What began as one Telfer student’s passion for skateboarding turned into a $1,000 fundraising reality for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Daniel Gauthier, a first year business student and avid skateboarder, teamed up with CASCO, to execute a skateboard demonstration and BBQ, held on October 11th. The demonstration was displayed in front of the new Faculty of Social Sciences building. Despite the chilly October breeze, crowds of students stopped by the event to enjoy some delicious BBQ, amazing music, and a group of talented young people showcasing their talent. Raffle tickets were also being sold and awesome prizes were being handed out, courtesy of Top of the World, HAVOC Skateshop, Antique, and The Temple Skateboard Co. The event proved to be successful, and will hopefully become an annual one!  Read more ›
