Bedford Candies Fundraisers for Four Diamonds


Caroline Nagle

The mini-THON committee is conducting a candy sale sponsored by Bedford Candies.

Despite this unprecedented time of pandemic and lockdowns, kids are still fighting cancer daily; therefore, the goal of raising money for the Four Diamonds Foundation is as important as ever.

However, the Bellwood-Antis mini-THON committee cannot have a THON event this year due to social distancing guidelines. In the past, the event was used to raise almost $80,000 for the Four Diamonds.

That has left the group scrambling to raise money for childhood cancer, and it has come up with several fundraisers to meet the need. One that is going on now is a candy sale.

With Easter coming up next month, students thought that doing a Bedford Candies fundraiser would be a great way to raise money for Four Diamonds. On the order form, you will find an assortment of chocolates, popcorn, fudge, nuts, candy, and even dog treats for your furry friends.

The fundraiser runs from now until March 15, when the money is due. The pick up date is March 29, just in time for Easter, which is on April 4.

Anyone who wants to participate in this fundraiser can pick up a paper from Mr. McNaul.

Keep an eye out for other fundraisers in the near future to support this worthy cause.
