Pinnacle Canyon Academy students and faculty were all set to raise funds to help pay for a class field trip to Washington D.C. But after hearing about the story of a fellow student in need, everyone involved with the festival looked for a way to help out. And they did.

Pinnacle Canyon Academy held a Fall Festival event on Friday to help benefit seventh grade student Megan Weaver, who is currently dealing with a medical condition.

The festival raised about $3,000, according to PCA Principal Mark Stuckenschneider. All of the proceeds from the event will go to help cover the medical costs for Weaver and her family.

The event brought out over 500 students, parents, faculty and staff for an evening of fun activities including bingo games, a giant blow up slide, cake walk and more. Those who attended could also get handmade crafts made by students, get pictures taken at the silly photo booth, get their face painted and create their own unique buttons.

Food was also served as people could enjoy hot dogs, chips and drinks in the cafeteria.

Many faculty and staff volunteered their time to help set up and coordinate the event, including Malarie Matsuda, a second grade teacher, and Kerry Welch, PCA school social worker, said Stuckenschneider.

The event was originally going to be a fundraiser to help raise money for a fifth grade class field trip but those plans changed when the school first heard about Weaver's medical condition about four months ago, Stuckenschneider said.

"The fundraiser worked out really well," he said. "It was definitely a success."

PCA is still currently accepting donations for Weaver, Stuckenschneider said. Those who are looking to make a donation can call the school office at (435) 613-8102.
