The smell of buttery toasted bread filled the Forest Lane Apartments Community Center for the annual Grilled Cheese Hotline at Wright State University on Nov. 28.
The yearly fundraiser was organized by Wright State Miracle Makers, a division of The Children’s Miracle Network, which supports local children’s hospitals.
Students, faculty and staff could pick up or place delivery orders for $2 grilled cheese sandwiches and $1 cups of hot tomato soup.
“This is the most rewarding thing that I’ve been able to do,” said Ashley Greene, a junior majoring in organizational leadership who helped organize orders.
This year’s fundraiser sold 350 sandwiches and 275 cups of soup, raising over $1,000 for Dayton Children’s Hospital.
“To be able to make an impact in our own community is the best,” said Greene.
The Grilled Cheese Hotline fundraiser was a lead-up event to Raiderthon, the 12-hour dance marathon scheduled for March 23, 2024.
