South Tahoe 18-year-old organizes Haiti benefit for senior project

South Tahoe High School student Alyssa Mesecher has organized a fundraiser to benefit the victims of the Haiti earthquake from 3 to 5 p.m. April 24 at St. Theresa Church, 1041 Lyons Ave.

The two-hour “Tahoe for Haiti” concert will feature live music, a silent auction, raffle and refreshments.

Mesecher, 18, organized the event as her senior project. The project guidelines require 15 hours of work, a 2,000-word paper and an eight-minute presentation in front of five judges.

“Every year each senior gets the privilege of doing a senior project,” Mesecher said. “I have had the privilege to travel to several third world countries and I see how privileged we are here in America, so I chose to do a project so I can hopefully help some of those in need.”

All of the funds raised will go to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in Haiti.

Music will be by Dan Anderson, Jesse Kalin and others.

Admission is $5. Kids are free.

For information, contact Mesecher at (530) 318-7949 or (530) 544-7176.
