A fundraiser to benefit Charlie Gottlob, son of Lincoln Elementary School Principal Andy Gottlob, was unique Monday, in that it was conceived and organized by the students themselves.

“This event was not my idea,” music instructor Karen Jesseph told the large crowd packed into the Lincoln Elementary School gymnasium. “It came from your children.”

The fundraiser included performances from the Reba Davis Drumming Circle — the student percussion group directed by Jesseph — as well as a bake sale.
