Dixie Hollins Ladies Basketball Players Help at St. Petersburg Elks Event

1224 Lady Rebels

On Saturday, March 10, Bonnie Barnes held her last event as St. Petersburg Exalted Ruler, the country and western dinner and dance. The Dixie Hollins High School ladies’ junior and varsity basketball team members were the volunteer servers for this event and were accompanied by their coaches, Kelly Jones and Diane Baer. After the dinner, attendees of the event raised $411 as a donation to the Dixie Hollins Lady Rebels basketball teams. Coach Baer said that the money raised will be used for much-needed new uniforms for next year’s season. In addition to earning money for their basketball teams, the young ladies were also earning their voluntary community service requirement for graduation.
