Sheridan School of Business Council Beach Carnival is year-end fund-raiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Sheridan School of Business Council annual year-end Beach Pub Carnival fund-raiser netted $1000 for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Halton and two $500 scholarship for Sheridan Business students. Exciting events included a faculty pie tasting where hapless Sheridan Business faculty were invited to taste cream pies launched by highly accurate student hurlers.
Hungry pie throwers and faculty were fuelled by succulent $1.00 “tube steaks” and cold drinks served up by Mo Karima, and Gus Patel, third year Accounting student. Students and faculty also purchased raffle tickets for a gas BBQ. The afternoon activities were followed by a Beach Pub held in the Student Union Conexxion.
“Being a member of the Sheridan Business Student Council is an experience I will always remember. It was a wonderful way to get involved at Sheridan, meet new people and learn a lot all at the same time. Planning the year end Carnival and Pub Night was the most fun I have ever had at school. It was great to be able to work with others and see the end results of all our combined efforts, ” said Renata St. Clair, third year Marketing student and organizer of the event.
As a result of the generosity of many who purchased hot dogs, pie throws, raffle tickets and attended the Beach Pub in the evening, the Business Student Council will be donating $1000 to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Halton, as well as awarding two Scholarships of $500 each to two Business students who best meet the criteria of the “Student to Student” Business Scholarship. Associate dean Jon Jones was the lucky recipient of the BarBQ at the ticket draw at the Beach Pub.
