Basketball tournament offers opportunity to take on cancer

Who knew that you could fight cancer by dribbling?

A team of students from the Odette School of Business have organized a three-on-three basketball tournament Saturday, March 16, as a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Every player in the Hoops4Change tournament will receive a gym bag and t-shirt, but only the winners will get the chance to take on local celebrities for the title!

Employee fundraising campaign hoping to repeat successes

Deb Dayus is proud of her work as a volunteer canvasser for the Annual Giving Program.

“The campaign most certainly has a clear and positive impact on the work we do, in the lives of our students, and the University of Windsor community as  whole,” the nursing professor told colleagues gathered Wednesday on the lawn outside Memorial Hall.

A lunch reception launched the 2012 campaign, which invites support from University employees for student scholarships, campus improvements, teaching and research programs.

May 24 reception to celebrate flowering of campus giving

In donating to the Annual Giving Program, UWindsor employees and retirees do more than support the specific causes most dear to them, says campaign chair Bruce Tucker. This year, they have made a concrete impact on campus beautification.

A reception May 24 to recognize participating donors will also mark the formal dedication of a garden bed that spells out the university’s appreciation.
