Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation (GPSG) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that organizes a substance-free Grad Night celebration for Granby Memorial High School (GMHS) graduates, is planning several fundraisers to help support the event.

The GPSG Committee is planning fundraisers at TJ’s Burritos in East Granby on March 28, and at Wayback Burgers in Granby on April 18. A portion of sales at both restaurants will go towards the event. Information on additional fundraisers will be forthcoming.

The party, which takes place the evening of June 9, can’t take place without volunteers to make it happen. The event is typically chaperoned by underclassmen parents, not the senior parents, so it is especially important for new volunteers to step up each year. Help is needed each year with food, room set up, decorations, chaperoning and other tasks. Volunteers are needed both in planning and preparation for the event and at the party itself.

Interested in sending a frolicking flock of flamingos to your friend’s front yard? Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation will surprise your friends with a “flocking” for a $30 donation. Email for more details or to order a flocking.

Cash donations are also welcome. To make a donation, please send checks payable to “Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation” to Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation, Attn: Asst. Treasurer, PO Box 81, Granby, CT 06035.

The committee also accepts donated raffle prizes. Anyone interested in donating prizes or volunteering at the party, can email .
