2014/15 Winner - Connecticut

Amity Regional High School

Amity Regional High School selected The Herren Project: Project Purple Initiative. This charity focuses on preventing substance abuse, specifically in young people. Since the Herren Project was founded by Chris Herren, a former NBA basketball player whose promising career was derailed by substance abuse, Amity Regional fundraising events had a basketball theme to them, including:

  • "March Madness" event, where students raised money to sponsor Amity teachers participating in basketball contests.

Optimum Community congratulates the Connecticut 2014-15 Charity Champions grand prize winner, Amity Regional High School.
