help save david’s eyes

Benefit Concert – Featuring Brandon Heath, Jason Ingram, Matthew West & Tiffany Lee (Plumb)
Wednesday, March 11th
7:00pm, Student Center

No tickets needed but we will take donations for the cause.

=================================================
BENEFIT STORY:

The following information was approved by the Atmajaya family to share with the school community.

David Atmajaya is a senior at Centennial High School (18 yrs old). David’s father recently passed away from a severe stroke. David is losing his eyesight. He recently went to an eye specialist who told him he is legally blind and will completely lose his eyesight if he does not have immediate eye surgery. David suffers from glaucoma in both eyes. He has been paying $220. a month for eye medicine in an effort to keep his disease in check. Unfortunately, this has not been working. David’s family does not have health insurance.

David’s teacher, Mr. Kirby (who saw the need and inspired the school & community to do something about it), has set up an account at Fifth Third Bank for those who would like to donate and help pay for David’s surgery. His initial surgery has cost the family at least $3,000. and he’s had follow up surgeries still to be scheduled. This does not include the balance due from the loss of his father and the hospital bills the family owes from David’s fathers stroke. There is an account name at Fifth Third Bank called: “SAVE DAVIDS EYES” that we will deposit the money raised into the account.

How your donations will work:

  • Half of all the proceeds will go to David’s family to offset hospital bills.
  • The other half of the proceeds would go in a general fund set up by Centennial High School to help another family in need. The idea is to have an ongoing fund that Mr. Kirby and his students will manage. This fund would be used to help a needy family once every school semester.
  • Having an ongoing fund allows Mr. Kirby and Centennial High School give back to the community while learning the ins and outs of running a non-profit entity.
  • Overall theme of the event is two-fold: 1) Help David See 2) Jump Start General Fund (ongoing)

so in honor of our friend… here’s a song…

He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singin’ the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin’ tweet tweet tweet

Rockin’ robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Rockin’ robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Oh rockin’ robin well you really gonna rock tonight

Every little swallow, every chickadee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flapping them wings sayin’ go bird go

A wordy little raven at the bird’s first dance
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
He started goin’ steady and bless my soul
He out popped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singin’ the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin’ tweet tweet tweet
