Port Jefferson Station, NY - March 3, 2014 - For the past 27 years, students of Comsewogue High School have showcased their eclectic talents with the community at “A Night for Jason,” slated for Friday, March 21, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. A diverse mix of talents - from pop songs, dance acts, martial arts displays and some good-old fashioned rock-n-roll guitar playing - have graced the stage and this year is no exception.
"A Night for Jason" is a student-run variety show produced in honor of Jason Mariano, a child in the school district who succumbed to leukemia in 1987. The money raised from the event benefits Friends of Karen, a tri-state children’s charity with an office in Port Jefferson, that offers emotional, financial and advocacy support for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in order to keep them stable, functioning and able to cope.
"This is always such a great way to keep our students involved in caring for our community,” said Ms. Dana Urbinati, a teacher at the High School and coordinator of the event. "Along with the talents and energy of everyone involved, we want people to know that the funds raised are going to help some very special families in our communities.”
Tickets for this one-night, popular, perennial event can be purchased at the Comsewogue High School Main Office (474-8179) or at the door on March 21st.
