Seventh Grade Student from Natick, Massachusetts, Raises $400 for Museum

Cate Mulholland, a seventh grade student at Wilson Middle School in Natick, Massachusetts, raised $400 at her school to benefit the Museum. On March 31st, she presented the check to Museum Director, Kenneth W. Rendell, and Museum Education Directors, Marshall Carter and Sue Wilkins. Also attending were Assistant Principal of Wilson Middle School, Susan Graf, Mulholland’s teacher, Rick Dumont, her parents, grandparents, and students who helped her raise the funds.

Mulholland was inspired in her fundraising by a school visit to the Museum. Afterwards, she organized a giving campaign at her school to benefit our activities. Students contributed $1 for the privilege of participating in Pajama Day and Hat Day.

We appreciate the support we receive from the community. This is the first time that a local student has raised funds for the Museum. Throughout the Museum there is evidence of the kind of can-do spirit which Mulholland and her classmates would have seen on their visit and which she subsequently displayed on behalf of the Museum.
