The Centre Future Leaders of America chapter still needs about $3,000 to fund the trip to the national convention for 12 qualifying students, according to sponsor Lisa Beye.
Members plan to have a baked potato bar at Chingawassa Days in Marion June 8. Any other donations would be appreciated, Beye said.
“It’s been incredible, the amount of money people has been willing to donate,” she said. “We are getting contributions every day, but we still have a little way to go.”
Any excess funds raised will go toward possible trips next spring.
