At the presentation, I was completely shocked when I received a cheque for the charity for $700.00 on behalf of the Parent Council. They had popcorn sales throughout the year and chose to donate the funds to Brianne's LEAP of Hope. So very thoughtful and generous. The girls and their families in less than two weeks raised the balance to put us just under the $7000.00 mark. We had two raffles with Fit Bits and other great gifts, to help raise the money and add some fun. Thanks to Shoya Wells for all her help helping me with the raffles.
I have always been amazed year after year how this group of young women come together to help make a difference in the lives of so many children in our city and surrounding area who need our support and love. It is so fun to watch the Well Wishes that each class perform to send off the Grade 9 girls as they head to High School. It is always such a fantastic day and already look forward to next year!!! Thanks again to the teaching Staff, the Parent Council, parent volunteers and last but definitely not least the fantastic students at CGS. Thankfully, Brianne's legacy will live on through your shared determination with myself to share her story of courage and strength to help others.
With heartfelt thanks,
