NATIONAL TOURING ACT TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR LOCAL HOLT DI TEAMS
THREE MEN AND A TENOR- IN CONCERT
A benefit concert for the Destination Imagination teams of Holt Public Schools
WHEN: Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019
LOCATION: Margaret Livensparger Theatre @ Holt High School
ADDRESS: Holt High School, 5885 Holt Rd, Holt, MI 48842
With a 27-year performance career with the same original members, over 3,000 performances and shows with Jay Leno, The Beach Boys, a national PBS television special and voted 4-time winners of “The Best Entertainment” in Michigan, Three Men and a Tenor has had an illustrious career all over the world. This family-oriented concert is special because 2 of the members of 3MT - Mark and Glenn - have raised families in Holt, and each had children that were members of DI teams in the school district. Glenn’s son is currently a member of one of the Holt DI teams. This special night is a concert of “3MT Giving Back” to help the current teams afford the chance to go to Global recognition at the events in Tennessee in May.
Destination Imagination, or DI, is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage, and curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in the STEAM fields. Think of it as Science Olympiad meets Drama Club. Kids form teams at the beginning of the school year and work with a parent or teacher who serves as their coach/mentor. They spend several months working on their central challenge which they perform at the Regional Tournament in March. The top 3 teams for each of the different challenges/levels go onto compete at the State Tournament in April, with the top 3 teams from States going on to compete at the DI Global Finals. The Global Finals competition will be held in Kansas City, MO, over the last week of May.
Holt Public Schools and the Holt community, has consistently had a strong presence at the Destination Imagination tournaments at both the Regional and State level. In the previous DI season, Holt-Dimondale DI had the most teams of any school district at the State Tournament (17 teams) AND at Global Finals (a record number of 6 teams for Holt)!
DI Global Finals is an unbelievable opportunity for our students to showcase their talents on the world stage, however, it is a rather expensive proposition and requires each school/team to raise the money to pay their own way to the tournament.The cost for Global Finals is just around $1200 per team member.
The goal of the 3MT/DI Benefit Concert is to raise funds for :
Cover State Tournament Fee expenses - Holt-Dimondale DI has so many teams that typically go on to the State Tournament that the $60 participation fee that we charge students does not always cover all of the State Tournament Fee costs.
Provide money to purchase the Instant Challenge materials that are used for our annual Instant Challenge Day Event.
Help offset some of the team registration fees associated with Global Finals for the teams going on to compete in May.
There is a very short window of time between the State Tournament and Global Finals and teams can be overwhelmed with the cost of the tournament and the short time to work to raise money.
