Dry Grad – Purdy’s Chocolate and Bottle/Can Return-It Fundraiser


The Dry Grad Parent Committee is busy coordinating a fun and safe dry grad event for our 2023 graduation students.  This event follows the hotel dinner/dance in June 2023.

An important part of the Committee is fundraising to help pay for the costs of the venue, entertainment and food.


Please help us achieve our fundraising goal of $750 by ordering your holiday season chocolates through this Purdy’s Chocolates Fundraiser.  We earn 25% of all sales over $1,000.  So, the more chocolate you order, the more the Dry Grad Parent Committee receives to use towards the dry grad event.

Online order deadline:  Wednesday, November 16

Pick up date:  Thursday, December 8  from 2:30-5pm

Pick up location:  Cariboo Hill School main entrance
