Lady Firebirds raise thousands for Make-a-Wish Foundation

Feb 03 2014

Dressed for the frigid temperatures of late, the members of the Kellenberg volleyball program were pleasantly surprised on Sunday, February 2, by the tropical feel to their annual Super Bowl Splash in Long Beach for the Make-A-Wish Foundation! For the past four years, the Lady Firebirds have gathered together to plunge into the icy Atlantic in order to raise funds for this very worthy organization. Along with the balmy temps, the day was a success on other levels too, as the girls collected enough sponsors to mark the greatest donation total ever: $2,010! All funds generated by the Splash are put toward making dreams come true for children who suffer from debilitating diseases. Participating in an event like this warms the heart, regardless of the temperature outside!
