School raises money for Make-A-Wish

EAST AURORA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Students and staff at Parkdale Elementary School in East Aurora are in Thursday’s student spotlight.

Last Friday, they hosted their annual carnival to help close out the school year. The net proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish in Western New York.

The dunk tank included district teachers who braved the water below for a good cause. Make-A-Wish representatives say the students and teachers raised more than $8,000 in just two hours.
