Fort St. John youth will use their talents to keep Brazilian kids in school.

The North Peace Secondary School is holding a Talent Show and Art Auction on Saturday, with all proceeds going to a school in Olinda, Brazil.

17 year-old Kimmie Gulevich says the idea stems from a “Me to We” conference held in September. Students from the School District 60 pledged to hold a ‘Global Event’, and focused on fundraising for kids in need.

Kids that attend the Brazilian school live in the slums of Olinda, and education is usually their only refuge.

The North Peace students hope to raise $3,000 for the school. It takes $50 a day to operate the facility in Olinda, so the school could be fully-operational for two months, if the students make their goal.

Tickets to the event are $5.00 each, and include access to the talent show and art auction. Doors open at 2:00 p.m. at the North Peace Secondary School.
