September 17th, the Key Clubs from all of the schools in the Antelope Valley gathered together at Lancaster High school football field for an even called “September Sunset.” It’s an event where the club members can meet and befriend members from other clubs, have an open mic night/talent show, join together in a spirit session, and, at the end of the night, release balloons in the air in honor of those that lost their lives in natural disasters.
All the proceeds of the admission fees go towards relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
Key Club President Carinne De Leon says “September Sunset was a fun experience to be able to meet new people and bond with Key Clubbers from the other schools in our division. Along with exciting ice breakers, members were able to showcase their talents in a sunset jam session.”
She stresses, “Most importantly, we were able to raise money for the victims of the natural disasters occurring around the world, such as Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. It was touching when we had a moment of silence for those that lost their lives in these tragic events and let balloons go in honor of them.”
