Donations from Alcoa-CAK game help Butterfly Fund, KARM | Families
Alcoa is the winner of this year's Ultimate Pillow Fight between the two schools.
Each year, students from both Alcoa and CAK collect bed pillows for Knox Area Rescue Ministries. The school with the most donations wins bragging rights, and both receive scholarships from Back Yard Burgers.
High school football officials also donated their own paychecks to help fight childhood cancer.
The Blount County Football Officials Association presented the Butterfly Fund with a $2,500 check during halftime at the Alcoa/CAK game.
The officials raised the money by donating one of their paycheck from a game, and by taking up donations from fans during a few games this season.
The Butterfly Fund supports research, treatment and services dedicated to the defeat of childhood cancers.
