Justin Bieber and Adam Braun Visit St. Andrew’s School To Congratulate Schools 4 All WinnersTeam PoP April 19th, 2012
This past Friday, Justin Bieber and Adam Braun made a trip down to Boca Raton, Florida to congratulate our Schools 4 All winners, the Finocchiaro children. Read more about the exciting visit here...
Last year, Pencils of Promise launched the Schools4All Campaign, which created a worldwide competition between students to raise the most money for PoP. The grand prize: a visit to the winner’s school from teen idol, Justin Bieber and PoP’s founder, Adam Braun.
Although the competition was high, Briana Finocchiaro, 12, and her twin siblings, Angelia and Nicolas, ages 9 came out with the victory, raising $51,738.50!
Thanks to the Finocchiaro family’s hard work and fundraising, St. Andrew’s School was awarded an afternoon presence of both Justin and Adam. Fans shrieked, screamed, and sobbed when Justin rolled up in his beige SUV. Adam then gave a presentation on PoP to the auditorium of excited fans.
After congratulating the Finocchiaro children, Justin then performed a brief version of “Baby” to the crowd. The students of St. Andrew’s School were thrilled to host both Adam and Justin for the afternoon. After the event, Justin tweeted “met some amazing kids who are helping change the world with their work with @pencilsofpromis” – #MAKEACHANGE
Congratulations Briana, Angelia, and Nicolas!
