As members of the CCSR, a group of four girls, Nevin Mustone, Ruby Andreasen, Rory McConnell, and Hayden Winter wanted to support their two friends at the Andrews w
ho suffer from Neurofibromatosis (NF). On Thursday, January 30th, the CCSR hosted a Bingo Night in the Andrews Middle School cafeteria to raise money and awareness for NF. Prizes for each Bingo round were donated by local businesses and Medford School Committee and City Council members. It was a huge success! Combined with sales from donated snacks, drinks, and pizza, the girls were able to raise $735 dollars! All of which will be donated to the Children’s Tumour Foundation. Additionally, another group of girls and members of CCSR, raffled off pet related toys and a fruit basket to raise money for the Northeast Animal Shelter. They were able to raise $230! We would like to thank the following businesses and members of the community who donated to this meaningful cause!
