Ms. Garcia's advisory is sponsoring a school wide letter writing campaign called RALLY to raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Students from Ms. Garcia's advisory will be going into all advisories to educate their peers about the mission of St. Jude's. Then, the letter writing event will take place in all advisories on Thursday, December 20, 2007. We would also love to have parents involved in this campaign.
St. Jude's is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. At St. Jude's no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay.
Mark your calendars! The Garcia Advisory is also proud to sponsor a concert, "Rock-n-Roll Jam" that will take place on Friday, February 1, 2008 at 8:00 PM in the Concert Hall in Building 1P on the campus of College of Staten Island. Proceeds from this event will be donated to St. Judes and to our school's scholarship funds. Tickets are just $10 and will be on sale shortly. Bring your friends and family to a great performance and help the Garcia's raise money for St. Jude's.
If you are interested in learning how you can help, post here and we will respond or contact Ms. Garcia and one of her students will get back to you!
