South Sioux City, Nebraska (KTIV) -- The local community showed up in force to support a mentoring program, which provides encouragement to students in elementary through high school.
The event, Hearts For Teammates Social And Silent Auction, was held on Friday night at the Covington Golf Course in South Sioux City, Nebraska. It featured food, music, fun and a silent auction.
The proceeds will help fund the costs to run the local program.
Schools across Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota are involved with Teammates.
The foundation, which teams up a student with an adult mentor, was started by former Nebraska Football Coach Tom Osborne, and his wife, Nancy.
