The Nashville Hornettes hosted a Lupus Awareness Night last Thursday night, which raised $4,625.
The night was dedicated to NCHS senior Addie Povolish, who was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease the summer following her freshman year, according to information shared that evening.
The funds will be donated to the Lupus Foundation of America Heartland Chapter. The T-shirt graphic was designed by volleyball player Ruby Konkel.
