Back to the 80's!
The 30th Grand Celebration | March 3, 2018
This year we are turning back time to the 80’s!Dust off your Members Only jackets, leg warmers, and fingerless gloves...grab your parachute pants and practice your"Thriller"
moves for a night full of cheers and fun! Come dance with us all night long on March 3, 2018 at Good Counsel.
Grand Celebration is an important event for strengthening the connection that parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends have to our school. Your presence matters because the money we are able to raise during this fun evening makes a visible and direct impact on the quality of student life.
In 2017, the Funds for Our Falcons live appeal at Grand Celebration raised around $95,000 to make improvements to the dining hall and servery. Mission accomplished! There are three clear outcomes from last year's live appeal: greater efficiency; better stewardship of the environment; and more dining options. It's clear that the generosity of last year's participants has yielded a better daily experience for every person at Good Counsel.
What are we raising funds for this year?
Three decades of Grand Celebration calls for three fundraising targets:
- This summer, we will merge two classrooms into one STEM/Science lab. We ask for your support to purchase mobile science lab furniture and equipment to outfit the new lab.
- We have the only Marching Band in the WCAC. The "Pride of GC" badly needs a makeover. We ask for your support to purchase new Band uniforms.
- Lastly, the Falcon mascot is in a sorry state. We ask for your support to purchase a new Falcon mascot costume.
In short, a successful 2018 Funds for Our Falconslive appeal will help our students in academics, in arts, and school spirit. Let's make the 30th year the most we've ever raised for our live appeal!
