WELLINGTON, Kan. - Eight local personalities and business owners have put their fantasy football skills on the line over the course of the past 14 weeks with the goal of helping the community.

The Wellington Charity Fantasy Football League playoffs begin with week 15 of the NFL football season. Now in it's second year, the league works much like a “celebrity game show” on television. Eight team managers, each representing a local charity have all agreed to donate $100 to the charity of the league champion.

The playoffs are set with the league's top four teams vying for what will end up being an $800 donation to one of their respective charities. The champion will be crowned on Dec. 28; a donation ceremony will take place soon after.

The eight participants and their charities are (in order of current standings):

  1. Nate Jones, Studio 55/Sumner Comm. – Sumner County Community Drug Action Team

  2. Tytus Cornejo, Cornejo/Day Funeral Home – Wellington Forward

  3. Michelle Crittenden, Michelle's Encore Dance Studio – Wellington Food Bank
