A group of local middle schoolers hope to travel to a global competition May 23 through a self-produced fundraising telethon.
The telethon features the DI Vincis team— students Tiffany Chen, Exely Dillingham, Jeffrey Han, Elizabeth Kwon, Maximum Wilder-Smith and La Cañada Prep’s Cameron Cheung—performing music, magic and comedy.
It's currently airing on Time Warner Channel 19 and AT&T U-verse Channel 99 daily at 3 and 7 p.m.
The team hopes to raise $14,000 to attend the Destination ImagiNation global finals in Knoxville Tennessee after having previously won first place in the statewide "Solar Stage" middle school category in March.
Destination Imagination, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving.
