(Olive Branch, MS) Students at Overpark Elementary School worked hard to raise more than $105,000 for St. Jude over the last few years.

Students at Overpark have participated in the St. Jude Math-A-Thon annually since the school opened in 2005.

This year, students raised and donated over $19,000.

The school celebrated reaching the $100,000 milestone with a Hollywood Glam Party.

Students, teachers, and administrators dressed to impress, and several community celebrities visited the school.
