As chapter heads of The Power of Blue (POB), Jessie Pearson and Ava Allen, Bolles students, held a successful spike ball tournament to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. With the help of 15 local high school POB ambassadors, the group raised over $11k for the cause.

“I chose the Ronald McDonald House because I enjoyed my time with the Ronald McDonald Club at Bolles these past few years,” Pearson said.

Power of Blue is an organization started by a Philadelphia teen at the height of the pandemic when she blue tie-dyed cotton face masks and sold them online to raise funds for local charitable causes. Soon after, the Power of Blue Ambassador Program was launched, recruiting teens throughout the country who wanted to get involved in their communities by volunteering, fundraising, and creating awareness of people in need.

“We quickly sold out all 32 teams,” Pearson said. The teams were encouraged to show up in costumes and enjoy the concessions and music while cheering for the others. Several representatives from the Ronald McDonald House were present. In the end, the Bolles swim duo of Tucker Peterson and Seth Tolentino were the winners.
