HGMS Fine Arts Department Raises money for "Haileigh's Hope"
The Bulldog Dancers, Grove Singers, and Jazz Band will be putting on our spring benefit concert "A Night at the Movies" on April 22nd at 7pm. Tickets are $4.00. This concert will  benefit Haileigh's Hope - for the Duke Cancer Institute. Haileigh is one of our 6-4 students and is a Bulldog Dancer.

Here is the information about Haileigh's Hope from her website. "Haileigh's Hope" is that one day soon, there will be a cure for brain tumors and cancer. Haileigh was diagnosed with a tectal glioma in 2009 at the age of 7. She had a third ventriculostomy to relieve the pressure/fluid on her brain caused by the tumor. We have been very blessed that Haileigh's 8 mm tumor continues to remain benign and isn't changing. As we have been exposed to the world of pediatric brain tumors because of Haileigh, we want to do what we can to give back. We've formed "Haileigh's Hope" for the past 3 years and will continue to be hopeful until a cure is found.

Haileigh's team will run in the Angels Among Us 5K on April 26th. We want to send her team off with a HUGE check from her HGMS family.
