Students and staff members at Hazel Grove Elementary recently raised more than $1,200 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through a Pennies for Patients fund drive.
Through Pennies for Patients, schools raising more than $600 qualify for a reward from Olive Garden. The top class at Hazel Grove — Beth Abrams’ fifth graders — participated in a Hospitaliano! Lunch from Olive Garden in Lee’s Summit.
Hazel Grove’s Student Council sponsored the fund drive. Fifth-graders are pictured at the special lunch event.
