This year’s CGS Gala at Bar Buca was truly an exceptional evening! A big thank you to all who came out and celebrated the CGS Spirit, and participated in the live and silent auctions. Many congratulations to all the winners, and I hope EVERYONE had a fabulous time! I want to acknowledge that this event would not have been possible without the unwavering support of our parent community & volunteers, the CGS staff, and our VERY generous Gala sponsors and silent auction donors. You ALL made the 2019 Gala a huge success and an amazing night to remember. The Foundation is so grateful for your commitment to the children and school, and for your contributions that help to benefit all the students at CGS – past, present and future! We cannot thank you enough.
Between the raffle tickets, donations, ticket purchases and auction items, we raised $41,490. After deducting the venue, entertainment, marketing, and credit card processing costs, our net revenue total was $28,262.81. Once our HST rebate is in, we should be very close to our $30,000 net revenue goal.
Ticket sales $9,750
Raffle tickets $680
Given this tremendous total, we not only have the funds to refurbish the stage as planned (budget of approximately $30,000), we will have enough to proceed with ordering Natural Pod furniture for the JK and SK classrooms for September.
