BC Liquor Stores (BCLS) customers have raised more than $275,000 for dry grad.
Langley raised $6,480 of the $275,000 making it the third most successful fundraising BC Liquor Store in 2018.
The Support Dry Grad campaign, which ran from March 4-31, has helped about 52,000 Grade 12 students enjoy their graduation celebrations in a safe, alcohol-free environment.
“Providing opportunities for young people to enjoy alcohol-free graduation celebrations is a great cause, and one that the team at Westwood Centre BC Liquor Store is proud to support,” said BCLS Westwood Centre store manager Sean Mckenzie.
This year’s campaign supported more than 270 high schools throughout the province.
The donations raised by BCLS go to schools in the district where the store is located, and are distributed to public schools and independent schools that are participating in the campaign.
Liquor Distribution Branch general manager and CEO Blain Lawson expressed his gratitude: “We are thrilled by the level of support BC Liquor Stores’ customers have shown for this year’s Support Dry Grad campaign.”
