'Dodgeball' tourney March 15 raises funds for 549 Foundation

The Perham High School Student Council and the National Honor Society are planning a dodgeball tourney as a fundraiser for the 549 Family Foundation.

The event is slated for March 15, at Prairie Wind Middle School.

The 549 Foundation is serving as the "fiscal agent" for the "More Than Nothing" campaign, which is raising funds to help support school programs in the wake of the failed levy referendum last fall.

"It would really be cool to get some adult teams to represent the different groups from around the area, maybe different employers," said Jo Strege, director of the 549 Family Foundation. "This is a golden opportunity to get together, forget about our troubles and raise some cane for the school."
