My Travel Story

by: Alexis LaCross Start Date: Oct 9, 2016 - End Date: Feb 5, 2017
On April 26, 2017, Alexis will travel to Toronto, Canada with Valley Regional High School's music program. Her love of music and singing will be explored and developed on this trip. This opportunity allows her the experience of performing at the highest level possible, internationally, and to experience another country, as well. 

On Wednesday, April 26 at about 4 am, she will board a coach bus with other members of the music program and will travel 11 hours to Toronto. At 8:30 pm, they'll do a final run through of their music program. The following day, they'll perform in the Heritage Music Festival at York University, visit the Ontario Science Centre AND go on a Toronto Dinner Cruise. On Saturday, the musicians will go on a Niagara Falls Hornblower Cruise at 8:30 am and then return for the awards ceremony and Medieval Times. Finally, on Sunday the 30th, they'll visit the CN Tower and will depart for home at 11 am, arriving back at Valley at 10 pm and...yes...back to school bright and early the next day! 

This is a trip of a lifetime for our young music lover. This girl hears a song and can play it on the piano and sing it beautifully. She's taken voice lessons and, as time goes on, she continues to develop her passion for music. She has high hopes and big dreams. This would be such a wonderful experience for her.

The cost of the trip is $810, plus food and cell phone money ($150 more, approximately). We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to offset the costs and allow Alexis to go on this amazing trip while we, as a family, transition through some financially difficult times. 

Thanks so much for considering a donation!! The smile that Alexis will have as she recounts her experiences the day after the trip and the memories she will carry with her for the rest of her life will be so worth it. 

Thank you.
