Spaghetti feed for White Swan victims brings in thousands
WAPATO, Wash- Outpourings of support continue for the victim's of Saturday's fire in White Swan.
Tonight the Wapato girls and boys high school basketball teams held a spaghetti feed and concert. They also collected clothes and food for the victims. The players say they're used to coming together for a greater good.
"We had to use a lot of team work. We planned this out of nowhere on Saturday. We believe that White Swan they're a part of our community and we thought we'd give back and help them", says Sammi Blodgett a junior at Wapato High School and Varsity Basketball Player.
Over 300 people attended the event. They helped raise more than nine-thousand dollars so far. Further donations for the white swan victims can be made to the American Red Cross or to the Yakama Nation.
