A Warm Winter Wonderland: Fundraiser Update

snowmomLooking at the temperatures outside (and yesterday’s record setting high of 16 degrees Celsius, in particular) it would seem like the weather hasn’t been especially supportive of our Winter Wonderland fundraiser theme.  Still, to whatever extent Mother Nature hasn’t brought us the expected Winter Wonderland climate, our community most certainly has.  Once again, you’ve delivered!

The School Council fundraising subcommittee set out with the ambitious goal of raising $10,000, and the response this past week has been overwhelming, surpassing our original goal and blowing the top off of our snow-mometer!  Our sincerest thanks to all those who’ve contributed to this campaign –your contributions make a real difference for our students!

If you have yet to contribute, please remember that it’s not too late … and with total school-wide participation, we might even manage to eclipse our earlier record-setting total of $13,000 from last year!  Students can bring still bring in donations and for every $10 dollars raised, students will still be issued a ticket which they can place into a draw to win a prize.  Prizes will be drawn for and awarded at the close of the culminating event on Friday, February 12, 2016 … where our students will be on their feet, participating in an amazing Winter Wonderland Celebration with the help of Bounce Entertainment!  

As an additional update, we’ve just been given another great prize to include in our raffle from Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment: a signed plaque from Toronto Maple Leafs centerman Daniel Winnik (a letter of authenticity is included)!  This prize now joins the X-Box One System, iPod Touch, Dr. Dre Beats Solo2 Headphones, Maple Leafs tickets, Toronto Raptors tickets, diamond earrings (.15 ct), shopping centre gift cards, a sports extravaganza bundle, girls fun bundle, boys fun bundle, toy bundle, tween/teen bundle, and weekend fun packages … among other fabulous items!

Thank you for helping us meet (and hopefully beat) our fundraising goals!

We’re looking forward to an amazing Winter Wonderland!
