Head shaves, silent auction and pie-in-the face activities at UBC
Date: Friday March 16
Time: 10 a.m. to noon,
Location: UBC campus, main courtyard
The Residence Life Staff at UBC -- students who offer advice, mentorship and other assistance to the 1,700 out-of-town students who live on the Okanagan campus – are holding a number of events this week to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.
For the third year running, the students are staging the Cut for a Cure event, which raises pledges for volunteers to have their heads shaved or styled. Last year’s event attracted 70 participants which raised $13,000. If this year’s $20,000 target is met, two female members of the Residence Life Staff have pledged to shave their heads in support.
There is also a silent auction of items donated by local merchants, pancake breakfasts, pie your residence advisor and dunk tank to round out the events.
