COLUMBIA — Senior girls at Hickman High School will stage the school’s annual homecoming charity fair Wednesday.

Three weeks prior to homecoming, queen candidates selected a charity. Since then, they have collected donations for their causes from classmates, family and the community. 

Wednesday's fair is an addition to the candidates' earlier fundraising efforts.

Jeffrey Devero, student government sponsor for Hickman, said students will be able to purchase food donated by local businesses and restaurants from each candidate at the fair. 

Some of the charities chosen this year are the Joplin Missouri Disaster Relief Fund, Central Missouri Humane Society and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Devero said.

During the winter, Hickman will hold its annual court-warming, in which king candidates will participate in similar fundraising efforts.

Last year, queen candidates raised more than $18,000, said Devero. Hickman’s homecoming queen will be announced at the school's football game Friday night during halftime.
