1,500 Students Party for Fundraising

r The 9th annual Homeless for a Night, also known as HFAN, was hosted by the Spanish Fork High School Student Council to raise money for a Make-A-Wish child. This year’s event was for Lillie, a five-year-old with cancer whose wish is to see Disneyland.

The event was held Friday night, March 8, from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. High school students from all over the valley were there to participate. Admission was $20 for an advanced purchase ticket and $25 at the door. The feature event of the evening was a hypnotist, followed by a live music dance in the Spanish Fork High School gymnasium. Elsewhere in the building were video games, board games, a climbing wall and food.

By seven o’clock the bleachers were full, and people were beginning to sit on the floor awaiting comedy hypnotist Hypno Hick, otherwise known as Shaun D. Christensen. He had 24 chairs arranged in an arc and asked for volunteers. For an hour and a half, he entertained the crowd by asking the hypnotized students to do various acts such as fall asleep, drive a fast car, lay on the floor and dance. It was clean and hilarious comedy and the crowd wanted more. After almost two hours the program came to an end with a brief discussion on how to always feel confident in yourself. The gym floor was cleared, the bleachers retracted, the music began, and the lights went low. The students were having a great time and lot of calories were burned in the next four hours.

A school official said about 1,500 turned out for the night of fun and fundraising for Lillie’s trip to Disneyland.
