Features Health & Wellness SCC clubs raise $2,850 to help 10-year-old

Southwestern Community College’s Medical Assisting and Culinary Arts clubs raised $2,850 in a spaghetti dinner benefit last month for 10-year-old Riley Schwalm, who has been diagnosed with leukemia.

The event, held at the Jackson County Resource Building in Webster, also included a silent auction, door prizes and live bluegrass music performed by The Bluegrass Misfits. All the proceeds were donated to the Schwalm family, as well as proceeds from the club’s Valentine Day raffle and bake sale.

As part of the benefit dinner, the students wanted to raise cancer awareness in the community.
