Makeup for Miracles fundraiser a success

Kylie McLain, one of the chairmen for the Makeup for Miracles Fundraiser puts the makeup on Wayne Brackenbury, the MLS-Mohall faculty member who received the most money in his jar to be declared the winner of the makeover. The other chairman of the event was Kasie Evanger, not pictured.

MLS Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently held “Makeup for Miracles” to raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. From Wednesday, January 14th to Tuesday, February 3rd, staff and students in grades 7 through 12 were asked to bring money to put in the participating staff members’ jars. The staff member with the greatest amount at the end of the fundraiser would be “dressed up” on Wednesday, February 11th.

A Miracle Minute was also held on Monday, February 9th between the third and fourth quarters of the MLS varsity boys’ basketball game against Kenmare.

The staff members brought in a total of $172.71, and the Miracle Minute brought in $192.18. Grand total collected for the Children’s Miracle Network was $364.89. Due to donation shortage during contest, the goals were changed from $500.00, $1,000.00, $1,500.00, and $2,500.00 to $50.00, $100.00, $150.00, and $250.00. This was done with prior approval of all participating staff members.

The winning staff member with the most money collected was Mr. Wayne Brackenbury who brought in a total of $83.72. On Wednesday, February 11th, Mr. Brackenbury was “dressed up” in a wig, dress, and makeup for the rest of the day. Students and staff had fun watching him teach and walk the halls. A celebration assembly was held in the MLS gym on February 11th. The totals of the teachers were read and a short video of a Children’s Miracle Network child was shown.

The Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals across North America. Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America has formed a partnership with Children’s Miracle Network for 2014-2015. The money raised by North Dakota Chapters will be donated to the only Miracle Network Hospital in North Dakota - Sanford Children’s Hospital in Fargo.

Students responsible for organizing this project were Kasie Evanger and Kylie McLain. Their Advisor is Valerie Aho. The girls recently received a silver placing in the Chapter Service Display - CMN - senior division category at the District 2 FCCLA meeting in Harvey. They will now advance to state with the project.
