EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Evansville students had a huge celebration today to end their fall fundraiser.

The Plaza Park International Prep Academy held an assembly Friday morning announcing their top sellers and present a $1,00 check to the big winner, 13-year-old Patrick Kelley.

The fundraiser is sponsored by Paragon Promotions. Students sold different boxes of items to help raise money for their school.

Paragon's owner Tom Stone says it's something the students always enjoy.

"We got the students interested enough to take these items home where they're going to get about half of that money to come right back to the students for all of their needs and that's a big deal," Stone said.

Paragon promotions sponsors the fall fundraiser every year and pays for all of the prizes.

This year, the school raised about seven thousands dollars.
