The annual Grad Hockey Game that took place at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre in 100 Mile House on Jan. 28 was an outstanding success.
The Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School Dry Grad Committee realized more than $2,100 at the event. the committee also raised $1,000 on its annual raffle sale.
Dry Grad Committee chair Holly Johnson says more than 200 people showed up for the hockey game and they cheered on the Class of 2016 players who beat the parents/teachers team.
“The event was very successful. We had about 200 people attend and about 60 others either playing or volunteering.
“Everyone had a lot of fun and the grads raised a substantial amount to put towards their prom costs.”
She adds the face-painting was a lot of fun for the grads and children involved.
“The grads enjoyed helping out with such a great community event.”
The next fundraising event for the grad class is the annual Fashion Show – Rock of Ages – in the school gymnasium on April 8, starting at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 per person.
