Who says money can't get a date?
On Saturday, February 28, the Rez-Wide Programming Committee hosted a Bachelor-Bachelorette Auction in the Pitman Cafeteria with the goal of raising money for SOS Children's Villages, a non-profit charity organization that helps support underprivileged children from around the world.
A total of 26 brave volunteers put themselves on the auction block in front of a crowd of over 100 residents. Successful bidders won the opportunity to snatch a gift card from a variety of sponsors (including the CN Tower, Grill Time, Starbucks, etc.) to use on their "date". The event raised over $1200 dollars for SOS Children's Villages!
The organizers hope this will become a new tradition for Ryerson Residence.
