The 2019 FBLA Baskets for Babies was one for the books! Hosted during the boys’ basketball game against Hazen on Friday, January 18th, the fundraiser exceeded the chapter’s expectations and grew tremendously from the previous years’.
For The Record
This year’s event was a whole group effort, making the organizing, planning, and preparing a breeze with the assistance of FBLA Advisor’s, Ms. Resner and Mrs. Ebert. The chapter reintroduced the Cutest Baby Contest, and it was a hit! Jaden Smith, son of Shalee and Jeff Smith, was named the Cutest Baby of 2019. Along with the Cutest Baby Contest, purple Baskets for Babies t-shirts, 50/50 raffle tickets and silent auction items were sold. Through this event, the Hettinger FBLA chapter raised $1,212 for the March of Dimes whose mission is to provide education about premature births as well as support families in NICU’s around the country. This meaningful event would not have been possible without the support from our local businesses and community.
