On December 7, 2015, our CASCO students took to the stage at the Delta Ottawa City Centre and raised $58,023 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The theme this year was “Learning to fly” and had the audience travelling around the world to watch musical performances, fashion shows and high energy dance numbers.

Each year a CHEO family is represented at the Gala to share the evening, as well as their story. This year Devon and his family joined CASCO to share with the audience how they have benefited from the great work that CHEO can do thanks to the support of the community.

For the past 16 years, CASCO has been a major event for the Telfer School of Management that 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.
