Led by Team Captain Meghan Pulley, kids fromStagelight Performing Arts and Stagelight Family Productions have “teamed” together to raise money for CHOC Hospital. Using the upcoming CHOC Walk as a goal to help raise the funds, Team Stagelight members and their families have hosted Lemonade Stands, Bake Sales, e-mail and Facebook outreach campaigns, and other creative methods to raise $5467 as of October 5, 2015.
Of the fundraising efforts, Team Captain Pulley says,“This is a truly great community of people, and I’m so proud of the kids for playing such a huge role in our efforts with their lemonade stands, garage sales, shoe and book sales, etc… You all should be so proud and I feel blessed to be in your company.”
Additional thanks to Akiko Clodt, who as a designer for Asics shoes, donated over 30 pairs of shoes to be sold for $10 each. All proceeds were donated to CHOC as a part of this effort.
On Sunday, October 11, at least 58 Stagelight participants and their family members will be walking the 5K CHOC Walk through the Disneyland Resort, wearing their Team Stagelight t-shirts, displaying pride over their efforts of fundraising a substantial amount of money (that will be used to keep kids in our community healthy!), and demonstrating the benefits of being involved, giving back, and positively impacting our community.
It’s not too late to join the team or donate. Click here for more information.
