Music trivia, 50–50 and pizza: Terry Fox Secondary calls for help for dry after-grad party

Parents of the 402 graduating Port Coquitlam students are hoping to raise $6,000.

Parents of graduating students at Terry Fox Secondary are hoping to raise $6,000 for the Port Coquitlam school's dry after-grad party through a music trivia night next week.

The event at the Riverside Community Church, which is now sold out, is one of several fundraisers this academic year for the parent committee, said co-chair Tabitha McLoughlin.

The group wants to bring in $35,000 for the Grade 12 celebration, to be held at Central City Fun Park in Surrey in the early morning hours of May 28; this year's class has 402 grads.

To date, it has collected about $15,000 through a 50–50 draw, food sales, pub nights, a bottle drive and Meridian Meats gift cards, said McLoughlin whose second son is graduating.

And, on April 19, the committee will team up with Boston Pizza in Port Coquitlam, with the school receiving 20 per cent on any order that’s placed using the code "Terry Fox Dry Grad."

As well, on May 1, it will launch its second 50–50 draw; check the school website for details.
