Bolivar High School Volleyball Raises Money for the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center

Posted 1/4/24

A silent auction held on October 3, along with a number of "give cancer the boot" opportunities at BHS volleyball and football games, yielded a grand total of $3,060.02 for the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center. In its sixth-year, the auction was held in the high school cafeteria prior to and during Bolivar's volleyball matches with Springfield Hillcrest, and many area merchants, attractions, and individuals provided a wide array of merchandise, passes, gift cards, baked goods, seasonal decorations, and much, much more for those in attendance to bid for. Since the event began in 2017 (no event was held in 2020), the grand total raised for the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center has been $11,237.40. All the proceeds from the money raised goes to help patients and their families with medical oncology visits, radiation visits, patient lunches, reduced lodging/transportation, nutritional supplements, hygiene kits, and much more. The entire volleyball program at Bolivar High School wishes to give a big thank you to all the individuals who helped on that busy night, and especially all the businesses and individuals who provided so generously the items for the auction.
