October 24, 2002 Good cooks raise funds for Centraide



A bake sale in disguise.

Highly successful fundraising took place Oct. 31 in Bishop Court and the GM Building, as hungry office workers flocked to take advantage of some delicious cooking. The proceeds went to Centraide, the umbrella organization that raises operating funds for about 250 Montreal-area charities.

CASA (Commerce and Administration Students’ Association) threw a big Halloween party, and proceeds went to Centraide. The ECA (Engineering and Computer Science Students Association) held their annual Loony Line Nov. 5 outside the Hall Building.

The Concordia Centraide committee is planning a big bazaar on Wednesday, Nov. 20 in the LB atrium. It’s not too late to donate items you don’t want but somebody else might. Bring your contributions to the Information Desk in the Hall Building lobby.

You will soon be able to adopt a cuddly university administrator, thanks to the Teddy Bear Drive, taking place in the GM lobby on Nov. 14, from 11:30 to 2:30. Ten Concordia teddy bears, each donated by a senior administrator, are up for sale, as are a number of other teddies. Donations are still being accepted for this unusual fundraiser. Please contact Mona Senecal, -2721, or bring your donation to GM-201.

The Concordia Centraide thermometer has gone up to around $70,000 in pledges. The goal is $100,000, and there are several weeks to go. If you haven’t pledged through payroll, please consider doing it — it’s virtually painless, and so many people need your generosity.
