Beginning on Monday, October 20 and ending on Saturday, October 25, Lansdale Catholic High School students will learn what really matters by adopting a child through the Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley Chapter of Kids for Wish Kids program.
In addition to raising $5,500, which will be attributed to a Wish through the Kids for Wish Kids program, Lansdale Catholic will also be making our local Wish Child Kevin’s dream of playing football come true this Friday night, October 24 at their Homecoming Game vs Neumann-Goretti High School. The game will be held at Wissahickon High School Stadium, 521 Houston Road, Ambler and begin at 7 pm. Kevin will be presented with memorabilia donated by both teams, and our trainers, NovaCare. He will be a part of the coin toss, stand on the sidelines with the Lansdale Catholic team during the game and finally have the opportunity to take part as a football player when he runs a play at the end of the first quarter.
Lansdale Catholic students will select a Homecoming King and Queen based partly on how much money candidates raise for the Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley Chapter. Ten members of the homecoming court will spend their homecoming week asking their friends and family to support and vote for them through monetary donations to Make-A-Wish.
A King and Queen will be selected based 50% on popular vote and 50% on total funds raised. The fundraising goal is $5,500. The community can make a donation to support Lansdale Catholic’s fundraising efforts at http://friends.wish.org/051-000/page/Jennifer-Huber/Lansdale-Catholic-High-School-Homecoming.htm.
