‘CHARITY CHAMPION’ ST. ANTHONY’S HIGH SCHOOL RECEIVES HONORABLE MENTION FROM CABLEVISION’S MSG VARSITY/POWER TO LEARN

School Wins $1,000 for St. Hugh of Lincoln’s Project Hope


MSG Varsity and Cablevision’s education initiative, Power to Learn, recently recognized students at St. Anthony’s High School for their fundraising efforts and participation in Charity Champions, a program developed by Power to Learn that promotes volunteerism and encourages area high schools to raise funds for a local charity. The school received an Honorable Mention and will receive $1,000 to be donated to Project Hope at St. Hugh of Lincoln Roman Catholic Church.

Based on materials submitted to Power to Learn by St. Anthony’s High School, students donated money on a community-wide “Dress Down Day.” Their efforts were an overwhelming success and with the funds collected 25 students then purchased and prepared food to serve community members in need.

Guided by Brothers Joshua DiMauro and Richard Contina, OSF, they prepared the meals at St. Anthony’s High School and then travelled to Saint Hugh of Lincoln Center Roman Catholic Church to serve those who are economically challenged.

Notes Cablevision Vice President of Education Trent Anderson, “MSG Varsity/Power to Learn’s Charity Champions is a wonderful way to support the charitable efforts of the students in the communities we serve. It provides students with a terrific opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives and provides a deserving charity with additional funding. The students at St. Anthony’s High School have demonstrated a commitment to public service and we congratulate them for their efforts.”
