Monessen powderpuff game to benefit families of Altomore, Madzey
Tuesday, July 25, 2023 | 3:52 PM
Monessen’s senior class is looking to give back while remembering a friend and helping another.
The seniors will play a powderpuff football game at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Memorial Stadium.
Organizers hope the fundraiser will allow seniors to purchase a memorial bench for Amari Altomore, who was killed in a shooting last November, and to support his family. Altomore would have been a senior this year.
Funds also will assist the family of Mason Madzey, a student in the district who is stricken with brain cancer.
He is the son of Monessen elementary assistant principal Donald Madzey.
Game tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
There also will be a Chinese auction, a 50/50, and food and drinks.
Donations can be made via Venmo (@Dayna-Frolo), Paypal (@daynafrolo1) or Cash App ($Rayrae15).
