Students, family, and friends raised money in a unique way with their first annual mattress fundraiser.

John dailey “Honestly, I thought it was a crazy idea when I heard of a mattress fundraiser. The name of the company is Custom Fundraising solutions and they’re all over the country. They do this for nonprofit organizations and they come up and set up an entire showroom of beds and they give, on average, $90-$100 back for every bed sold.

Organizers say all the money raised will go directly to the Generals’ Band.
