campaign for charities was highly successful this year. A total of $65,014
was raised a 50-per-cent increase over last year, and way beyond
the goal of $56,000.
There were 310 donors, a 38-per-cent increase over last year, and $4,695
of the total was raised through special events. One of the great incentives
for giving was the weekly draw, for many prizes, ranging all the way up
to airfare for two to Florida.
Many of the ideas and work were provided by the Centraide committee: Ann
M. Bennett, Barbara Black, Bill Curran (co-chair), Barbara Harris, Danielle
Morin, Patricia Posius (co-chair), Lorraine Toscano, Frances Weller and
Thanks also due to Jane Scribner and Gerry Jones from Human Resources,
Yvon Bellefeuille, our representative from Centraide, and other volunteers,
including students from Engineering and Computer Science.
