Five Fast Facts: SMCS Launches Big M 50/50

November 01, 2022

It’s here! A new initiative to support St. Michael’s College School (SMCS) has launched.

Over the last couple of years, the Office of Advancement has been reviewing user-friendly ways to continue engaging with the community while re-inventing how existing fundraising events are offered. As an extension of their findings, a simple, yet popular format took shape — announcing the inaugural Big M 50/50.

It will be one of several ways that we plan to outreach and engage our constituents in fundraising,” says Kimberley Bailey, Director of Advancement. “Raising funds for the Financial Assistance Programme remains a top fundraising priority for the school.”

500 tickets for $100
