Teachers Snap Up Record $10,000 at 2019 Dash for CashThirty-three Wisconsin educators participated in the Teachers Dash for Cash at the Green Bay Gamblers hockey game on January 19. The event, which North Shore Bank has sponsored since 2013, raised $14,358 for high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools in the Green Bay region.
As in years past, the Dash for Cash took place between the game’s first and second periods. Ten thousand dollars — the most cash in the event’s history — waited at center ice. When a horn sounded and district manager Kerri Collins, pictured above, gave the signal, the teachers rushed forward to grab as much of it as they could. Their schools got to keep all the money, along with a portion of the night’s ticket sales.

“It was a wonderful evening. Many teachers expressed their appreciation to me as we were counting the $10,000 in crumpled up $1 bills,” Kerri said. “The highest amount collected by one of the teachers was $502. He was thrilled! The night ended in overtime with a shootout, and the Gamblers won the game!”
