EMERSON, N.J. -- At the beginning of her second semester at Penn State, 19-year-old Madison Holleran, a soccer and track star from Allendale, took her life, much to the shock and horror of her family and the community.
To help raise awareness about teen suicide, her family began a foundation, and Emerson High School's Key Club is hosting a trivia night on Wednesday, Feb. 22, to raise funds for it -- and the public is invited.
The competition will feature teams of 4-6 people, and will include pizza, snacks and beverages. The cost is $5 per participant, and proceeds will go to the Madison Holleran Foundation.
ESPN did an in-depth article about Holleran's story, including a telling video, in 2015. You can view it here.

The event will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Emerson Junior-Senior High School cafeteria. The school is located at 131 Main St.
