Ashley Appell was a guest soloist at the Winter Festival of the Performing Arts at Glen Cove High School on Long Island in December. Appell was asked to sing at the event after members of the Select Chorale participated in the 10th Annual HPS Network Christmas Concert fundraiser. The 50 member chorus provided back up for Ashley Appell and Mervin Hernandez (on the sax) at the event.
The HPS Network was also able to sell the newest Christmas CD “A Very Merry Christmastime” at the High School’s Winter Festival. Sales of the CD that night raised more than $800 for the HPS Network. The school also held a 50/50 raffle in honor of the HPS Network at the concert. The winner donated his winnings back to the HPS Network, an extra special holiday gift to those affected by HPS.
