CHICO, Calif.—Friday about 300 Chico High School students worked together to raise money for their sober grad night party.
Every year seniors tap into their creativity and pick up a hammer and some paint brushes to create wooden projects thanks to the donations from the community.
The finished products range anywhere from a birdhouse to a bench and even dog houses.
Those items then are sold at an auction where the community comes out and buys them.
All of the money that is raised goes toward supporting the high schools sober grad night that takes place on June 7th.
Debra Speer, the event organizer said, "It's just keeping them safe, and offering them another option to celebrate and be together that one last time as a class."
The auction will begin at 5:30 Monday at the Lincoln Center at Chico High School and will go until 8 p.m.
Organizers said in the past they’ve raised up to 15,000 dollars.
The communities support at the event is crucial to supporting the student’s efforts.
