Howell Sets Record With $27,039 Raised For Charity

Posted: Updated:
HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - This year's Senior Survivor charity fundraiser at Howell High School raised the most money since it started in 2008.

The
event by 14 seniors is based on the TV reality show "Survivor." This year the competition raised $27,039 for the Rainbow Connection, which grants wishes of children with life-threatening or terminal illnesses.

Competitors are selected in a random drawing and must carry at least a 2.0 grade-point average. Each competitor wore a specially designed T-shirt and sold copies to augment his or her fundraising. Zach Noonan was the final survivor.

The event was started to create a memorial scholarship for Mackenzie Watts, a Howell student athlete who died in 2005. It has since expanded to support other charities.
