Our House Sweet Home campaign has come to a close and proved once again that our BCS community is truly exceptional.
Thanks to YOU, we surpassed our $1M target, raising a total of $1.327M. Your generosity has ensured that ALL projects within ALL the houses were funded. A total of 445 of you donated, with 140 choosing to make their very first gift to the school. The response from our young alumni has also ensured that we will be planting 51 trees throughout our campus. Special congratulations to Gillard House who came out on top—they have received an extra $25,000 towards their house projects.
We would also like to thank all our sponsors. Your continued support contributes greatly to student life here on campus in so many different ways. Special thanks to our friends at Eggsquis, Coaticook ice cream, Queue de Castor, Provigo, Shogun Sushi, Gordon Food Service, and to Gen Bédard & Andrew Dunkley for sponsoring weekly challenges.
The support and generosity throughout this campaign have been nothing short of tremendous. We are incredibly grateful to belong to such an amazing community, and we can’t wait to share photos of the work that has already started and all that will take place this summer. Stay tuned!
During this week, the house to reach the most parent donors will get to enjoy a Jerry's pizza party courtesy of the BCS Association Board of Directors on Saturday April 24. Whether you're a 'pizza and Habs game' house or a 'pizza and movie marathon' type family, we've got you covered—pizza's on the Board!
The first house to raise $25,000 within this week will have the choice between three exciting off-campus excursions: a movie night in downtown Sherbrooke (complete with popcorn and other snacks), a day of paintball, or an escape room adventure.
Even with summer right around the corner, our students may still need some extra motivation to get out of bed in the morning. The Advancement Team is here to help, with a special breakfast delivered directly to your house on Monday, June 7. You'll even have permission to miss chapel in order to really savour your first meal of the day!
This prize is yours if your house has the most donors during the week of May 29 - June 4.
