Prescott High School’s National Honor Society is putting on its annual talent show, “From Homeless to Home,” this weekend.
Committee Chair for the National Honor Society Talent Show Committee Wesley Bradstreet said this year, the silent auction component has grown. It’s been successful in the past, but there were far more donations this year than they’ve had at any other silent auction in the past, Bradstreet said.
“We’ve got a two-night stay at Poco Diablo Resort, a drill from Home Depot, lots of gift cards to different restaurants from the downtown area,” he said. “In total, we have 23 different donations.”
Tickets are $10 for general admission and available in the Prescott High School book store, online at az-prescott.intouchreceipting.com. The show is at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at the Ruth Street Theater, 1050 Ruth St.
Every year, the National Honor Society picks a different charity to donate the show’s proceeds to, Bradstreet said. This year, it’s Prescott Area Shelter Services, a decision the committee made almost completely unanimously, he said. All the proceeds from the show benefit the organization.
“Me and one of my fellow committee members visited the PASS facilities and we were able to see firsthand the work that they do there,” Bradstreet said. “The National Honor Society is very passionate about the mission of PASS, which is to eliminate homelessness in Prescott and to create an environment where people in crisis can find stability.”
The committee has put in a lot of time to put the talent show on, with 10 members putting in about 100 hours, he said. It’s all for a fun night with 18 separate acts that include 23 student performers and one teacher. There’s a variety as well with lots of different dances, vocalists and instrumentalists, he added.
