OLD BOYS RAISE $209,184 in 24 HOURS!

On 23 May 2018 the GTOBA led the inaugural Old Boys' Bursary Giving Day.  The goal - raise $100,000 in 24 hours to support a bursary place in the College Bursary program.  With the generosity of 3 matching donors, every $1 that an Old Boy donated meant that $4 was raised.  The $100,000 goal was eclipsed in just 96 minutes.

A lofty revised target of $200,000 was then put in place - the attainment of which would mean another bursary position.  

We made it - $209,184 from 254 donors!

The College and the GTOBA sincerely appreciate each and every donor.

Two trophies will be awarded in conjunction with the Old Boys' Bursary Giving Day - a trophy to the Year Group with the Highest Number of Donors and a trophy to the Year Group with the Highest Amount Raised.  Both trophies will be announced at the GTOBA Dinner, 11 August at The Norman Hotel (Private Bar).  The following year groups are in contention for each of the coveted trophies:
