37th Annual SHINE Auction
The Heathman Lodge, Vancouver
May 6, 2017
What an Amazing Auction!
This year on May 6, 2017 we came together to raise funds for Our Lady of Lourdes School. With a new location and a move to spring, we welcomed 280 guests at The Heathman Lodge to an evening of celebration and an outpouring of support for the school's mission.
During the evening's event, we asked guest to raise the paddle to give Lourdes student's innovative learning tools. This year, we look to buy technology to provide more consistent access to computers in the classroom. The goal is to purchase 75 Chromebooks and three laptop carts for intermediate and middle school students, and a classroom set of iPads for primary students. The cost of this initiative is $42,000. At the end of the evening, $35,500 was donated towards funding the purchase of this technology!
We are truly grateful for all of you who raised your paddle, but we are not done yet. In order to update our schools technology and complete the purchase, an additional $6,500 is needed. Please donate to this need as soon as possible but before the end of the school year, June 14, 2017. Simply click on the link Donate to Fund an Item or donate at the school.
This year our community of supporters raised over $127,000 at the Auction! On behalf of all of us at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School who benefit from your gifts, thank you for your generous support.
