Local grad committees looking to raise funds for alcohol-free high school graduation celebrations and activities will once again get a helping hand from community members and the BC Liquor Distribution Branch.
From Feb. 28 to Mar. 31, 2016, BC Liquor Stores are collecting donations for local Support Dry Grad initiatives – and will be thanking customers that contribute one dollar or more with a small token of appreciation. One hundred per cent of all donations raised by BC Liquor Stores will go directly to the school district in their area or to the Federation of Independent Schools, which in turn will give the funding to participating local grad committees.
More than 270 high schools in 55 school districts are participating in this year’s campaign. Last year, the month-long fundraiser generated over $400,000, which helped more than 52,000 B.C. high school graduates throughout the province take part in alcohol-free events and activities.
