The Sparwood Secondary School's Senior boys volleyball team hosted a fun, seasonal fundraiser this week creating quite a stir in the Greenwood Mall in Sparwood. With pumpkins donated by Overwaitea Foods the boys took to carving them for donations from the public. Sue Hanlon, mother of one of the athletes set up a booth and painted the faces of children while Halloween cupcakes and candies were also given away as part of the fundraising event. 

 Hanlon, who thought of the unique fundraising idea explained that she knew the team needed to raise money and working off the spooky season was something she thought would work well.

 Many goblins, vampires and other little monsters were seen running around the mall and many happy residents will now have their doorsteps adorned with beautifully carved pumpkins this Halloween.

The fundraiser raised the currently undefeated team $500. And with no losses to date they are hoping for a chance at this year's Kelowna provincials. The teams gives their thanks to Overwaitea Foods and the community for their support, and wishes everyone a safe and happy Halloween.
