Last year, George created the Patriots Scholarship, an in-house scholarship fund benefiting our high-achieving, low-income students who need a little more assistance to make their dream of college a reality. In the first year, we were able to raise over $2,500, a goal we hope to double this year.
On March 19 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm, we are hosting a night of food, drink, music, and comedy at Curious Theater in Denver, with all proceeds benefiting our Patriot Scholars. For $30 a ticket, or two for $50, you receive dinner, beer (compliments of Dry Dock Brewing Company), comedy from the student improv troupe, Pandamonium, and from the long-form troupe, tree, as well as music from a student band, ReWritten, and our teacher band, The String Resistance. Tickets can be purchased with cash or check (made out to Patriots Scholarship Fund) at the door the day of the event or by calling the GWHS treasurer, Kelly Vigil, to set up payment with a credit card. If you cannot make the event, but still wish to donate, please contact Ms. Vigil. All donations are tax-deductible, so you will receive a letter of thanks with your donated amount as proof.
If you’re planning to attend on March 19, please RSVP HERE. Thank you for supporting GW’s scholars!
