Books for bucks

The Concordia Volunteers’ Used Book Fair raised $6,079, thanks to the efforts of an army of people led by Barbara Barclay, Susan Hawke and Helen Eng. Thanks should also go to Ken Bissonnette, from the Bookstore, for helping to organize cash transactions.

The sale took place over two days on the mezzanine, and was always busy. All proceeds are donated to Campus Ministry’s Student Emergency Food Fund to provide short-term emergency assistance to students.

The organizers want to thank everyone who donated books — by the thousands. Those that were left over from the sale are being resorted, packed, sent to schools and vendors outside the city, or kept over for next year’s sale.

Golfing for Massimo

Bookstore employees John Fiorilli and Ken Bissonnette would like to thank Sylvie Lacelle, manager of Sodexho-Marriott at Concordia, for providing refreshments at the second annual Massimo Fiorilli Golf Tournament. They would also like to thank their union, CUSSU, for a contribution.

The tournament raised $12,000 to provide Massimo Fiorilli, who is John’s son and Ken’s nephew, with treatments that are not covered by medicare.
Massimo, who is nine years old, was born healthy, but at the age of four developed a medical problem that so far defies diagnosis. Breathing pure oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber seems to relieve his symptoms. Quebec does not have these facilities, and so Massimo has been taken several times to Ottawa and Vancouver for the therapy.
