Student Barristers Bowl Turns Dream Into a Reality
February 24, 2010

BarristersBowlVI.jpg

The Purple Team won this year's game with a score of 26-14 over the Gold team, but no one walked away unhappy at the annual Barristers Bowl football game held recently.

An annual event organized and run by law students, the goal is to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year, Ian, a five-year-old boy from Gonzales who is recovering from leukemia, had a wish to travel to Walt Disney World to meet Mickey Mouse. The Barristers Bowl football team will make Ian’s dream become a reality.

The Barristers Bowl VI raised well over $12,000 that included donations, t-shirt sales, raffles and two auctions. For the second year in a row, a dinner for four and Natural Light with Vice Chancellor Cheney Joseph was the highest selling auction item. With Make-A-Wish being the first priority for money, any excess money will be donated to another cause. Last year, the Ryan LoProto Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Law Center was the recipient of excess funds.
