BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We mention because we kinda have to. Pop sensation Justin Bieber will be visiting St. Andrews School in Boca Raton today to honor students who helped raise nearly $52,000 for Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that builds schools in areas of the world where education is lacking.
In terms of St. Andrews math, where tuition runs $25,170 a year for a high-school aged student, the school’s fundraising efforts would provide one year of education to two students.
Parents, according to the Sun Sentinel, will not be invited to the event. Boca Raton Police will have an increased presence in the area. The paper reports that students Briana Finocchiaro, 12, and siblings Angelia and Nicolas — both 9 — raised $51,738 by setting up a web page for Pencils of Promise. Their mother, MaryJo Finocchiaro, is on St. Andrews search committee.
Pencils of Promise is said to be one of Justin Bieber’s favorite charities.
