United Way Blitz – October 31st to November 3rd

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Last year Schulich Medicine & Dentistry was the top faculty for total money raised at Western, and we managed to do so with only 7% participation. Imagine what we can accomplish this year just by doubling our number of participants.

Get involved and show your support. Here is a list of the events on tap during our United Way Blitz:

Come down to the MSB lobby from 9:30 - 10:30 for your morning coffee break and help support the United Way. $2 for a coffee and a cupcake!
