Sponsored by the Northview High School Girls' Varsity Club, senior members of the Northview football team took part in a homecoming activity last week to benefit a local charity.

This year was the first for the fundraising event.

The players competed against each other in the "Penny King" contest.

According to Girls' Varsity Club sponsor Bethany Jones, the players made containers and collected money throughout Homecoming Week.

The player who collected the most money earned the title of "Penny King."

Senior Eric Timberlake collected the most money to earn the crown.

All the proceeds collected through the fundraiser were to go to the charity of choice for the winner. Timberlake chose the Clay County Humane Shelter.

On Monday, the school donated $368.33 to the shelter.
