Boston College Hosts Singing Competition to Raise Money for Local Children

Boston College is finding unique and exciting ways to raise money to benefit the music program at under-resourced school in area. The 14th annual event, Sing it to the Heights Competition, which is Boston College’s “American Idol”-inspired contest, attracted a larger number of students, faculty, and staff. The event raised about $4,200 to benefit the music program at St. Columbkille Partnership School, a Catholic school in Brighton operated by St. Columbkille Parish, the Archdiocese of Boston and Boston College.

The judges of the contest were two Jesuit brothers at the university. William Gartside, St. Columbkille Head of School, said that “in addition to the funds raised, the event gives our students an opportunity to not only showcase their own musical talents, but also to see the passionate and talented BC students who bring joy to the community through their performances.”
