For the 18th edition, the annual CASCO Gala brought together wonderful musical, fashion and dance performances, raising an impressive $63,506.67 for The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). “The success of the event comes from great collaboration, and we would like to particularly thank our title sponsor Fahel & CO, the Infinity Convention Centre for hosting our gala for the first time, Co-Founder Tuan Nguyen, and Amanda Richardson, our Faculty advisor at the Telfer School of Management” said Conor O’Doherty, President of CASCO, the Telfer School’s Student Charity Organisation.
“I am extremely proud of all the work everyone on CASCO has put into our 18th Annual Gala. Our cast managed to put together an incredibly impressive show at a brand new venue and our Executive team has worked for over 11 months to make sure this was one of our highest donations to CHEO”, added Conor.
For the past 17 years, CASCO has been a major event for the Telfer School of Management, which has raised more than $500,000 in funds to date. CASCO is entirely choreographed, organized and executed by like-minded Telfer School students. In recent years, students from other faculties have joined, as performers, in what became a spectacular show of talent and philanthropy that brings together over 500 people including prominent community leaders and ambassadors for CHEO.
In preparation for this event, CASCO students spent countless hours auditioning, choreographing, and organizing this annual gala show to raise money for CHEO. The Telfer School of Management and the wider University of Ottawa community remain very proud of students who decide to commit time and energy on this event every year for the positive impacts that they leave on our community
