Cash After Chaos Fundraiser

Lake Geneva Middle Schools SOUL Club hosted their Cash After Chaos fundraiser from March 21 through March 24. The Cash After Chaos funds will be donated to the Western Kentucky Tornado Relief program. The SOUL club set a goal of $700 for their fundraiser, with hopes of having each student and staff member donate at least one dollar. 

 

On day one of the fundraiser, the Lake Geneva Middle School surpassed its building-wide goal of $700, with a total of $821.37 as of Monday morning! 

 

Two sixth grade students were large contributors to surpassing the fundraising goal. Michael Braun and Josiah Dame raised $429.12 for the fundraiser. Without prompting from their parents or the school, the boys decided to do a bake sale. They met every day at home after school and baked on their own for 4 afternoons. Josiah had won a $25 gift card during a contest at youth group and opted to use that to pay for the baking supplies. Michael and Josiah then had a bake sale outside downtown Lake Geneva on March 19th and 20th. Even with the rain, the community was extremely generous, helping the boys successfully raise the funds.

 

“We are so thankful for the support of all of our LGMS families. The goal of this fundraiser was to remind our middle school students that giving money is not just about making a donation but making a difference,” said Jennifer Kinney, Lake Geneva Middle School SOUL Club Advisor. Kinney went on to say, “We are so proud of Michael and Josiah. They took the initiative to go above and beyond and truly helped to make a difference.”

 

Over the course of the entire week, the Cash After Chaos fundraiser raised a total of $1362.87.
