Loyola High School in Montreal, Canada, has hosted two fundraisers this fall, with the hopes of raising money for its financial aid program. The events were both huge successes, raising a combined total of $335,000 for the Loyola High School Foundation.

On September 29th, the private all-boys high school hosted its 17th Annual Loyola High School Foundation Golf Tournament at the Royal Montreal Golf Course. The tournament drew in over 200 golf participants and raised $240,000. The event had 84 sponsors; among them were Broccolini, Coveloz and more.

Every year, Loyola High School also organizes a hockey raffle. This year, the raffle raised approximately $95,000! Students were encouraged to sell raffle tickets, which cost $20 each. And, the winner of the raffle received a pair of season tickets to see the Montreal Canadiens play.

The money that was raised at these events will be used to fund the financial aid which will be granted next year.
