The Richmond Christian secondary’s Grad Legacy Club is hosting a carnival this Friday, titled “Under the Sea.”
In aid of the school’s Benevolent Fund - established by the school to help anyone in the school’s community (staff, students, parents) who needs help – the event takes place Friday, May 31 from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m.
The event will consist of various food vendors, bouncy castles, inflatable games, pony rides and more than 30 carnival game booths including a fishing booth, where attendees can win live goldfish.
In prior years, more than 1,000 people have attended the carnival, which is organized from start to finish by the school’s Grad Legacy Club, made up of Grade 12s.
“We started way back in November, with more than 100 volunteers running this, about 50 Grade 12s and 50 Grade 11s and some parents as well,” said club president Anthony Dy Ning.
“We’re hoping to raise at least $1,000, after costs are met.”
Throughout the year, the club fundraises for the charities such as Mission Possible, based in Vancouver, and Ratanak International, an organization that empowers women and assist survivors of human trafficking and exploitation in Cambodia.
