As your Faculty of Medicine’s 2013 Centraide representatives we are excited to start the fundraising season with a bang!

This year’s Centraide campaign began October 1st and runs until December 1st. During this time we will be asking you, our Faculty of Medicine colleagues to participate in several fundraising activities for this worthy cause.

Want to bake?

We will be holding three bake sales.  All bake sales will take place at the McIntyre Building, outside the 5th floor cafeteria. The first on Friday, November 8th, the second, Friday, November 15th and the third and final bake sale Friday, November 22nd.

We are asking for your participation by contributing baked goods in support of the Centraide campaign. If you would like to make something we would ask that you make a dozen, with an ingredient list. All items will be sold for $1 / $2 apiece and each bake sale will run from 11:30am to 1:00pm.

Jeans Day!

Similar to last year, for the month of November you are invited to wear jeans every Friday. For a donation of $5 you can wear your jeans and show your support!  “Jean Fridays” may be purchased in advance or on the actual day. An early bird special running from Monday, October 28th and Friday November 1st is available for those who want to purchase “Jean Fridays” for the five Fridays in the month of November at 5 Fridays at the price $20.00. Please hand-in your money to your supervisor or contact Tasha Ayinde or Leo Teatero for drop-off/pick-up.

We look forward to seeing you over the next weeks and thank you for supporting this year’s Centraide campaign! If you are able to volunteer for any of the events please let us know – any and all help is appreciated.
