A total of $1,092 was raised for a Catholic school in Honduras by the youngsters at Holy Name Catholic School in Escanaba when they held an Entrepreneur Day event. All of the classes made something to sell and each of them had one or two tables of their wares set up in the school gymnasium. All of the students were given the opportunity to move around the gym buying and selling their goods. Checking out the wallets and bags made with duct tape are: from left, Nicholas Whitmer, John Hurthibise, Abe Perryman, Tyler Soderman, and Zachary Boucher. Other items available included magnets, trail mix, goofy goo, bracelets, bookmarks, smoothies, and ice cream sundaes. A few classes sold tattoos and did face painting. One group sold a chance at shooting a basketball and gave out a treat if the shooter got it in the hoop.
