Indian Hills drama director Angela Youngers and members of the cast of the recent Indian Hills play “John Lennon and Me,” Liz Napier, Katie Derouin, Preston Hayes and Lauren Johnson, present $500 to Blank Children’s Hospital Director of Development Alissa McKinney.

The Indian Hills drama department recently presented the school play “John Lennon and Me,” which was set in a children’s hospital. To give the students more accurate and authentic information, drama director Anglea Youngers brought in a Child’s Life Specialist from Blank Children’s Hospital to talk to the students. They also donated some props for use in the play.

As a thank you for the kindness of Blank Children’s Hospital, Youngers and the cast put together a silent auction to raise funds for both the drama department and Blank. From the proceeds, the cast was able to donate $500 to Blank Children’s Hospital.

“This money will go to help fund the Child Life department,” said Blank’s Director of Development Alissa McKinney. “It’s really important we get dollars for this program because it makes a huge difference for our patients and families.”
