Community News – Phanton Screens raises $20,000 for UFV Halq’eméylem Language course scholarship

The results are in, we did it!! We raised $20,000 for our “to Cut or Not to Cut” hair fundraiser.

With your help we were able to establish a named endowment to support a scholarship in perpetuity for the University of the Fraser Valley’s Indigenous Language course, the Halq’eméylem of the Stó:lō people. This means that one student, every year, forever, will receive a scholarship of $750! And because we raised more than our goal, some years two students may receive awards, or eventually students might receive a $1,000 award instead.

How AWESOME is that?!

Now for the news you are all awaiting, drum roll please …… the winner is, team Cut the hair!!


As promised, Stephen, Jeret, and Brandon got their hair cut, at Phantom on Wednesday, October 6th at 2:15pm.

Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us achieve our goal. You are part of something that will last forever!
