SCUGOG: Port Perry High School will continue its long-time tradition of Cafe Night for charity this month, with proceeds going to support the treatment costs of four-year-old Olivia Worr.
The event, which occurs at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, Nov. 19, allows students to audition for an ‘open mic night’ style performance event, and proceeds from the $5 tickets will be given to the Worr family.
“Usually, our donation goes to the Canadian Cancer Society or another group,” said Mr. Rory Snider-McGrath, head of Port Perry H.S. music department. “We’re keeping it local this time, and all of the kids wanted to do what they could to support this little girl.”
Mr. Snider-McGrath added that the group of organizers hope to surpass last month’s donation of almost $500, and are also hoping for an astounding turn-out.
Tickets for the event are $5 and will be available at the door of the school, further information can be obtained by calling the school at 905-985-7337, or by contacting a music student.
