Mascot makeover: NBHS Senior Raises $4K for New Costume

High school senior Alyssa E. collected more than $4,000 through various fundraising efforts for a brand new North Babylon Bulldog mascot costume.

Alyssa, a student in the school’s Career Development Program, has been the mascot at various academic and athletic events at and around the school. As the costume became worn out from years of use, she committed herself to raising funds for new Bulldog garb. Some of her fundraising efforts included making appearances at local events and taking mascot photos with patrons as a ‘thank you’ for their donations.     

Prior to the end of the school year, Alyssa used the funds to purchase the new costume, and presented it at the district’s June Board of Education meeting.
