The Jacksonport Thanksgiving Day Parade and Benefit, hosted by Gibraltar GBAY/DECA and the Sevastopol Student Council, raised more than $1,095 for the DeMeuse family. The winning parade entry, the Cinealis family’s Minions of Thanksgiving, also re-gifted the $100 prize.

Sevastopol Student Council and Gibraltar DECA members presented a check to Maggie and Larry DeMeuse at Sevastopol on Dec. 4. In addition to helping the DeMeuse family, some of the funds from the bucket collection will purchase Christmas gifts and food for a local family in need through Feed My People/Clothe My People.

Sevastopol and Gibraltar students, along with their advisers David Philips and Mary Witteborg, thank all 58 businesses that donated to the raffle. Donations are still being accepted through Baylake Bank in care of the DeMeuse family. For more information, call Mary Witteborg at 920.421.0719.
