Stelly’s grads helping fellow students

A group of Stelly’s Secondary School graduates are giving a helping hand to some of their fellow students this weekend

A group of Stelly’s Secondary School graduates are giving a helping hand to some of their fellow students this weekend.

The grad executive recently organized a fundraising concert in order to help fellow grads who can’t afford to attend the graduation festivities in June.

“This concert will benefit those who are financially unable to attend grad or rent or purchase attire for the day,” explained Grade 12 student Connor Williamson.

“What we want to do is guarantee that every student has the opportunity to share such an amazing moment, while feeling and looking good.”

Williamson went on to explain the idea for a fundraising concert for their fellow grads came from a grad exec student named Armand Birk.

“Armand is a musically talented and devoted student to his school. After he came up with the idea he assigned roles for people and I chose the role of marketing the event,” said Williamson.

The concert, which takes place this Saturday, May 10 at Brentwood Hall (7082 Wallace Dr.) beginning at 6:30 p.m. will be headlined by local band Aivia with performances by Reverie and Papaya. Tickets are $10 at the door and there will be soft drinks and light food available.
