JGD Casino Fundraiser
Thank you so much to those that signed up already!!
Hello fellow Diefenbaker parents
and guardians. We are having our 2 day casino fundraiser next week and we are
still short 12 volunteers! This fundraiser brings in $50,000 - $80,000 for just
2 days of fundraising. Parent council uses this money to support all areas of
the school; core classes, options and clubs.
If we don’t get more
volunteers then we will have to cancel this event and forfeit our money for the
school. Please sign up if you can. You don’t need
training for this, as long as you are over 18 you can volunteer with us.
Consider bringing a friend and doing it together!!
