9th Annual Alumni Celebrity Roast

Over $70,000 Raised in 2019!

On behalf of the Saskatoon Public Schools Board of Directors, staff and organizing committee, we would like to sincerely thank you for your support of the Annual Alumni Roast held at Evan Hardy Collegiate on November 7, 2019. 

Tiffany Paulsen did a great job as our MC throughout the night, taking the opportunity to “roast” those in attendance with her comments about classroom sizes. Susan Ormiston delivered a powerful message about media today and tied it back to her days as a student at Evan Hardy. The beautiful harmonies of Solstice kept everyone’s toes tapping. The Honourable Don Morgan and Mike Couros did not disappoint, keeping the audience entertained with their comments and stories about Gordan Wyant. And, last but not least, our Roastee, the Honourable Gordan Wyant, closed the evening with his comments on the importance of education in our city and our province. Thank you to each of you for all that you contributed to make this event so successful.

Your support of the Foundation and events such as the Roast allows us to offer valuable programs and initiatives that are making a difference every day such as the following: 

  • Summer Reading Camps
  • Early Learner Tutor Program
  • Programs of Excellence
  • Cheer Crates

Once again, thank you for your generous support of our Foundation’s Alumni Roast. The success we achieve is the direct result of great people like you.
