(KNSI) - St. Cloud Area School District students will show off their talent's to help raise funds for school activities.
The 17th annual Night of the Stars variety show is Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud.
The fundraiser is put on by the Local Education and Activities Foundation (LEAF), a nonprofit started to support school activities.
LEAF Executive Director Bruce Hentges says the performances are inspiring.
"People who think kids don't have it today, or are not as capable as they used to be, really need to come to the show. Their talent year after year has just been amazing."
Tickets can be purchased at the Paramount Box Office or online. The cost is $16 for an adult and $6 for a student.
The show's goal is to raise $20,000 for the LEAF endowment.
Night of the Stars was started by LEAF in 2002 to help fund middle school activities, which were being cut by the district at the time.
Since then the nonprofit has grown to support academic programs as well as activities.
