This Saturday La Cañada High School’s Club ROAR (Reach Out and React) will be holding its first music night fundraiser. The doors of the Community Center of La Cañada will open to the public at 7 p.m. for an evening of student-made music and baked goods.
For an entrance fee of only $5, locals can support the club and help benefit the Glendale Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter.
Incoming LCHS seniors Adelina Kim and Kelly Ha, Club ROAR co-president and activities director respectively, came together to coordinate this event after working with the club for nearly two years.
The club’s objective to “reach out and react” to animals in need was sparked by Kim’s friend. Her sadness at the loss of a pet drove the students to take action.
After contacting both the Pasadena and Glendale Humane Societies, ROAR decided to help out at Glendale.
“Glendale is a no-kill zone,” Kim said, “and Pasadena is much bigger so more clubs help out, but no clubs help out the Glendale Humane Society.”
Until now, that is. Though the group has done fundraisers and other activities to benefit the Glendale Humane Society in the past, Kim and Ha are hopeful that this event will be their most successful yet.
“If we can reach our goal, then we will probably do it annually,” Kim said.
Between offering music that ranges from classical to modern and working towards a good cause, this event is sure to satisfy all audiences.
Tickets are available at the door. Your attendance could feed a puppy.
