Invested Students: The Birthday Bonanza
One of the most highly fought for items at the Play for the Park Gala silent auction back in May 2017 was "Bob's Birthday Bonanza!" What makes it a bonanza? Our very own Bob Hayes will host a birthday party for up to 25 children in Canada Hall where anything and everything can happen. This lucky grade 4 boy got to celebrate his birthday with his older brother and his classmates while Mr. Hayes organized a Tug of War, a mad-cap ball game where the only rule is there are no rules, and a printer paper figure skating race. Best birthday ever!
But this student wanted to give even more. He set up his birthday on Canada Helps
so that instead of receiving presents, his friends all made donations to the Invest in Play Campaign in his honour.
