United Way Fundraiser 2019

November is United Way Fundraiser Month at TIES, and this year’s campaign was a huge success!

This year, we raised a total of $1764.94 for United Way of Calgary and Area.

Staff, students, and volunteers took part in an exciting schedule of fundraising events at all three of our locations, including:

  • Candygrams
  • Guess Candy and Win
  • Bake Sales
  • Jeans Week
  • TIES Marketplace, where students set up booths for all kinds of wares, including clothing, jewellery and homemade cooking
  • TIES Talent & Fashion Show, which showcased students’ cultural clothing, musical talents and traditional dances

We were especially impressed by the dedication of our students. They dressed up for the fashion show, prepared homemade food for the Marketplace & Bake Sales, and 9-year old artist Hana even sold her paintings to benefit the fundraiser.

Thank you to staff, volunteers, teachers and students for your participation!
