The Foundation raised more than $70,000 at the 10th Annual Grand Prix Gala held at Thunderbird Show Park
The 10th Annual Grand Prix Gala was another huge success for the Foundation
On Sunday May 31, 250 guests spent the afternoon watching an international horse-jumping competition, while munching on gourmet hors d'oeuvres and sipping on award-winning wines. Thanks to the sponsors, supporters and attendees, the Foundation raised more than $70,000 to support 21st Century learning in Langley schools. The funds raised will support our Food for Thought Campaign to help provide nutritious meals to the 3000 Langley students who come to school hungry every day.
FOUNDATION FUNDING IN ACTION
The Foundation, through its fundraising activities and endowments is able to fund innovative and unique school programs and projects that would not be funded by the Ministry of Education. Every Spring and Fall, the Foundation asks schools to submit proposals for projects that they would like to receive funding for. Since 2005, the Foundation made grants totaling more than $1 million to support dozens programs and initiatives.
The Langley School District Foundation has received support from a number of corporations and associations, including Envision Financial, Coast Capital Savings, Starline Windows, Vitrum Industries, Online Collision, Resource Training Organization, Langley Advance, Langley Rotary Clubs, Otter Co-op, Kins Farm Market, Thunderbird Show Park, Township of Langley Firefighters' Charities, Walnut Grove Business Association, She's Fit, Costco, Peninsula Runners, Aldergrove Business Association to help us raise funds for Langley student programs.
