DECA raises nearly $4,000 for muscular dystrophy
Camas High School DECA held the MDA Golf Tournament at Camas Meadows Golf Course last week and raised $3,837.
The goal of the project was to raise both awareness and funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Chapter members from Camas DECA worked to register foursomes for the tournament. In addition, local businesses were contacted for sponsorships and donations for the raffle held at the tournament.
All proceeds from the tournament/project went directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The MDA Golf Tournament event is a part of a DECA Community Service Chapter Project, headed by students Amanda Shi and Andrew Carson.
The project will consist of two other parts: an MDA Hop-a-Thon targeted towards raising awareness with elementary age students and a Mr./Mrs. Camas competition for MDA that will encourage high school students to raise money and awareness.
