On Saturday, BHS seniors that are a part of the Project Celebration organization held a fundraising bake sale outside of the Belton Wal-Mart.
They had sausage wraps and hot dogs, many Easter-themed baked goods and various desserts such as cobbler, cookies, Rice Krispie treats and brownies.
Project Celebration is an all night event after graduation to keep graduates safe and have a fun time without the presence of drugs and alcohol. The organization was started in 1989 by concerned parents and teachers and has since then grew with each year. As of right now, 65 percent of the graduating class will be attending.
After graduation the students will be taken to Fort Hood by bus, and the fun will begin.
Some of the activities of the night include bull riding, jousting, basketball, galaxy bowling, roller skating, racquet ball and many more.
At 5 a.m., participants will be taken back to the Methodist Church in Belton and a hot breakfast will be ready for them to enjoy.
So far, Project Celebration has raised more than $13,000 and is getting closer to their goal of $18,000.
On April 21, Project Celebration will host a big garage sale at the Belton Masonic Lodge.
Donations are welcome and highly appreciated. The organization will be having a spaghetti dinner soon after, although a specific day will be given at a later date.
