York Rose Ball: Thank You

On behalf of the York Rose Ball Committee, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the attendees, event sponsors and to the York House Community at large. Your participation in the event was crucial in helping raise funds to support school scholarships which provide students with the gift of a York House education. The live and silent auctions were an outstanding success made possible by both the generous donations from our community and those taking part in the live bidding. We will share the amount raised in the coming weeks once we have finalized the numbers, so stay tuned!

Make a Donation to support Cafeteria Upgrades at YHS
The school is planning improvements and refurbishments to make the cafeteria more inviting by installing new furnishings and replacing kitchen equipment. It’s not too late to support this important appeal. If you wish to make a one-time contribution—please contact Olivia Cook in the Advancement Office at 604.730.2415 / ocook@yorkhouse.ca. Donations of all sizes are appreciated and thank you for your support!
