This October, in the spirit of giving and thankfulness, the Bissett School of Business is putting forth a challenge for each department (Accounting/Finance, General Management/HR/Aviation, Entrepreneurship/Marketing/Social Innovation) to raise funds for the United Way Calgary.
The premise of the challenge is to collect pledges and sponsor a faculty/staff member or a student to Sing or Dare in the Atrium on Thursday, October 29th, 2015 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM. (Refreshments will be provided).
If the entertainment value alone is not enough to motivate you, there will be two prizes awarded: One to the area raising the most money and the second prize to the area with the highest number of participants/sponsors.
The United Way Calgary’s mandate is to drive social change in three focus areas: Poverty, Kids and Community. We encourage faculty, students and staff to accept the challenge and foster team-building and community here at Bissett.
Pledge forms can be picked up at Reception (EB2005).
