S.A.G.A Group from Garden City Collegiate, WInnipeg, Mb, Canada print story
April 23, 2012
The Social Awareness and Global Aid group from Garden City Collegiate, Winnipeg Manitoba held a Fundraiser event called A Taste of South America raising awareness and support for San Gabriel School. It was a wonderful night of jazz music performed by members of the group and guest performance by the chamber choir. Approximately 80+ guests came to support the cause and was treated to a dinner of quinoa, empanadas, roasted potatoes and a variety of dessert.
The members of our S.A.G.A group shared their experiences and gave parents and other family members more of an idea what they have been working on. The entire night raised over $1000 for the students and the school.
