Students raise funds for teen with heart condition - 03/10/23

Nine seniors from Battle Ground High School will take the stage later this month to display their talents and compete for the title of Best of BG. They’ll also be raising money for a great cause: supporting a local teen with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. 

18th annual Best of BG
When: Saturday, March 25
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Location: Battle Ground High School cafeteria, 300 W Main St., Battle Ground, WA 98604
Cost: $15 at the door, cash only
Event website

The show will be posted on Battle Ground High School’s YouTube channel after the 25th.

All proceeds from ticket sales, a silent auction and donations will go to Luke, a Clark County teen who has had more than 19 surgeries and is currently receiving care at Seattle Children’s Hospital, where he awaits a heart and liver transplant. 

“The community supports schools so often, it is our turn as a school to offer our support back to them,” said Sarah Shoote, a junior at Battle Ground High School and co-director of the Best of BG. “This year that support is being given to Luke. Luke is only 15, like our freshmen, and his condition has demonstrated how severe medical problems can happen to kids our age. It is so special to see our students support Luke, even though most have not met him in real life.”

The Best of BG is organized by the school’s Associated Student Body and is co-directed by Shoote and Sora Tolley, both Battle Ground High School students. Mason Trezise is their adviser. This year’s judges are Battle Ground Deputy Mayor Cherish DesRochers, Miss Clark County Vanessa Munson and Superintendent Denny Waters.
