On Tuesday the Wolsey-Wessington School will be hosting a bake sale/auction benefit for the Jim and Lisa Tschetter family during their home volleyball match. Jim Tschetter has been diagnosed with West Nile and other health complications. All proceeds will go to him and his family.
Meanwhile, many others have also gotten involved in raising money for the Tschetter family. The Wolsey-Wessington cheerleading team hosted two cheer camps on Thursday night for preschool through second grade and third grade through sixth grade. Along with the bake sale and other fundraiders, the PTA will be setting up inflatables at the homecoming game. The volleyball players will also be selling “Dig Pink” shirts in which half of the proceeds will go to the Tschetter benefit. Also, all of the Tuesday night concessions will be donated to the family.
The Elks is working together with the Center for Independance, where Lisa Tschetter works, to plan a future baked potato feed.
At Wolsey-Wessington’s last home game, more than $850 was raised for the Tschetters through a bucket collection.
Additionally, Jim Tschetter’s oldest daughter has gone home from college to care for him. As his daughters have been “big volleyball players” at Wolsey-Wessington, the school is pleased to help support and give back to the Tschetter family. His youngest daughter is now a freshmen at Wolsey-Wessington School.
According to Wolsey-Wessington principal, Carol Rowen, the Tschetters are like family to Wolsey-Wessington.
“This is our way of giving back to them,” she said.For the complete article see the 10-13-2013 issue.
