On Wed­nes­day, the TISS Grade 10 In­tro­duc­tion to Busi­ness class, taught by Larry Henry, handed over $1,400 to On­tario SPCA-Leeds and Grenville, rep­re­sented by Mar­i­anne Car­lyle (shown here with dog Smitty). The money was raised through the school’s an­nual ball hockey tour­na­ment run by the class. Usu­ally the event, which was held in Novem­ber, is put on by older busi­ness stu­dents at the school, but this year the Grade 10s did it and put up im­pres­sive num­bers. Funds were raised through reg­is­tra­tion costs and the can­teen setup at the event. Help­ing out the money to­tal was the fact that Kathy MacDon­ald, a grand­mother of a stu­dent in the busi­ness class, do­nated ham­burg­ers for the BBQ. The do­nated money all stays at the Leeds and Grenville an­i­mal cen­tre, said Car­lyle. The tour­na­ment also brought in a car full of do­nated food that was given to the lo­cal food bank.
