OKEECHOBEE — Gilbert Chevrolet recently teamed up with Ms. Debbie Raulerson and the OHS Thespian Troupe #7319 for a Test Drive Fundraiser to help raise funds for their club. The community was encouraged to stop by Gilbert Chevrolet to test drive their favorite Chevy vehicle. For each completed test drive, $25 was donated to the Troupe.
With support from the community, parents, and teachers, Mrs. Raulerson and her Thespian Troupe raised $1,000. With the funds raised, Mrs. Raulerson and the Thespian Troupe will be able to continue to provide shows, purchase needed equipment, and travel to competitions.
In December the Thespian Troupe traveled to Jensen Beach High School to compete in the District 15 One Act Festival and received a rating of “Excellent!”
Mrs. Raulerson and her Thespian Troupe not only bring smiles to students and citizens throughout the county, but lessons learned here help create future successful, productive adults! We are honored to have been able to support their program.
