If ever there was a day for sitting on a sun-drenched patio to witness the extreme athleticism of the top riders and horses in the world as they competed in an international Grand Prix, it was on Sunday, May 27 at Thunderbird Show Park. While sipping on wine or craft beer, munching on a vast variety of hors d'oeuvres and digging into sinfully delicious desserts, the more than 200 VIP guests oohed, aahed and gasped throughout the long, languid afternoon.
This was the 13th Annual Grand Prix Gala, the Foundation's premiere fundraising event. Raising more than $60,000, net proceeds will go to help support the Food For thought Campaign. Thank you to our community partners including:
Super Save Group Western Water Farms Oddfellows Shewan Foundation Thunderbird Show Park Fred Welsh Mechanical Langley Concrete Group Lindsay Kenney LLP Langley Liquor Store Odlum Brown Langley Advance/Langley Times Blacksmith Bakery Dena's Boutique Milner Valley Cheese Van Noort Garden Centres
Also thank you to all our attendees, silent auction donors, committee members and student volunteers. You continue to make learning UNFORGETTABLE for every Langley student!
The day was bright and sunny and the crowd milling about was in a festive mood. It was the day of the Langley School District Foundation's 13th Annual Golf Tournament. Held at Redwoods Golf Course, the very popular event attracted 160 golfers and guests, and in so doing raised almost $120,000 with net proceeds going toward the Foundation's FOOD FOR THOUGHT CAMPAIGN and TOWER GARDEN INITIATIVE.
