Steve Hnatiuk Fundraiser at the Horseshoe!

Many of you will remember James Cardinal McGuigan Beginning Teacher, Steve Hnatiuk, who died from cancer in January of this year. Our school community, like many of you, were quite devastated. Now is the time to once again get together, this time to celebrate his life, have a good time, win prizes and raise some money for a new student bursary acknowledging student excellent in athleticism and academics. Our staff is sure Steve would've liked that. So, some of our JCM teachers are holding a fundraiser this weekend. You can show up at the door, but should buy an advanced ticket. There could be a last minute rush. Steve sure had a lot of TCDSB friends! Please contact Julia Nobrega via our board email. You can also buy some lottery tickets to support the cause. Please see her message below;
On May 6th, join us for a celebration of Steve's life at the Horseshoe Tavern - 370 Queen Street West in Toronto. Join us for live music, prizes, drinks, good food, and most importantly, good friends.

Tickets - $25.00
Raffle tickets - 2 for $10 and 5 for $20

Our goal is to raise $30,000 - which will be used to create the Steven David Hnatiuk Memorial Award, an honour that will go to a graduating student at both schools he taught at. In addition to acknowledging the student for their excellence in academics and athleticism, we would like to also give a $1500.00 bursary that could be used towards post secondary education. $30,000 would give the award 10 years of life at both of the schools Steve taught at.
