I'm setting up this page in an attempt to provide my 15 year old daughter (Hylah - she's in the above picture in the upper, middle from 2011) with the opportunity to join a 2-week school trip to Europe in the Summer of 2013.
I've always wanted to take the family on a real vacation, but due to family circumstances we haven't, as yet, been able to realize that goal. So, when this opportunity came up recently, I saw it as a chance to at least be able to let Hylah experience some of the outside world as the trip will be traveling through France then to Barcelona.
The goal is to raise $3,500 (the current cost of the tour) by March in order to participate in the trip.
Hylah is a very involved and enthusiastic student. She's been a 4.0 and Honor Roll student throughout Middle School and is now also finding her stride as a Sophomore. She's participated in music since Elementary School (Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Percussion), played live in Disneyland with her Middle School Orchestra and Symphonic Band as well as with her High School Orchestra as a Freshman last year. In her last 2 years of Middle School, she was an ensemble player in 2 school play productions and volunteered as a crew member for a 3rd production after graduating Middle School. She's done volunteer work with a couple local organizations. She also has been playing softball (primarily as a catcher) for the last 7 years in local recreational leagues and travel teams as well as joining her High School team last spring. So, I couldn't think of a better way to reward her for all of her efforts (academically and otherwise) than to let her meet new people, make new friends and see the world with this opportunity.
Thank you all in advance!
