Kickline Holds Car Wash to Compete at Nationals

East Islip High School’s kickline held a successful car wash at Rita’s Italian Ices on Main Street during the weekend of Sept. 21, a fundraising event intended to raise money for the team’s planned trip to Orlando, Fla. in March to participate in the National Dance Alliance’s championship competition. The car wash was just one of many fundraisers the team plans to hold this year in order to alleviate the cost of the trip for the students.
“The efforts of the team members and the support of their parents are the things that will make our fundraising efforts a success, giving each of these girls the opportunity to represent East Islip High School at the NDA Nationals,” said the team’s coach, Denise Naccarato.

The next fundraiser for the kickline team (along with the school’s three Career Academies) is the annual Halloween Family Fun Night on Oct. 25, followed by a Chinese auction on Nov. 30, both to be held at East Islip High.
