“Just Desserts” is a fundraising event put on by Helias Catholic High School’s show choir called Impact. This year’s event is Tuesday, November 24, starting at 6 p.m. in the old gym of Helias. All proceeds from the event go to the funding of the show choir.
“We are in the process of fundraising for new show choir risers,” said Mrs. Jana Fox, fourth-year show choir director.
“Just Desserts” is a commutative effort from all of the 27 participants. It is directed by Mrs. Fox. Ryan Pollock, a senior and show choir president, plays the electric guitar while show choir dancers put on a routine.
In addition to Impact premiering their 2015-2016 show, there will be entertainment featuring individuals and groups of students throughout the evening.
Tickets for this one night event are $5 for students, $10 for adults, or $100 for a reserved table. The ticket comes with a dessert and drink, as well as entertainment for the whole night.
In the past eight years of “Just Desserts,” the show choir has performed many shows.
Some of these included, “Dreams,” “Charlie Brown,” and “Romeo and Juliet.”
The theme this year is the Vietnam era, and will feature songs like “Beach Boys Medley.”
The evening will also include a silent auction filled with an array of unique gifts and a live dessert auction featuring gourmet homemade bakery items.
Impact show choir has put in a lot of time and effort to see this performance come to fruition. Countless hours of practice have been into the show.
“As my last year,” said Pollock, “I would like to say that I have enjoyed meeting so many different people, and partaking in the many competitions. I’ve also had a great time playing guitar.”
