NAPLES, Fla. - A marketing class took over a pizzeria to raise money to help a classmate living with muscular dystrophy.

Nearly 2 dozen students of the Sports and Entertainment Marketing Academy at Gulf Coast High School showed for a class project at Il Primo Pizza and Wings in Naples.

The group learned how to run a business, from making pizzas to marketing, as well as raise money for MDA to help a fellow classmate.

They sold large pizza's for $15 each with part of the proceeds going towards the charity.

The group of freshmen raied $524 dollars during the project and are planning another fundraiser for later in the spring.
