Students raise money for Disney trip

| October 24, 2013

WARSAW – The River View band and choir students are heading to Disney in June to perform at the most magical place on earth. To help offset some of the cost of the trip, the River View Music Boosters is sponsoring a Movie Character Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 8 – 11 a.m. in the River View High School cafeteria. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children 10 years and younger. Anyone attending the event is welcome to dress up as their favorite character.

“The main focus of the breakfast is when children and their families come to the breakfast, they will get to see Mickey and Cinderella and have their pictures taken,” said Dawn Anglin, choir director at River View.

After breakfast, the kids are invited to join in the fun at the children’s table where they can color pictures, have their face painted, and get temporary tattoos.

Disney also donated four hopper passes worth $500 to be auctioned off during a silent auction. Local merchants helped to sponsor the food for the breakfast, which will include pancakes, sausage, milk, juice, and coffee.

The River View choir is also having a Pop’s Concert, “Magical Memories” on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the River View High School Auditorium. Tickets are $3 and can be purchased from a River View music student or by contacting Angie Speicher at 824-3522.

The theme for the concert is all Disney with 30 to 40 Disney songs performed. The main focus will be on The Lion King, Aladdin, Snow White, Pinocchio, and Mary Poppins. Mickey and Minnie will start the concert with the Mickey Mouse Club theme song.

“We’ve never done this before and the kids are really excited,” said Anglin. “The thing I really like about the show is there are songs from vintage Disney teamed up with things very recent. There’s something for everyone.”

The art club has also contributed their talents for the stage designs.

“I’m very thankful for Mr. Wagner and the art club for participating,” said Anglin.

Before the concert, there will be a chicken dinner at 5 p.m. Dinner tickets are $6 and $4 for children 10 and under.

Both the band and choir are traveling to Disney this summer and will be performing at different locations throughout the attraction. The choir will be singing in downtown Disney on a stage on the lake designed especially for choirs to perform, and the band will be marching in the Magic Kingdom parade.
