While the annual Pittsford soccer rivalry was settled on the pitch, boosters worked to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House.
The Pittsford Sutherland boys varsity soccer team took on cross town rival Mendon Saturday and a fundraiser was held during the game.
The Ronald McDonald house was chosen because of what it's done for the Sutherland head coach.
"The Sutherland varsity soccer coach's daughter had been ill since birth and he spent an number of nights at Ronald McDonald houses across the country," said Melissa Henderson, Varsity Soccer Co-Manager. "So we had a nice personal connection to it and felt that was a nice natural fit for the team."
The boosters raised money by collecting donations at the game and from the sales from the concession stand.
Organizers hope the fundraiser will be an annual event.
