PARRSBORO - The community came on down to support the Parrsboro Regional High School Students’ Council here Monday night, in perhaps its most fun and unique fundraiser.
The students hosted their own Price is Right show on the stage in the school’s gymnasium, where members of the audience, which included parents, students, teachers and other community residents, were chosen randomly to participate in popular games from the long-running TV game show.
Students’ council president Chris Colpitts said the idea for the event came from Philip Carter, a teacher at the school and faculty advisor to the students’ council. Carter said he had read about a similar event held in Guysborough.
“Normally, you’re always doing fundraisers where you’re kind of taking from the community, asking for donations,” said Carter.
“We thought this was a good opportunity to give something back to some people and at least make it entertaining. We thought we’d do it as kitschy, tacky and cardboard box-y as possible.”
