Not bad for a bunch of “University kids” on just another “Pub Crawl”.
Well we had many doubters but we managed to prove them wrong with an excellent turnout and even better numbers in the final tally of funds raised. I still remember the first year we put this thing together in 2003, only 42 people showed up and we barely broke $800, which seemed like a big accomplishment at the time.
This year we had about 160 turn out. So, drum roll… here’s the final amount:
An extra special thanks to Sebastien, Chris and everyone at StatsCanada – Census’06 office in Moncton, the team there raised almost $1000 alone!
Other big money raises, contributors and organizers were Danielle Bourque, Nataelle Levesque, Nadine Boudreau, Mandy Alward, Ruairi Meagher, Jason Tse, Laura Murphy (my nana), my parents Laura and Richard Copeland, and many others.
So a BIG thanks goes out to everyone! And if you requested tax receipts you should receive them from CBCF within the next 4 weeks. If you don’t get one but requested it, please let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org
