Students will compete against faculty in a volleyball game on Oct. 20 at West Hartford’s Hall High School.
By Ronni Newton
The competition should be fierce as the Hall High School students take on faculty members in a volleyball game on Friday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m. in the gym, all in the name of charity.
West Hartford resident Charlie Sullivan, who coached the U.S. team to a bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics, will provide coaching expertise along with Hall boys varsity coach Bing Liu.
More than just an athletic contest, the volleyball game is a fundraiser, with all money collected being donated to support hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, Florida, and Texas as well as earthquake victims in Mexico.
Tickets are $5 at the door, but will be discounted to $4 for any attendee who brings a canned good or child’s Halloween costume.
The non-perishable food will be donated to the West Hartford Food Pantry, while the Halloween costumes will be donated to Breakthrough Magnet North K-8 School in Hartford.
