The Corona del Mar High girls’ lacrosse and girls’ soccer teams are working together for a fundraiser and a special screening of the documentary, “Girl Rising,” Monday night at the Little Theater at Corona del Mar High School.
Kenya Keys, https://www.kenyakeys.org, is an organization that provides educational opportunities where there are none. The project uses 100% of donations to go to the cause, the website says.
“Girl Rising,” is a documentary that chronicles the lives of nine girls who battle great adversity to gain education.
“The event at Corona del Mar High School is meant to give faith to the girls of Kenya,” CdM girls’ lacrosse coach Aly Vislocky said in an email. “It is meant to show them that we will be by their side … halfway across the world.”
Monday night’s event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. The cost is $15 per person. The CdM teams are hoping to fill the maximum 200 for the event.
Tickets can be purchased online or donations can be made at https://www.kenyakeys.eventbrite.com, or it is $20 at the door.
The event includes, a Kenyan dinner, African music and booths that will be selling photography of the African theme.
Corona del Mar High School is located at 2101 Eastbluff Drive in Newport Beach.
