The C. Milton Wright High School Destination ImagiNation team used those imaginations effectively on Thursday for a fundraiser.

To help raise the $3,500 necessary to go to global finals in Knoxville, Tenn., the team hosted a dunking booth with nine teacher volunteers. After the lunch session, coach Patty Ganol said they had raised $350, but were planning on opening the dunking booth after school as well.

Ticket prices were $5 for three chances, $10 for seven chances or for $20 students could just walk up and hit the target. Six to seven kids chose the $20 option and one student even donated $50, Ganol said.

“It really brought the students and teachers together,” she said. “It was just a fun activity to kind of put them in a different playing field.”

The finals are scheduled for May 25 through 28, Ganol said, and C. Milton is joined by 10 other Harford County teams.
