Project Graduation Campaign 2019

The Gilbert School Class of 2019 
Project Graduation
 

Dear Friends and Business Owners: 


We would like to provide our graduates with a safe, alcohol and drug-free party to celebrate all of their accomplishments and friendships at graduation. Project Gradation is such a memorable event and one that our graduates look forward to every year. We are asking for your support in helping to provide this event for our students. Your generosity is very much appreciated by the graduates, their parents and the members of our Project Graduation Committee. The cost of the night is approximately $150.00 per student and the event is funded solely by donations. All planning, fundraising and chaperoning for this event is done by volunteers. 

Thank you for your consideration in helping us to make this important evening possible. HELP US SAVE LIVES! 

Did you know that statistically the most dangerous night of a student's life is graduation night? The euphoria of graduation combined with drugs and/or alcohol and a car, can quickly turn an evening of celebration into a lifetime of regret and mourning. Project Graduation is an alternative. 

A chaperoned, all-night party for graduates with entertainment, activities, camaraderie and food! 

The entire evening is planned and carried out by the parents of our students, with the help and cooperation of The Gilbert School staff and the support of the community. In fact, community support is essential to the success of Project Graduation. This year will mark the 30th consecutive Project Graduation celebration for The Gilbert School graduates. These students are our future and our most valuable community resource. Your donation is essential in making The Gilbert School Project Graduation a success.

We truly need your support. Monetary donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.

Please send your donations to:
