PARADISE, Calif. (KGO) -- Students at Paradise High School, who were affected by the devastating and deadly Camp Fire, hope a baseball hat signed by President Donald Trump will help them hold graduation ceremonies on their campus.

The hat signed by Trump was auctioned off for $23,000.

Congressman Doug LaMalfa asked the president to sign it, following the State of the Union address.

Officials say they're confident the work will be completed in time for the June graduation.
