Dear Parents, Staff and Friends of Vancouver College;
It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to Vancouver College’s 37th Annual Finnegan Ball. First of all, we must begin with a personal and heartfelt “thank-you” to each and every one of you for supporting our efforts with your attendance. In addition, the outpouring of support we receive from the VC administration, the VCPA, individual parents and the greater business community who do so much to advance our aim to provide a celebratory, unforgettable evening is overwhelming. A word of gratitude goes out to our sponsors, donors and advertisers. As well, thank-you in advance for your generous financial contributions towards our various money raising efforts tonight.
This year’s Finnegan Ball is a true celebration of Vancouver College’s past and present but, most especially, its future. We are grateful for the work of countless individuals who have made Vancouver College the unparalleled faith and learning community our sons currently enjoy. Looking forward, we are beyond excited for the redevelopment plans that are in motion to replace the school’s oldest buildings and provide leading edge education, taking advantage of the latest technologies and philosophies available. Through this comprehensive plan, Vancouver College will continue to positively impact the lives of boys to young men in all ways academic, spiritual, intellectual, athletic, social and emotional for decades to come.
Finally, we are indebted to our incredible legion of volunteer parents who give so tirelessly of their time and resources to make this evening come together. Vancouver College is truly blessed to have the best parent community known to humankind! Tonight would not be possible without the hard work and dedication brought to the creation of this event by our gifted and energetic volunteers.
Semper Fidelis and have a wonderful evening!
