A Foodbank Fundraiser
On Wednesday April 15th, The Visual Arts Department will be collaborating with the with Music and Drama departments to raise money for the Food bank in Squamish.
The purpose of the evening is not only to raise money for the food bank but to showcase and celebrate Howe Sound Secondary student artwork, music and theatre and to bring awareness of social issues in Squamish and beyond.
The public is invited to come and watch Visual Art students create visual art work, purchase some art, listen to talented Music students perform and watch a short play by the Drama students.
Students have been working hard on creating bowls for the “Empty Bowls” part of the evening. For $15, guests select a bowl, fill it with soup provided by the Vancouver Community College Culinary Program at HSS and open their hearts to all of those who don’t have enough food to fill their bowls.
There will also be tote bags, lovingly decorated by Squamish Elementary K/1 students for sale for $10. The public will also have a chance to create and donate! For $2, guests will be able to paint a square on a large canvas. The goal is to fill each square on the canvas with the result being a “community painted quilt.” NO ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Doors open at 5:30 and the event goes until 8:00.
Entry to the event is by donation. Non-perishable food items are also welcome. If you, or your student, have any questions or concerns, please contact HSS at 604-892-5261.
Enjoy your Spring Break.
