Cambrian College students and Chris MacDonald (Toronto) who’s the winner of a custom 50th-anniversary edition Chevrolet Camaro 2SS convertible have a lot to celebrate now that an ambitious and effective 50th-anniversary fundraiser for student bursaries has wrapped up.
The fundraiser was a way to put much-needed funds into the hands of students in financial need while celebrating Cambrian’s 50th anniversary.
The grand prize winner was selected through a random draw held at a community BBQ and celebration on campus.
The fundraising initiative raised $80,000, which will be distributed by the Cambrian College Foundation to students through scholarships and bursaries.
“This fundraiser was an exceptional initiative that highlights our focus on supporting student access to postsecondary education,” says Cambrian College President Bill Best. “It was made possible thanks to dedicated volunteers and our 50th Anniversary Committee Co-Chairs, Rick Fedec and Kathy Wells-McNeil, and our sponsors: Crosstown Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC, as well as additional local businesses and media partners, who boosted ticket sales and promotion. We are so proud to see the results of this collaborative effort – an exciting initiative that has created a lot of buzz and will directly benefit our students.”
The Camaro fundraiser is one of many initiatives planned to highlight Cambrian’s 50th anniversary. Members of the 50th Anniversary Committee include:
On December 14, 2016, the College unveiled its plans to raffle off a custom 50th-anniversary Chevrolet Camaro 2SS convertible, valued at $64,400, in partnership with Crosstown Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC. Cambrian and Collège Boréal organized a 50th-anniversary community clean-up in June and Cambrian will unveil a 50th-anniversary time capsule installation next month.
