CASCO’s “Showtime” Show Raises Record $58,864.42 for CHEO
On December 2, 2013, CASCO students took to the stage at the Delta Ottawa City Centre to raise a record breaking $58,864.42 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The theme of this year’s event was “Showtime” and the different numbers were tributes to well-known movies. Amanda Richardson, Creative Director of CASCO 2007, gave a touching speech about Professor Peter Koppel, highlighting how he touched so many lives through his involvement in CASCO as a mentor, but also as a performer. A special number was dedicated to him and his family.
For the past 14 years, CASCO has been a major event for the Telfer School of Management that is entirely choreographed, organized and executed by like-minded Telfer School students. It is a spectacular show of talent and philanthropy that brings together over 500 people including prominent community leaders and ambassadors for CHEO.
In preparation for this event, CASCO students spent countless hours auditioning, choreographing, and organizing this annual gala show that focuses on the talents of Telfer School students, and raises money for CHEO as well as a CHEO family in need.
The Telfer School remains very proud of its CASCO students for the time and energy that they focus on this event every year and the positive impact that they leave on our community.
