DuBois, PA – Because the DuBois High School has been closed since Thursday for mold concerns and remains closed today, DuBois students had to get creative about how they would compete for Homecoming King and Queen and fundraise for Make-A-Wish.

Usually the students would compete in challenges within the school vote for each other with monetary donations, but now they’re relying on you!

The National Honor Society and homecoming couples are hitting the streets and visiting local businesses to ask for donations. The team that raises the most money will be crowned as King and Queen.

All money goes towards our local Make-A-Wish chapter, which grants magical wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions, allowing them to forget about their worries and just be a kid.

Lucas Knarr and Heather Gilga came to our station yesterday. Listen to their full interview.

They’re hoping to raise enough money to grant two wishes for local kids, which would equal around $8,800.

Only monetary donations are being accepted this year because of the time constraints.

Please make a cash or check donation by Sept. 26.
