Golden Key Students Give to Cancer Research

February 2012

Students from McGill’s Golden Key Society recently presented the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre with a cheque for close to $1,000, the happy result of their fundraising efforts.

The students are part of a special fundraising team affiliated with the Golden Key Honor Society of McGill. They began their efforts a year ago, having decided to support Montreal-area charities. The team collaborated with the Macaroni Restaurant on St. Laurent and sold tickets on the McGill campus for a special Halloween party hosted by the restaurant. Ticket sales exceeded their expectations, enabling them to give a generous portion of the proceeds to basic cancer research.

The team continues to fundraise, dedicating itself to food drives and bake sales and other endeavours that support local causes.
