PAST GCEF EVENTS

2016 Fall Appeal

 

The 2016 Fall Appeal raised over $18,000! Money raised during the Fall Appeal will continue to support educational programming that will reach every child at GUFS. 

 

Nearly all of our classes passed 50% in participation. Mrs. Earle and Mrs. D’Onofrio’s classes won the pizza contest with outstanding 94% & 77% parent participation rates, respectively. Donations to the Fall Appeal of $25 or greater also qualified students to put their names into the hat for the “Principal for a Day” raffle. 

2016 Spring Thaw


Our 17th Annual Spring Thaw at the Highlands Country Club in April raised over $30,000 which exceeded our fundraising targets and will bring many exciting programs to GUFS. Spring Thaw is GCEF’s largest fundraiser of the year and is a great community event that features silent auction items, dinner, dessert and live music.
