Dancing with the High Point Stars

DWTHPS 2015DSC_2239Saturday  February 23, 2019

10 Super Stars performed for the community to raise awareness and funds for CIS and the students they serve.

 

Thank you to all our fabulous sponsors.  We enjoyed a Sponsors’ Hour with all of you one hour before the event.

Thank you dancers Cheridan Abeles, Brandon Blair, Dr. Adrienne Cowan, Susan Fagg, Maddie Gardner, Alexis King, Timothy Peoples, Tommy Reid, Charlie Sheffield, and Ashley C. Tillery, sponsors and attendees for helping raise $80,000.

 

Our goal is to continue providing programs and services to students who attend some of High Point’s schools that have the highest free and/or reduced lunch percentages, a federal indicator of poverty.   Now, more than ever, it is crucial that we help students realize the importance of a high school diploma as the foundation for future endeavors, but we cannot do it without community support. This fundraising event helps ensure the continuing legacy of student success in our community that began under the leadership of founder, William “Bill” Horney Jr.

Lovely Raiderettes of T. Wingate High are always a highlight at the event.
