2017 Gala

BC Christian Academy 2017 Gala

Thank You for Your Prayers & For Attending!

Our 25th Anniversary Fundraising Gala Was a Huge Success!

We are pleased to let you know that the 25th Anniversary Fundraising Gala Dinner was a huge success! Thank you for your prayers, participation and support!

Our goal for the evening was to raise $200,000.00.  This amount would include the Leadership Gift from our Corporate Sponsors, money that was donated that night and also money pledged for the next 5 years.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of so many, our Gala held last Saturday, May 13th 2017 at the Executive Plaza Hotel, brought in about $214,000 – money that includes future pledges mainly from Rock Foundation donors for the next 5 years and other monies we have raised this school year.  This amount will be used to help us upgrade our school server and our school-wide security system, replace our old laptops, some aging computers in our offices and our Computers on Wheels, and continue our grant program to support families who otherwise could not afford the tuition.

The BC Christian Academy is extremely grateful to all its corporate sponsors for their generosity.  Their donations prior to the gala provided the “seed money” for this fundraiser.

We were blessed and delighted by the number of people that turned out—nearly 265 guests (volunteers not included) to support our work and mission!  Guests in attendance were treated to performances by the HS Concert Band and Strings, Grade 3 Class, Quartet and Quintet Performers that included teachers, current students and an alumnus.  We are grateful for the presence and speeches of our dignitaries that included the MP Ron Mc Kinnon and his wife, Mayor Greg Moore of Port Coquitlam and Mayor Richard Stewart of Coquitlam and his wife, the Executive Director Peter Froese of Federation of Independent Schools Association, our former School Board Chair Teresa Black-Hughes and former Elementary school principal Travis Bryerton.

We send our heartfelt thanks to the staff, alumni, former board member, former school parents, and current parent and student who shared stories of how the school has made a huge difference in their lives.  Indeed, the overpowering message that evening was how Christ and Community was central in everything that we do here at BC Christian Academy.   The staff who have poured so much of themselves to the school are worth recognizing that night too.  We wouldn’t be where we are if not for their sacrifices.  It was great to look back and catch the glimpse of how BCCA has grown and has blessed so many families over the last 25 years.

Finally, a deeply heartfelt thank you to our 2017 Sustainability Committee for their dedication, creativity, and resourcefulness in making our 25th Anniversary Fundraising Gala Dinner one to remember!

We had to simply praise the Lord for all of this!

In His Service,

Arlene Johnston & Ana Enduma
