If you’ve been watching the news unfold about the disastrous earthquake in Haiti and want to take action to help, then you should be a part of ‘ROCK THE CAUSE!’ You may be asking yourself, what is ‘Rock the Cause’? It’s a local Battle of the Bands hosted by a group of SLS seniors to aid the efforts of Haiti. Many of the band members and volunteers participating are current SLS students. There will be five bands competing, including: The Dandy Lions, At Day’s End, Natural Causes, and MORE!! This event will take place on Wednesday, June 9th from 6:30pm to 10:00pm at the Castle Shannon Fire Hall on Route 88. Tickets are $10.00. ‘Rock the Cause’ t-shirts and wristbands are also being sold! If you’d like to purchase a ticket, shirt, wristband, or be a ‘Rock the Cause’ sponsor, contact Katie Shanahan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to Catholic Charity, Moving with the Spirit: Mission Haiti! MWTS has an orphanage in Haiti that is currently over capacity with earthquake orphans and is struggling to provide for the many people staying there due to the recent devastation.
