilson's Junior National Honor Society as well as the STAR Council.

We greatly appreciate all the volunteers who made this event run successfully.  Thank you to SodexoMAGIC for donating all the food.  100% of the proceeds from admissions and concessions benefit the Help the Homeless Fund.
