Parker School students raised funds for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts at a Feb. 13 LoveFest, a benefit concert, art show and silent auction in the Parker School Theatre. The evening event featured showcase performances by the school’s songwriting, dance and drama classes.
In addition to the performance, LoveFest is a week-long fundraising effort, the brainchild of Nathalie Whitfield, a 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 Adviser Gillian Culff. “We have raised money each year for different charities through spirited food sales at lunch (such as pink cupcakes, etc.), LoveFest T-shirt sales and a benefit concert.
This year’s proceeds have totaled nearly $1,000. T-shirt sales bring in the most money. This year’s shirt was designed by junior class president Grant Nair and printed by Scott Nelson of Art Brothers in Waimea.
