ABOUT THE 2018 CONCERT
Get ready for an evening of talent, love, and hope! From theater acts to classical opera, this benefit concert will showcase unique talents by students of Clear Lake High School.
Dedicated to CCISD Cares, the Clear Creek Independent School District's non-profit which is dedicated to helping CCISD families in need, this benefit concert also aims to promote a welcoming and caring learning environment at Clear Lake HS.
Despite it being months later, many CCISD families are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. Harvey caused an estimated $180 billion in costs and damaged over 203,000 homes. As students and members of our community, we would like to dedicate this concert to those still recovering from the disaster and promote an inclusive and culturally diverse community.
