Players and coaches at Lewiston-Porter middle and high schools worked together to raise money for their schools while also collecting donations for Niagara Hospice. Players from the winter sports teams took part in Niagara Hospice's "The Mighty Niagara" Discount Card fundraiser. The card offers discounts at dozens of local restaurants and businesses and sells for $15. With more than 250 cards sold, the students raised $2,460 for their school; an additional $1,230 was donated to Niagara Hospice.
The modified basketball team, coached by Mark Waple, led the school in sales by selling more than 150 cards. Coaches Jason Danielewicz, Dave Sicoli, Tom Panale, Kevin Jaruszewski, Scott Mueller and their players also sold cards, contributing to the success of the fundraiser.
