Pasta by the plateful

As a special thank you, the graduating students had a “Miss BCSS” fashion show featuring the boys of the graduating class.

Students helped cook and serve the supper

 

Diners ate pasta by the plateful at a spaghetti dinner hosted by Boundary Central Secondary School grad parent committee on April 23.

This year, the committee fundraised for the grad dinner at the Manteo Resort in Kelowna, as well as the ceremony and dry grad activities including zip lining, laser tag, and an outing to the H20 water park in Kelowna.

The event sold 150 tickets in advance and more at the door, said grad parent president Memory Delisle, which puts the committee well over its fundraising goal for this year.

Delisle estimates the committee has raised over $13,000 including the proceeds from the dinner. Excess money will go towards next year’s class.

“This community has been very generous,” Delisle said. The events are completely paid for by the fundraising, with no additional cost to students.”

This year’s class has 34 grads, and there are five parents on the grad committee. All of the grads play a part in the fundraisers throughout the year, including some who served and helped cook at this event.

As a special thank you to everyone who came out, the graduating students had a “Miss BCSS” fashion show featuring the boys of the graduating class.

The spaghetti dinner was the final fundraising event of this year. Other fundraisers included the Grads Versus Dads hockey game, and ongoing bottle drives through the year.
