UBC leads way once more in charity giving

UBC is once again among the top Lower Mainland organizations in the United Way category of Leaders of the Way with 60 donors who contributed $1,000 or more.

Although at $292,511 total campaign contributions fell just shy of the goal of $310,000, 1997 Campaign Chair Peter Nault praised UBC's United Way volunteers.

"This group of people should be proud to have achieved so much so quickly."

UBC also was among the top organizations in the Discoverer category--those with donors who contribute $500 or more.

Asian Studies Prof. Emeritus John Howes was the winner of the campaign's grand prize -- a trip for two to any Canadian Airlines destination.
