Now that her five-year string of musicals raising money for Make-A-Wish has come to an end, senior Mikayla Davic said it feels a little surreal and emotional.

“Looking back on my first year, I smile thinking about all the challenges I faced. But it has come full circle,” she said.

Davic’s last show was held on Saturday, November 5th, wrapping up her series of original musicals that  were made to raise money for children.

Davic originally set a goal of raising $50,000 with her musicals, which started when she was in eighth grade. The contributions rolled in over the weekend, as this year’s musical, Lost and Found, raised $22,000 — pushing the total raised by Davic’s five musicals to more than $67,000.

“It goes beyond words how proud and accomplished I feel,” she said. “This has been my life for five years, and to have this total for my last big fundraiser makes me happy but also makes me nostalgic.”

There were several special moments throughout the weekend, she said.

“There were several kids in my show who came to me with their own donations to Make-A-Wish. These kids get to see and understand, and they want to make a difference too,” she said.

On Friday night’s show, a Make-A-Wish child was the guest, and that night’s performance raised enough money to fund that child’s wish.

Throughout her five-year journey, the Make-A-Wish charity has been her inspiration.

 

I knew it had to be the home for my musicals, because it provides hope for kids. When I started, I wanted to help other kids, because I was a kid too.”

Davic said that while her musicals may be done, she wants to continue fundraising in the future.
