Students raise more than $1,500 for charity
Parker high school students held a benefit concert, art show and silent auction on Valentine’s Day in the Parker School Theatre to raise funds for Typhoon Haiyan Relief and Child and Family Services of Hawaii for LoveFest. The evening event featured showcase performances by student musicians, singers, dancers and actors.
LoveFest is a weeklong fundraising effort, the brainchild of Nathalie Whitfield, graduate of the class of 2011 and former student council vice president. “She came up with the idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day for an entire week, as a week of love, reaching out to our own community and the larger world,” said Parker English teacher and student council advisor Gillian Culff. “We have raised money each year for different charities through spirited food sales at lunch, LoveFest T-shirt sales and a benefit concert.
LoveFest 2014 was the most successful yet, raising more than $1,500.
