Put Another Fiver on the Barbie . . .

UBC United Way Campaign kicks off Sept. 22

The 2004 UBC United Way Campaign kicks off with a great BBQ later this month on Wednesday, Sep. 22. A burger and pop costs only $5 at SUB from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. and all proceeds go to the United Way of the Lower Mainland, an umbrella organization that provides funding to a number of community organizations supporting social services across the Lower Mainland.

“Come out and join us for the Kick-off BBQ,” says Stan Auerbach, a lecturer with the Faculty of Education, who will chair the campaign this year. “We have some surprises up our sleeves and we guarantee you'll have a good time.”

As in previous years, volunteers were busy in August planning the campaign activities.

Thanks to the generosity of the campus community, last year’s campaign exceeded the goal of $500,000 by $11,000. “We want to continue to build on that outstanding success by increasing the awareness of United Way throughout the campus,” says Auerbach.

“One way of doing this is increasing the number of volunteers in the campaign. This is a great opportunity for staff, faculty and students to build their leadership, public speaking and event planning skills.”

For more information on the campaign, the kick-off event or how to get involved, contact Liz King, UBC United Way Campaign Coordinator, at 604-822-8929 (UBC-UWAY), e-mail united.way@ubc.ca or check out the Web site at www.unitedway.ubc.ca.
