Doral Academy of Nevada Foundation is hosting #GivingTuesdayNow Dragons Unite Virtual Concert this Saturday, May 2, from 4 to 8 p.m. via Facebook live.

The musical event is open to everyone that aims to build on the funds raised so far and continue to help more families and their children in need in the midst of the continuing pandemic.

In the last month Doral fundraisers have helped almost 50 families who have requested items and services such as groceries, gas, utilities, technology and mental health resources. In all, Doral has donated almost $15,000 through the Dragons in Need Fundraiser since April 1.

The academy's staff, counselors and marriage and family therapists have also provided assistance for students and parents having a difficult time during this uncertain time brought on by the novel virus.

In addition to counseling sessions, exercises, worksheets, videos and “brain breaks” have been made available as part of the online learning tools provided to all students and their families through the online curriculum should they choose to utilize them.

The Saturday Facebook Live event, while adhering to social distancing guidelines, will showcase talented musicians from the Doral Cactus Campus staff including Chris Brown, Brooke Pulin and Stephany Garcia-Rojas.

The event is open for everyone to enjoy and donations are optional.
