Classical Academy High School student, Cassidy Arabe, is a singer, songwriter, and classical guitarist who hosted her first virtual concert when COVID started. She raised $700 in 23 minutes to benefit the Vista Food Pantry. Cassidy has since hosted additional concerts to help others via Instagram and Facebook. In June 2020, Cassidy and her band, raised $2,300 to help a fellow student with growing medical bills. Recently, Cassidy rallied fellow students to submit videos of support for a school employee who was recently diagnosed with cancer and unable to work. She then hosted another virtual concert that raised $550.
“Cassidy expresses herself through music, and it’s allowed her to love, and support others in such a powerful way,” stated her mother, Gidget Arabe, “Her father and I are so proud of her talent and generosity.”
