A couple of fundraisers will be held tonight at area high school sports events.

At Brighton, a collection will be taken for a school district in Pasadena Texas, an area that has seen more than 50 inches of rain since Friday. The money will be collected between the first and second quarters, with all proceeds going to the Pasadena district. Donations can also be made at canisters at the concession stands and ticket windows.

At Howell, the Howell and Brighton volleyball teams will team up tonight to raise money for two charities dedicated to helping veterans here in Michigan. The varsity match will start at 5:30, and Howell students who attend the volleyball game can show their ticket stubs for free admission to the Highlanders’ football home opener, which starts at 7. Williams says the money raised will go to Stiggy’s Dogs, which trains support dogs for military personnel, and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. (TR)
