Cougarpalooza was created in response to a family whose home was burnt down. Our school's Student Council tried to think of a creative way to help this family out. Thus, it was created in the form of a competitive student-faculty talent show. It became a a big hit where we raised over $500 for the family in addition to about 800 cans of food for a local food pantry on the side. Now, it has become an annual event to help our community in need as well as serve as a fun and safe way to have fun while expressing one's talent.
