Meridian, Miss. A major fundraising event came to life on Saturday to help a local organization make a big purchase.

Area kids had a great time participating in "Catch the Bus" in Meridian's Highland Park. The even was organized to help raise $70,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi in order to be able to purchase a new bus. Local high school senior Madeline Griffin came up with the idea.

"I volunteered for many years at the Boys and Girls Club and this is a way I could give back," Griffin explains. "I asked Mr. Ricky Hood what are some things I could do and he mentioned to me one of their main goals was to raise money for a new bus, so I knew I had to make it my mission to do so."

The Boys and Girls Club is located on 45th Avenue in Meridian.
