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. Its not too late to donate items you dont
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 havent pledged through payroll,
please consider doing it its virtually painless, and so many
people need your generosity.
