The girls volleyball teams at S.E. Gross Middle School in Brookfield and Hauser Junior High in Riverside raised $1,020 during their Block Out Cancer games in October. The seventh- and eighth-grade girls teams participated in fundraiser, which was held in conjunction with a regularly scheduled conference game between the two schools.

The teams raised the money through a combination of T-shirt sales, donations, candy sales and more. All of the money was sent to the Cancer Research Institute in New York. The event was organized by Hauser Junior High teacher and volleyball coach Felicia Burke.
