CROSS RIVER, N.Y. John Jay Middle School students really do rock.
A rock concert they held recently raised nearly $2,000 for a program that helps children with cancer and other serious illnesses.
By all accounts, the sixth annual John Jay Middle School Charity Rock Concert was a great success, raising money for the Killian Mansfield Foundation , which brings integrative health care to children with life-threatening maladies. The event was sponsored by the PTO and organized by sixth grade teacher Jesse Weiss and Katonah Elementary School fifth grade teacher Craig Jettelson.
An audience of 200 attended the show, which featured the vocal and instrumental talents of 30 John Jay Middle School students who joined Weiss and Jettelsons band, Halfway to Sanity, on stage.
Each year, the concert raises money for a wide variety of causes.
