Dry Grad Fundraising

Some Langley secondary schools are fundraising through the Foundation to support their graduating students and Dry Grad Celebrations!

Dry Grad – A dry grad is an all-night supervised party for graduating students and their guest. Absolutely no alcohol or other drugs, including tobacco, are allowed. Grad Committees across Langley are planning an unforgettable, safe, and event-filled evening to commemorate the end of their K-12 journey.

To make their Dry Grad as memorable as possible, parent volunteers/committees are seeking support to provide grads with an amazing night.
