Nechako Lakes North School District 85 has received $8,882 from the BC Liquor Store’s ‘Support Dry Grad’ campaign

Nechako Lakes North School District 85 has received $8,882 from the BC Liquor Store’s ‘Support Dry Grad’ campaign to support alcohol-free high school graduation celebrations in their communities.

• A total of $540,692 has been donated by BC Liquor Store customers to support high schools across B.C. that are planning alcohol-free graduation events.

• The campaign is part of the Liquor Distribution Branch’s corporate social responsibility program to promote the responsible use of alcohol beverages – a program that includes the prevention of underage drinking and promotion of zero consumption for minors.

• These funds will help local high school Dry Grad committees plan alcohol-free graduation events and activities such as boat cruises, ski trips and dances.

• The contributions by liquor store customers supplement funds raised by parents, students and teachers who volunteer year-round to raise funds for dry grads.

“This year’s campaign success was driven by caring community members who wanted to help support safe, memorable celebrations for our community’s youth. I’d like to congratulate this year’s graduates and wish them all the best of luck for the future.” said Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad
