A large number of students belonging to Aldar Academies shed uniform for costumes to take part in a charity concert in Abu Dhabi last weekend raising over AED 40,000 for children in need.
Organizers of the event said that all funds raised from the event – Aldar Academies Musical Spectacular – will be donated to the Red Crescent charity.
Over 540 students participated in the event many performing for the first time. They took part in classic performances from famous theatrical shows of The Lion King, Beauty & the Beast to Cinderella and Grease.
The latest annual concert brings the total funds raised by Aldar Academies’ students across its five consecutive charity concerts to over AED 410,000.
The leading education provider in Abu Dhabi & Al Ain has previously raised funds in support of children in need across Somalia, to help build a school library for a school of 500 Ethiopian orphans.
They also held a similar event to support Nepalese orphans following the country’s devastating earthquake in 2015, and for the Children’s Special Care Center in Abu Dhabi.
