Parents and friends donate at the event, and money goes to a charity of the students’ choice. This year, the students chose to donate to the statue.
Students dressed in costume visited the March City Council meeting on Monday to present the check. In a statement written by the students, they expressed the hope that others would follow their lead and donate for the statue that all can enjoy.
Supporters say raising the $100,000 to $150,000 necessary to erect the statue will not happen in time for the 150-year celebration in July, but they will continue to raise funds until the goal is met.
