King's exceeds its goal for United Way Campaign
February 25, 2013
King’s University College is proud to announce that it has exceeded its goal of $25,000 for the annual United Way Campaign, raising $25,764 to support those in need in our community.
“The King’s community is remarkable not only for its generosity but for its commitment to having record-setting fun during its United Way fundraising events,” says David Sylvester, Principal of King’s University College. “We are very proud that we were able to exceed our annual goal once again. I want to thank everyone who helped King’s help the United Way in helping our neighbours in London & Middlesex County.”
This year’s goal was achieved—and surpassed—thanks to King’s United Way committee made up of faculty, PAOA and staff association members. Members included Ayoub Yousefi, Catherine Turner, Kate Stephenson, Suzanne Book, Kylene Dube, Tiffany Riehl, Chris Bishop, and Andrew Jardine. While the bulk of the funds raised came from individual pledges, special events contributed to the total donation including the Soup Lunch and Dessert auction, the John Snyder mini-putt challenge, a silent auction, and post-it notes sold for loose change.
