Bentley School hosted its first annual Winter Classic Fundraiser recently. Admission to the event was either a food donation which is donated to our local Blessed Pantry, gift for a grandparent (fundraiser we hold at the school) or cash donation (which goes toward families in need within our community).
We sold 50/50s and had a raffle table. The evening broke down as follows: first period was staff versus junior high students (Gr. 6-8), the second period was the skills competition between staff and students, third period was staff versus senior high students.
The stands were packed with students and parents cheering. Santa and his elves came out for the night and handed out candy canes, school T-shirts, water bottles, and Frisbees to the crowd. We also had our school mascot, the Pink Panther skate around and welcome parents and students to the game.
We thank our sponsors: United Cycle, A&R Reclamation, Current Contracting, Thunder Welding, and G.L.D.C. Gas Co-op Ltd.
Joan Gammie won the 50/50 ($129.50) and Matt Peterson, Dorothy Plamondon, Joanne Simpson and Sharron Juuti won the raffle prizes.
The total raised was $1,100 which will be donated to help local families.
Have a merry Christmas.
