This year over 2200 Schools were nominated but only 25 were chosen!
In order to participate each student must raise over $6000. During the last few months the students have raised $58,000 and only need to rise $500 more dollars to have their costumes and props sent overseas. Any money over the $500 will be used to help students with the purchasing of meals and show tickets! Thanks for your help!
