(March 28, 2011 - Riverhead, NY) On February 18th, the students of Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School produced, directed and starred in the 2nd Annual Mercy for Haiti Talent Show. Sponsored by the McGann-Mercy Student Organization, the talent show was chock-full of talent with over 30 acts performing for more than 300 spectators. With the now famous quote from Mother Theresa, “ We can do no great things, only small things with great love” featured prominently on the front of the stage as a unifying theme, students opened their hearts by performing such acts as a martial arts demonstration, singing, instrumental pieces, dancing, and poetry readings; many of the students performed original pieces.
To date, more than $2,500 has been raised for the relief efforts in Haiti, where they still struggle to recover from last year’s devastating earthquake and recent hurricane. The organizers still hope to raise even more money through the sale of the event’s DVD.
