Grad Fundraisers

It was six months of connecting, reaching out, planning and celebrating and in Rossland, Greater Trail, Fruitvale and beyond, we felt your support to help us create a “near as normal” Grad 2022 Weekend the students will remember!  


There were people that gave recyclables, bought Smokies pucks, dined out and supported “Give to Grad” at local restaurants, spontaneous 50/50 ticket sales at Trail Incredible Farmers Markets, a rainy carwash with dancing teens, smiles, laughter and crazy golf cart rides and teens volunteering and awesome golfers at the Inaugural Hawks Nest Crowe Classic Golf Scramble at Redstone… there were also incredibly generous businesses  who believed in our Grads and awesome volunteers who helped to plan to amazing auctions!  We know we already said 50/50 tickets - there was that too..not to mention a very happy winner and how can we forget the Grad Families who supported local businesses when they created and donated Grad Family baskets?  To all the organizations who made monetary donations, thank you for contributing to our youth!


Your generosity in so many ways will enable this Grad Parent Committee to hold a wonderful weekend full of new memories like the Grad Cavalcade Grad Parade at 2 pm on June 25/22 in downtown Trail!  The Graduating Class will also be proud to leave a legacy of their choosing at the end of their journey.


Please wait for information to be posted under the “Grad Weekend Activities” portion of the JL Crowe website and to be sent via email to Grad Families!


We will be proud to share our Thank You board the start of Grad Week on June 20th to show our
