Singing along to "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," sophomores Allen Vilchis and Lindsey Edwards perform a duet at the Open Mic Night on Thursday, April 12.

Junior Student Council members Durga Jambunathan and Simon Vongxay hosted an open mic night in the Senior Cafe on Wednesday, April 12. Audience members could attend at no cost but were encouraged to bring a box of bandages or a monetary donation of two dollars to support Noah’s Bandage Project.

Noah Wilson, the focus of Noah’s Bandage Project, was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2014 at six years old and eventually passed away in June of 2015. According to Jambunathan, the goal of Noah’s Bandage Project was to make hospital experiences more manageable.

“He wanted to collect more kid-friendly bandages because he noticed the bandages at the hospital he was at were plain,” Jambunathan said. “He thought that kids deserved something more fun to make the experience as bearable as it could be.”

The performances at this event ranged from songs from famous musicals to Pitch Perfect impressions. One performer, sophomore Lindsey Edwards, believes the experience is one she would repeat in the future.

“I would absolutely do this again, this was the third one I’ve done and I will be going again if I can,” Edwards said. “It’s a really laid back atmosphere so if you mess up it doesn’t make a difference.”

Jambunathan’s favorite part of the event was the performances.

“[My favorite part] was hearing [junior] Lauryn Hurley perform and hearing my friends in general get up there and doing silly things and being great,” Jambunathan said.

Edwards was in support of this night not only for the atmosphere and performances. She finds that, overall, the reason StuCo held this event is ultimately very important to the community.

“Noah’s Bandage Project is significant because we’re coming together as a community,” Edwards said. “[We’re remembering] not only the life of a boy who has made an impact, but also giving to kids who are still fighting their battle.”
