Loyalist PR raises $1,200+ for United Way

Post-Grad PR students kicked off the Loyalist College fall campaign for the United Way yesterday by raising more than $1,200 in less than five hours.

With great enthusiasm and a flair for Halloween fashion, students engaged staff, faculty and other students in a campus-wide “Trick or Treat for United Way” event.

“The students looked great in their costumes and got me to buy a winning ticket that caused me to have a happy dance right on the spot!” says Doug Lafreniere, Professor & Academic Co-ordinator of the Fitness & Health Promotion Program at Loyalist College. “It was a fun and profitable day for the United Way. Kudos!”

Special thanks to the many corporate supporters who made this event possible, including: Walmart, Applebees, Starbucks, the Empire Theatre, the Belleville Bulls, Sunoco, Boston Pizza, The Spa at Loyalist, Office Depot, Club 213, Play It Again Sports, Chartwells and the Shark Tank Pub.

Great job, everyone!
