Lentopoly Fundraiser - Heading to the finish line!






We are in the final weeks of the Lentopoly Fundraiser.  Students continue to be creative in their fundraising ideas.  Competition between the factions is heating up!  The grade 10/11 team took an early lead but the grade 12 team came up big in the following weeks to close the gap.  The fundraiser officially ends on Monday April 10th.  The winner will be announced once all the monies are collected for the final tally.  Of course we know the real winners are the projects in Guatemala, Alabama, Saskatoon, Calgary and Oliver!

The Lentopoly Auction was held last Thursday.  Staff and students donated items to be auctioned off to raise money for the ALSO projects.  Auction items ranged from chocolate milk, to baking, to soccer and football jerseys, to a movie night with the Woods family, to cruising 8th street in Richards cadillac, to two gourmet meals prepared and hosted by Hugo and Jim (who knew our men could cook!) to countless other items. The auction is always met with great enthusiasm.

Lentopoly- Curling Funspiel!









The Faith and Life Committee are doing their part to raise money for the Lentopoly fundraiser projects.  These include projects in Guatemala, Alabama, Calgary, Saskatoon and Oliver.  The Committee organized a Funspiel at the local curling rink to put the fun into Fundraising! It was generous supported and sponsored by Wakaw and District EMS.  Proceeds were distributed between the teams depending on the final standings.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The event was a smashing success.  Spirits were high and the competition was fierce!  The best part was the money raised by the students for others in need. Game highlights follow.

Lentopoly 2017 - Game On!






The competition heats up between the 3 teams raising money for the Faith and Life fundraiser - LENTOPOLY!

All the money raised goes to worthy causes.  Students continue to raise money for our Lentopoly projects in Saskatoon, Calgary, Oliver, Alabama, and Guatemala.   To date over $3,000 has been raised, which is good because sponsoring a hot meal at the Calgary Drop-in Centre, which we are doing, costs $2,000.  Students shared in chapel about the Appleby Drive Kids Club, another project target, and highlighted The Gleaners in Oliver, BC, and organization that dries leftover fruit and vegetables for food banks.  Students will visit these projects during ALSO week and forward the donations at that time.

 

  Students are baking pies, shoveling driveways, serving coffee and cookies at church, and planning bottle drives to keep the money flowing so we can meet all of our giving targets. 

  

 

 

 

 

 

Each week teams recieve an update in chapel on their progress.  For each 200 dollars raised teams can roll the dice to advance around the Lentopoly game board.  The grade 10/11 team have taken an early lead in the game.
