Over 200 students from Saint Hubert Catholic High School for Girls in the Tacony section of Philadelphia are coming together to participate in their first ever Dance-A-Rama. The evening’s festivities will raise funds for Our Lady of Confidence Day School (OLC), one of four Archdiocesan Schools of Special Education, as well as the Division of Nephrology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

The Dance-A-Rama was planned by student council officers and has received the support of the school’s community including: school leadership, administrators, teachers, alumnae association, parents, local businesses, as well as the Archdiocesan Schools of Special Education and the Division of Nephrology at CHOP.

In addition to dancing, throughout the evening, attendees will hear from speakers who will share their personal connection to OLC and CHOP.

Students from Saint Hubert’s will also participate in arts and crafts activities including making cards for OLC students and patients receiving care from CHOP’s Division of Nephrology. Each student participating in the Dance-A-Rama will wear a green shirt with blue lettering.  The color green represents kidney disease awareness and the color blue is OLC’s school color.

Through donations secured by members of the student council, over $4,000.00 has been raised thus far. It is projected that students will exceed their original goal of raising $5,000.00 by the conclusion of the event.
