A fundraiser entitled "$Bench for Bucks$" will occur on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Practice Gym at Spring Grove High School.

Organizer Jean Happel invites everyone to the event, which is a fund-raiser for new weight-room equipment and will include a lifting contest.

Happel adds that every dollar raised counts towards a dollar-for-dollar match from the Spring Grove Athletic Boosters!

"Stop in and see the great show of strength by our students at 1 p.m. We are having a bench press competition with the kids at the school. They are going out and raising funds by getting pledges per bench press or just a flat donation.

"It is a way that the public can see what we do in the weight room and the equipment we use. The kids are always ready to one up each other, so it seemed a perfect fit!

"Everyone is invited and there will also be a spot for donations if you were not approached by one of the kids!"
