More than 200 people were at the Indian Taco Feed fundraiser Sunday at High Plains Community Center.
It was to help fund travel costs for the HOSA members who qualified for the upcoming nationals in Florida.
The three-hour fundraiser in Killdeer was focused on the program for future health care professionals.
The Indian Taco Feed raised more more than $5,000 unofficially, including the auction and meal.
The local HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) chapter earned a trip to the national conference, according to Cherie Roshau, the adviser for the group of junior high and high school students.
The HOSA nationals will be held at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, starting June 19 and running to June 22, Roshau said.
“We took 13 kids to the state competition and we are taking 13 to the nationals. So 100 percent of our students qualified for the nationals,” Roshau explained.
She added that the performance by her Killdeer students was the best the local HOSA has done.
The state leadership conference was held in Jamestown in early March.
The 13 Killdeer students who earned the trip to Orlando are: Brendon Gibson, Tyra Dahlen, Cheyanne Gallant, Maddy Mills, Hatten Kleeman, Abby Sadowsky, Kaitlyn Warren, Chelsey Morlock, Molly Nies, Garrett Calkins, Ainsley Hayden, Gracie Doe and Madison Wilhelm.
