The is preparing for the 13th annual "Coffee for a Cause" to raise money for Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC) on Saturday, April 21, 6:45 p.m.
For this event, local teens perform music, poetry, and comedic skits in a coffee house-type setting, while patrons sip mochas and cappuccinos and dine on home-baked pastries.
The money raised at the event benefits ACBC, an organization that improves the quality of life for young burn survivors and their families by providing funding for research, annual therapeutic residential burn camps, and other year-round activities that support their physical, psychological and social needs.
In the past, students raised more than $10,000 for the charity.
The main goal is to inspire the audience to help children who have endured a terrible crisis get a brief respite from their pain and worries.
