On February 10 2012, Abbotsford Christian School hosted its 3rd annual Gala under the guise of a “Spy Academy” theme. Our hilarious host, entertainer Austin Powers (Gery Schubert), led the guests in raising $17,000 for the school and specifically it’s Special Education Department. Not only did people raise money for ACS, but they were also entertained throughout the evening. Joining in on the fun for the evening was Abbotsford’s mayor, the Hon. Bruce Banman. Bruce did not disappoint as he was not only asked to join Pavarotti on stage for a part with the Three Tenors (along with Executive Director Julius Siebenga), but he also gave the guests a special treat for the evening with the singing of “Dream the Impossible Dream” from the musical Man of LaMancha. His song raised $1000.00 alone and was greeted by a standing ovation. Many of the esteemed guests were indeed an important part of the evening as a fair number of them were brought on stage for different acts, as ultimately everyone was there to raise funds for the school.
