Charity Week this year will be held February 12th-16th
Charity Week this year will be held February 12th-16th. There are a variety of ways for students to become involved during the week and contribute to the charity selected by Student Congress.
This year, Student Congress has selected Detroit Street Care for Charity Week 2018. The mission of Detroit Street Care is to provide quality medical care to the underserved homeless population of Detroit. The organization bridges the gap between the homeless population and the medical community by building relationships with patients to gain their trust by offering respect and companionship. Detroit Street Care is affiliated with Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Our goal this year is $100,000!
Save money while still helping a great cause by purchasing a Charity Week Passport — $85! Available on PaySchools. **PLEASE PUT SHIRT SIZE IN MEMO LINE. ORDER BY FEB. 1, 2018, TO GUARANTEE SHIRT SIZE.

2018 Charity Week Dance—Semi-Formal
This year’s Charity Dance is scheduled for Friday, February 16, from 7-10 p.m. Tickets for the dance are on sale on Payschools for $10 each. Students can pick up their tickets during all three lunches from February 14-16. THERE ARE NO CASH SALES AND NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. All students who are bringing a guest from another school (except Troy High and IA) must fill out a guest application, which is available in the AP office, and should be turned into the ticket table at lunch by Friday, February 16. If you have questions, please see Mr. Turner in the AP Office. **If you are purchasing a Charity Week Passport, you receive a dance ticket and do not need to purchase a ticket.
Most individual tickets to Charity Week events are $5, but the best way to make sure that your Athens student doesn’t miss a minute of the fun is to purchase a passport in advance for only $85 through PaySchools! The passport guarantees admission to all of these events plus a t-shirt, dance ticket, raffle tickets, plus special door prizes throughout the week.
This week is truly one of the most exciting and fun filled events of the year, and it is so amazing to see all Red Hawks come together to support this worthwhile cause. Thanks in advance for your support!
