Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff is urging people to support this year’s Support Dry Grad campaign by making a donation at any B.C. Liquor Store.
Contributions by liquor store customers and staff will add to the money raised by parents, students and teachers for the alcohol-free grad celebrations.
Last year, liquor stores within the Okanagan Skaha School District contributed $6,906 to dry grad events.
This year’s campaign continues until March 30.
“There is no prouder moment for a parent than the graduation of your children,” Barisoff said.
“The Dry Grad campaign ensures that our young adults’ graduation will be safe and inclusive.”
For more than a decade, the Support Dry Grad campaign in B.C. Liquor Stores has been in place.
Last year’s campaign raised more than $540,000 across the province.
