Three Pittsford Sutherland High School students raised more than $1,000 for a charity donation at their sweet 16 birthday party.
Abbey Leonardi, Maggie Doran and Maddie Thomas all turned 16 in May. When they celebrated their birthdays at Max Rochester in the High Falls District on Saturday they asked the 85 guests to make a donation to Harbor House of Rochester instead of giving them presents.
So far they’ve raised $1,475, but all the cards haven’t been opened, said Doran.
“We didn’t really need presents. We have been given so much. We just wanted to give back to Harbor House,” she said.
Harbor House, located at 89 Rossiter Road provides temporary accommodations and other assistance to patients and their families during major medical events and emergencies.
The girls volunteer at Harbor House last year cleaning rooms and working a fundraising event.
