Take a trip back in time to the 60’s for HELP’s annual fundraiser, HELP Hits The High Notes. HELP is a non-profit organization set to help at-risk youth find the job of their dreams here in the Coastal Bend. HELP stands for Hammons Education Leadership Program, a program that is in 21 schools across the Coastal Bend.

“HELP takes students to explore local careers hands-on, such as welding, scaffolding, and other refinery-related careers, nursing, radiology, paramedics, firefighting, machining, and trucking. Our local business partners allow our students to “try-on” careers, to see how they taste, feel, and smell before they commit to further education in their chosen fields.”

HELP Hits the High Notes is the only fundraiser for HELP, taking place at Brewster Street Icehouse on Wednesday. Doors open at 5 p.m.

There will be numerous silent auction items that total $50,000, including a signed Paul McCartney Violin Bass, a Guitar signed by Bob Dylan, a Fishing trip package to Uruguay, an all-inclusive sports package for any game in any sport this year, plus many more. If you cannot make the event, you are encouraged to bid for an auction item over the phone, 361-815-6122. Must have method of payment, address, and driver license number to bid on item.

KRIS 6 Communications is a proud sponsor of this years fundraiser. You can catch KRIS 6 News Sunrise team, Meteorologist Maclovio Perez, Morning Anchors Mike Gillaspia and Priscilla Torres, sing and dance the night away to help benefit HELP.
