Centraide Logo

Concordia’s Centraide 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 Harry Zarins.

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.
