On December 1, 2014, CASCO students took to the stage at the Delta Ottawa City Centre and raised a record breaking $66.530 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The theme of this year’s event was “A Red & White Affair” in honour of the success of Canadian artists and philanthropists.
For the past 15 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. This year the team paid tribute to past CASCO presidents and members and attendees got the opportunity to meet this year’s CASCO family who expressed immense gratitude towards CHEO, without who the young Leo would not have made it.
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.
