2021 Concert for Classrooms Raises $150,000 with WCD as Print and Signage Sponsor
Founded by an Olympic Gold Medalist and a PhD Educator, Classroom Champions has a worthy mission—to empower children to thrive socially, emotionally and academically through the mentorship and mindsets of world-class Olympic and Paralympic athletes. The organization provides classrooms with live mentorship, technology and resources for teachers that make a real impact on students' lives.
On Friday, Nov. 5, the organization held its 7th annual Concert for Classrooms fundraiser in partnership with Mawer, featuring musicians Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express. The fun-filled evening raised over $150,000 for Classroom Champions with 100 percent of proceeds going directly to program funding.
