Blue-Yellow Challenge

Blue wins again! It was a tight race, but the blue team came away with it. 

On Great Day, color teams could earn a point when someone made a gift, and earned bonus points by attending virtual events and in mini-challenges on social media throughout the day.

The Latest on the Great Day Blog

Yesterday certainly was one great day!
The Penn Charter community came together to make an incredible collective impact on the school. We are still working on the final tallies, but we know that more than 550 donors raised over $660,000 for Penn Charter, the largest totals ever in our six-year history of Great Day.
The Blue-Yellow Challenge was especially tight this year, but the blue team came out on top in the end with 315 points to 297 for yellow.
