9th Annual Alumni Celebrity Roast

Over $70,000 Raised! 

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.

8th Annual Alumni Celebrity Roast 


Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation was delighted to host its 8th Annual Alumni Celebrity Roast
on November 1, 2018 at  Mount Royal Collegiate.

This year's event honoured notable Saskatoon Public Schools alumni Zeba Ahmad, an Evan Hardy Collegiate graduate, Executive Director of the Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation, and local community builder. We also honoured business leader, Greg Yuel,  a Mount Royal Collegiate alumni, president of PIC Investment group, and avid supporter of the Saskatoon community.

Each year the Alumni Celebrity Roast brings together nearly four hundred guests, which includes some of Saskatoon Public Schools' most distinguished graduates, for an evening of entertainment and light-hearted humour to benefit the Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation. Proceeds from the Alumni Celebrity Roast are used to fund unique educational opportunities that go above and beyond for the students.  Because of the generous support we received this year, more than $60,000 was raised to enhance learning opportunites for students throughout the Saskatoon Public Schools Division!Thank you to Sponsors.PNG
