Chili Cook Off
By: Darian Gropp
The United Way was at Fanshawe Wednesday for the annual chili cook off fundraiser. A fee of five dollars is asked from all participants, all proceeds go to the Fanshawe United Way campaign.
From 11-1 anyone can come and enjoy a sample of a variety of chili recipes with some bread and drinks.
Fanshawe’s President Peter Devlin was there to support the campaign and says it’s such a magical organization to contribute to. He was also urging all students who were at the campaign to take part in the Scotiabank Stair Climb fundraiser on November 5.
On behalf of Fanshawe Jackie Corby was chosen to be a sponsored employee for the next four months. She says the need for United Way will continue to grow and Fanshawe will continue to support their cause.
“Last year United Way helped 85,000 lives in the London Middlesex area” says CEO of United Way, Andrew Locke. The $110,000 goal this year “will make it possible that we can meet that need in our community.”
With huge contributing companies like Kellogg’s closing, it becomes a challenged to reach set goals like this one. United Way will continue to work hard at each campaign in order to fit the needs of the London district.
