Sizzling Start for United Way Campaign

A group of celebrity chefs served up hot dogs, veggie dogs and drinks on Tuesday, October 1, to kick off this year's campus United Way campaign.

From 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. students, staff and faculty purchased the barbequed fare. Celebrities donned United Way aprons and included Peterborough Mayor Sylvia Sutherland, United Way Executive Director Len Lifchus, United Way 2002 Campaign Chairs Sophie Cousins-Mathewson and Stan Mathewson, Trent President Bonnie Patterson and several other well-known people from the Trent community.

The goal of this year's campaign is $52,000 and enthusiasm is running high. Co-chairing the Trent campaign are Eric Helleiner and Rod MacDonald, and both men were pleased with the success of the first official campaign event.

Draws begin this week, as well, for staff, faculty or retirees who have returned their United Way pledge forms. There are many prizes this year, including a grand prize of a weekend for two at the Irwin Inn on Stony Lake.
