MARYMOUNT STUDENT PRESIDENT ORGANIZES FUNDRAISER FOR CHILDREN’S WISH FOUNDATION

MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 12  2008-  Sharna Dey, the president of the Marymount Academy Student Body, is organizing a musical fundraiser for the  Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada which has as its  main goal  to grant children living with high-risk life threatening illnesses, the opportunity to fulfill their most heartfelt wish. It will take place  on Friday, February 22  at Marymount  (5100 Cote St Luc Road).

The first show is from 6 p.m. to 7:30  p.m. and the second  from 8 p.m. to   9:30 p.m. Admission will be   free of charge for the children who are ill.  Everyone else will be asked to donate $8. The show will include dances, songs, and performances from the Indian culture so that the children feel as if they have been transported to India.   Marymount staff and students will perform. “I hope that the children that are sick get the opportunity to come and enjoy the day planned out for them,” she said. “This is my dream.”
