Raising funds to stop bullying

The seeing eye

ANTI-BULLYING GROUP HOSTS EVENT: National Stop Bullying will host a community fundraiser 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Tipsy Bull, 1931 W. Market St., Warren. The anti-bullying group is raising funds for an education initiative to help stop bullying. The group also is hoping to raise money in honor of Mary Eva Howard, a student at Cheektowga Central High School in New York who spent time trying to teach others about being kind. Howard went to several communities with her anti-bullying message, including here in the Valley. Howard died after she was hit by a vehicle while walking in Erie, Pa. Members of her family and others have formed a group to raise money in her name to help others attend college. Scholarships will be presented at the event Saturday to students from Warren, Niles and Youngstown. The group has an agreement with Eastern Gateway Community College.
