The students of D'Evelyn Jr./Sr. High School have joined together to host a Wish Week to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Colorado and help grant wishes to Colorado children with life-threatening medical conditions. We would like to invite you to join us and help grant wishes for kids like Luke and his wish to travel on a Disney Cruise.
The impact of a wish is huge! Make-A-Wish has the unique ability to transform a child and a family's life during some of their most difficult trials. A wish creates an opportunity for hope and the ability to experience life beyond illness. A wish is not simply a wish. Wishes are amazing experiences, but more than that, they have the power to change lives.
Help us change the lives of these deserving kids. There are lots of ways you can get involved! Our Wish Week will be held on Monday 9/25 through Saturday 9/30 and we invite you to participate in our events throughout the week. Below is a list of Wish Week events, including restaurant nights. Please share this information with your friends and family and encourage them to attend.
To learn more about how you can support our efforts and help grant even more wishes for these brave kids, please contact Dan Wille at 303-982-2651.
Together we can make a difference in our community!

D'Evelyn High School Proudly Presents: "Is He Dead?" A new comedy by Mark Twain (yes, THAT Mark Twain!)
Oct 5, 6, and 7 at 7:00 P.M. in the DHS Auditorium
Jean-Francois Millet (Zach Volheim), a young painter of genius, is in love with Marie Leroux (Torie Williams) but in debt to the villainous picture-dealer, Bastien Andre (Peter Dickey). Andre forecloses on Millet, threatening debtors' prison unless Marie marries him. Millet realizes that the only way he can pay his debts and keep Marie from marrying Andre is to die, as it is only dead painters who achieve fame and fortune. With the help of his students, Chicago, Dutchy, and O'Shaunessey (Sebastian Coco, Allie Kopp, and PJ O'Neil) Millet fakes his death and prospers, all while passing himself off as his own sister. Now a rich "widow", he must find a way to get out of his dress, return to life, and marry Marie before Marie's father, Mr. Leroux (Adrian Montoya) proposes marriage to him. Confusing and hysterical, "Is He Dead?" is sure to please!
Reserved seat tickets ($8) go on sale October 2 during lunches, or by calling 303/982-2600. Door tickets are $10.
