We so happy to announce that the Caesars Foundation, funded by the the world renowned Caesars Entertainment resorts and casinos, has contributed $30,000 towards scholarships for our members who are hoping to pursue higher education.  This grant will make a big difference to our Grade 12 students as they strive to continue their studies at colleges and universities.

The Caesars Foundation seeks to help organizations in their employees' local communities.  Our partnership with them will further the goals of both our organizations.  We are very grateful that our dream, to be able to send our matriculants to tertiary institutions without the heavy financial burdens that derail many from completing their education, is now within our grasp.  We sincerely thank the Caesars Foundation for their generous support of our tertiary education program.
