Around the campus, volunteer
fundraisers are coming up with fun ideas to raise cash and awareness of
Centraide, the lifeline for 250 Montreal community agencies.
Under the leadership of Frances Weller, IITS had its second annual Pizza
Lunch and raised more than $200.
Recreation and Athletics has been passing the bucket at Stingers
football games. They have raised $535 at two games so far.
The big squeegee squeeze took place outside the parking garage last Thursday
morning, and it started very early, at 6:30 a.m.
The first person to drive into the garage was a student, and she
was startled when I jumped out to wash her windows, said Patricia
Posius, who organized the scrub session.
She had a great team with her: Allyson Noftall, Nadia Magliano, Roberto
Chen-Rangel, Bill Curran, Lorraine Toscano and Steven Zulkarnian. Their
vigorous efforts raised $375.
A squeegee day is being held this morning in the Bryan parking lot at
Ann M. Bennett reports that we need to receive more pledges to achieve
our modest goal of 15-per-cent participation. Be generous. Your contribution
to Centraide through a payroll deduction may be little more than the cost
of a cup of coffee (and do you need more coffee?), but it could put a
smile on a childs face, or help a single mother hang on for another
Heres a reward for your generosity. Harry Zarins, Director of Recreation
and Athletics, is giving every Centraide donor two tickets to three games
on Saturday, November 11. At 2, the Stingers play Laval in womens
basketball; at 3, the hockey team plays Ottawa, and at 4, the mens
basketball team plays Laval. Tickets will arrive by internal mail to all
