JFK Glee High School Showdown

JFK Glee High School Showdown

Just for Kids Foundation celebrated JFK Glee High School Showdown’s 10th anniversary on December 1, 2019!

Over 450 guests were in attendance on December 1, 2019, as nine high schools showcased their creative talent and charitable spirits. This was JFK Glee’s 10th anniversary, and the energy in the theatre was truly palpable. This amazing event has raised over $1.2 Million in the past 10 years, and we are so grateful to all of our supporters.
This year’s fundraising efforts broke records! ECS raised the most money ($16, 266) a team has ever raised in JFK Glee history, with Vincent Massey right behind them at $14, 373.

All proceeds will help purchase high-priority medical equipment, and support initiatives that improve the quality of care for patients of the Montreal Children’s Hospital. To-date, JFK has provided over $11 million of equipment, touching almost every department at the hospital. That is more than 250,000 children treated and 1,500 healthcare professionals who are better equipped to care for their patients.

We are extremely grateful to Bialik High School, ECS, Herzliah High School, John Rennie High School, Kuper Academy, Royal West Academy, St. Thomas High School, Vincent Massey Collegiate, and first time performers Centennial Regional High School. The students were truly outstanding!

The audience enjoyed the energized performances as well as our hosts’ extraordinary enthusiasm (Catherine Verdon-Diamond and veteran Glee host Corey Wolofsky). The excitement in the theatre was electric and it was all possible thanks to our hard-working volunteers, committee members, sponsors and supporters.

Thank you to our esteemed judges: Mark Bergman, Shannon King, and Jason Rockman!

Congratulations to our winners!
