Superhero gala raises $34,800 for safety & accessibility fund

It was a fun night with student performances, dinner, games, auctions and your generosity bringing the safety & accessibility fund to $63,704 total!

On April 26 nearly 200 Nanaimo Christian School students, parents, grandparents, staff, former staff and friends came together for a fun evening at the Superhero Gala & Auction in the NCS gym. It was a great night with student performances, dinner, games, auctions and your generosity bringing the safety & accessibility fund to $63,704 total!.

THANK YOU to all who gave with donations of time and energy, gathering items, buying items, making cash donations, and recruiting family and friends to join in the superhero-themed evening. The event raised $34,800 toward the student safety and accessibility fund for building upgrades. Add to that the other $28,904 in safety and accessibility giving this school year, and we are at $63,704 … getting close to our big goal of $75,000! You can donate here.

Thank you to all who pulled item tags off the giving tree at the gala and gave an additional $1,230 toward adaptive equipment for students in classrooms: noise-cancelling headphones, sensory tools, a tablet and more.

THANK YOU to our event sponsors:
