Student-Led Fundraisers: Fiesta Mexicana; Dance for the World; H.O.P.E. Clothing Drive
D-E Upper School students are involved in a variety of worthwhile fundraisers this month! Fiesta Mexicana (Thursday, May 10); a "Dance for the World" to benefit Unicef Fiji, and a spring clean-out clothing drive all are underway now, and open to participation by all three divisions of the School.
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with your family and friends at the annual Fiesta Mexicana, an event designed to support teacher training and educaitonal outreach initiatives in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Fiesta will be held on Thursday, May 10, beginning at 6:00 PM, in the Wharton Lessin Dining Hall in the ground floor of the Klein Campus Center. Enjoy performances by a traditional mariachi band, readings from D-E Spanish language students, and, of course, authentic Mexican cuisine. Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for adults at the door, and there will also be a raffle for special gift items representative of Mexican culture. Questions about the Fiesta can be directed by Email to Jayna Waldman '19 at firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds benefit ELA; to learn more visit www.elaofnj.org.
Support Ben Zhu '19 in his "Dance for the World". Ben has created a GoFundMe website: https://www.gofundme.com/dance-for-the-world and has offered his exceptional (and very popular) dance talents to raise funds for Unicef Fiji. Ben explains: "I have teamed up with the UNICEF club at Dwight-Englewood School to start this GoFundMe in order to raise money for children in Fiji. For each $1,000 raised, I will release a dance tutorial video on Youtube teaching waving, popping, tutting, basic footwork, and more. Hopefully, we can all come together and help the Fijian children. If you are one of my 37,000 followers, I want to truly thank you for both supporting me as a dancer and this fundraiser." Questions? Email Ben Zhu at: email@example.com
