Spanish Fork High School Students make wishes come true

r The Spanish Fork High School student council teamed up with Make-A-Wish Utah for the 8th annual “Homeless for A Night” event to raise money to grant wishes for local children with life-threatening conditions. Students stayed at the school from Friday, March 2, at 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, March 3. All money raised through this event and others will benefit Make-A-Wish Utah. Nearly 1,000 high school students suppored the event, and Spanish Fork High School has raised over $15,000 to donate to Make-A-Wish Utah.

Homeless for a night

“Homeless for a Night” is an all-night charity fundraiser aimed at raising awareness and money for Make-A-Wish. The ultimate goal is to grant the wish of our 7-year-old “wish kid” Kinley. Participants at “Homeless for a Night” paid a registration fee to take part in fun events such as a concert featuring Utah band Foreign Figures, a dance, basketball, video games, a movie and more. This event is meant to challenge the students physically by going without sleep while raising awareness and money for a good cause in a safe, secure, friendly environment.

“It’s been fun to see Homeless for a Night evolve into something bigger each year,” said Colby Roberts, SFHS student body officer in charge of service. “This means so much to us because we get to help non-profit organizations in our own fun way,” Roberts continues.

Kennedy Frame, student body president at SFHS said, “It’s time for the community to connect, but it’s also a time to party and have a blast. It’s really unifying and fun to watch everyone rally behind a local family and help their wish come true. The whole night brings a positive energy to our community.”

All the money raised through registration fees and corporate sponsors will be donated to Make-A-Wish Utah. Make-A-Wish is an organization that prides itself on giving hope and joy to children and families challenged by life-threatening conditions. The money raised at Homeless for a Night will help grant the wish of a 7-year-old Spanish Fork child with leukemia. Her wish is to go to Walt Disney World to meet all of the princesses and visit Harry Potter World in Florida.

In addition to Homeless for a Night, SFHS hosted a family movie night on February 28.
