 "Carousel of Christmas Cakes" Fundraiser

This week at the Centre for Nursing Studies, we organized a fundraiser called "Carousel of Christmas Cakes" for the Gathering Place. A number of faculty, staff and friends donated a homemade cake and we sold tickets on them. We raised a total of $650! Here are some pictures from this event.






The CNS thanks The Gathering Place for doing outstanding work in our community.
