Hobart football raises money, awareness for Happiness House

More news about: Hobart

The Hobart football team, led by junior offensive lineman Jarrid Blades, continued its tradition of community involvement during the 2010 season with the Tackles and Touchdowns fundraiser. The Statesmen raised $2,500 for Happiness House with their efforts during a 38-13 win over WPI.

Donors either pledged $1 for every tackle Hobart made and $7 for every touchdown scored by the Statesmen or donated a flat rate to Happiness House.

In addition to 15 local businesses, private donors and fans at the game participated in the event. New York State Senator Mike Nozzolio, Hobart Student Government and William Smith Congress were major contributors to the fundraiser.

During the week leading up to the game, Hobart football players visited Happiness House to spend time with the children there, giving them replica footballs donated by the Hobart Athletic Department. The Statesmen recently returned to Happiness House with autographed pictures from the game provided by Kevin Colton.

Happiness House branches span across Ontario, Seneca, Yates, and Wayne Counties. Established in 1969, the nonprofit educational, health, and human service agency has developed programs and services for children and adults that address developmental disabilities and syndromes. On average, the organization serves 1,000 families each year.
