Students Play For Charity

On a warm, clear evening in late May, a group of Locust Valley High School students performed a concert in Morgan Park to raise money for cancer research. The concert was the brainchild of siblings Greg and Amanda Caso, whose mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall.

 

The concert on May 30 featured 15 acts of student performers, from vocalists to instrumentalists to bands and raised about $1,400 for Team CasoLearning, the Relay for Life team organized by the Caso siblings, who are both seniors at the high school.

 

The stage of Morgan Park was the perfect setting for families and friends to relax, listen to talented musicians, and support a good cause.

 

Alyssa Caso, Greg and Amanda’s mother, was thrilled to see her children and their classmates organize such an involved event.

 

“They have been working so hard,” she said. “It totally surprised me to learn they were doing this, but I’m very happy and proud of them.”

 

Alyssa was diagnosed with breast cancer last October and had her first surgery in November. She is now recovering from her second surgery, which she underwent on April 10. She says she is currently doing well and feeling good.

 

Greg Caso, along with co-coordinators David DePerez and Ishan Prasad, had been putting the wheels in motion for the charity concert since December. Greg said that once they had the idea, they had no problem getting students to participate. The hardest part was coordinating rehearsal times, but in the end, everything came together smoothly; despite the original scheduled performance date of May 10. He says having a few extra weeks did help their preparations, and all who attended had a good time and enjoyed the music.

 

Most of the students performed cover songs, though a few did perform original pieces. The event also contained a raffle, with items generously donated by local businesses. All of the proceeds go toward Relay

For Life; to make a donation, visit www.relayforlife.org and find team CasoLearning.
