L.V. Rogers Class of 2016 hosts Super Bowl party

The Feb. 7 bash will help fund raise graduation weekend.

The L.V. Rogers class of 2016 is hosting a Super Bowl party to fund raise its graduation weekend.

The L.V. Rogers Class of 2016 is counting down to an exciting graduation weekend in June and reaching out to the community to help make the major milestone a huge success.

Graduation weekend is slated for June 10 to 12 when family and friends will celebrate the achievement with the Class of 2016. As part of the fundraising effort required to make it happen, the parent grad committee is hosting a Super Bowl LVR grad burger and beverage fundraiser at Finley’s Bar and Grill in Nelson on Sunday, Feb. 7.

“This is one of the major fundraisers we have planned,” says LVR parent grad committee member Holly Jordahl. “It’s a fun way to invite the community to make a contribution to this year’s graduation by watching football and enjoying a nice afternoon.”

The Super Bowl Sunday party gets underway at 3 p.m. with the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers vying for NFL football supremacy. A ticket gets you a burger and beverage, but there will also be draw prizes, fun games and a silent auction to compliment the afternoon festivities.

“Football is the focus and we are grateful to Finley’s for allowing us to hold this fundraiser,” says Jordahl. “But you don’t have to be a football fan to come out and enjoy the party. We are planning a great event and it will be a nice way to celebrate community.”

Tickets are available in advance at Kokanee Camera Co. (550 Baker St.) or at the door.
