Fans at the T.C. Williams basketball games this weekend will be waving spirit towels as part of a fundraiser for Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The Titans Care towels are being sold Friday and Saturday night at the T.C. Williams home games for $5. It’s part of a fundraiser for the Newtown, Conn. school’s memorial scholarship fund hosted by the University of Connecticut.
The fund was created to help give the gift of higher education to siblings of the children killed at the school last month and to the children of the staff members who were killed.
Community partner The Motley Fool paid $1,600 for the 2,000 towels. T.C. Williams graphic teacher Bobby Trout had his students print them in class, according to T.C. Williams teacher and project coordinator MaryEllen McCormick.
McCormick’s Leadership Class students designed the towels.
The T.C. Williams High School Leadership Class applied through the UCONN fund to conduct this fundraiser.
To date, the Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship fund has more than $700,000 raised and pledged.
