Stay tuned for video of the show and more! Thank you to the contestants, partners, and all others involved for making this year’s Dr. Harriton the best show ever!
Each year, Harriton High School Student Council puts on our well-renowned, school-wide charity talent show in late February, Dr. Harriton. The event features 10 student contestants who perform dances, talents, and other exciting acts in hopes of being crowned as the next Dr. Harriton. Dr. Harriton is the biggest event at our school, with over 1,000 attendees every year. Last year’s show was a tremendous success, raising over $35,000 for charity. We are hoping to continue this trend for Dr. Harriton 2020, our 13th annual show, by directing all proceeds from the event toward two local nonprofits: the Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund and the ESF Dream Camp Foundation. Both of these organizations aim to make education more financially accessible to young students in the greater Philadelphia Area.
This year, we’ve chosen two incredible non-profit organizations to direct the show’s funding towards.
The Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund: The Scholarship Fund provides need-based scholarships to recent graduates of LMSD’s Harriton and Lower Merion High Schools. Since its founding in 1964, the Scholarship Fund has provided over 4,000 grants to our students, totaling over $3,000,000 toward higher education. Learn more at https://lmtsf.org/.
The ESF Dream Camp Foundation: As the non-profit branch of ESF, the Dream Camp Foundation offers year-round, award-winning academic enrichment programs to young low-income students from two of the country’s most impoverished cities: Philadelphia, PA and Hartford, CT. Their programs teach students both academic and extracurricular skills, such as math and reading but also creative and performing arts and leadership. Dream Camp helps students on their way toward becoming our future leaders, thinkers, and global citizens and breaking through systematic poverty. Learn more at http://esfdreamcamp.org/
