The 14th annual By Kids for Kids Musical Benefit Concert took place on Friday, February 28 and raised $2277.50 ($600 more than last year) for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. Students and faculty showcased their talent as 27 different acts with performers ranging from pre-kindergargen through ninth grade took the stage. We are accepting orders for the DVD of the event until May 15.
The Hole in the Wall Camp, located in Ashford, CT, was founded by Paul Newman in 1988 and named for the secret hiding place of outlaws in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. All proceeds raised at By Kids for Kids Musical Benefit Concert go toward sending a sick child with cancer to camp for one week. Since this fundraiser began, we have helped send nine seriously ill children to one week of camp for free. The cost of the camp is approximately $2500 per week.
Many thanks go out to all who participated, including the Community Service students who helped with the event, all the music teachers, the administration, faculty, and staff who assisted throughout the evening. Many thanks to all of the bakers and to those who helped sell the goodies that night.
Our thanks for all your support, Sheryl Knapp and Cecilia Marshall Community Service Advisors
