Video Game Tourney Aids South Hills School Alumnus

The South Hills School of Business and Technology’s Entrepreneur Club recently sponsored a video game tournament that raised more than $1,100 for South Hills’ 2008 alumnus Mike Keller. Keller recently underwent a double lung transplant.

Keller and his wife, Lisa, made a visit to the fundraiser. He reported that doctors are pleased with his progress and he’s back on track enjoying life in moderation until he is fully healed. He also expressed appreciation for the support he has received from his extended family at South Hills School.

Serafino Mazza, business student and lead organizer of the event, said it was a rewarding learning experience to be involved in making a positive effect on someone else’s life. Mazza thanked the Entrepreneur Club team for putting the event together and gave a shout out to Wegman’s and South Hills’ Snack-Shack, which made contributions toward the night’s success.

A group of 20 gamers battled through rounds of Halo, Rocket League and Super Smash Bros. First-place winner of the tournament was South Hills School videographer Dan Lesher. Second place went to 2016 alumnus Marshall Barto and third place went to current student and accounting major Val Sukovatitsyn.

A comedy show fundraiser also is being planned to support Keller. The event, which is open to the public, will take place Friday, Feb. 17, at Wise Crackers Comedy Club, Celebration Hall, State College. The cost of $20 includes the night’s entertainment and a hot appetizer buffet. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 9 p.m.

For tickets or more information, call Mike Gates or Sue Vidmar at (814) 234-7755.
