Confederation College had a Hoot supporting its students!
On Thursday Jan 28, 2021, Confederation College celebrated the 25th anniversary of its Community Partners’ Evening with a drive through pick up of ‘Have a Hoot’ boxes in support of bursaries and scholarships for students.
The event is usually held in the fall but due to COVID-19 restrictions and the public not being allowed on campus, the event was moved to a drive through.
160 boxes were given out, which included a charcuterie board prepared by students in the culinary management program and items by local and Alumni producers and vendors.
“I was so excited. I’ve gone to this event every year for years and I was really sad that they were going to have to cancel it, but when they did this I thought this is awesome because now I can do this at home and it will be really great,” said Bonnie Moore, a fundraising consultant.
Over $27,000 was raised to support Student Awards and Bursaries, which is on par with what is raised through the annual in-person event. Even more funds were raised through an online art auction following the event.
Thank you to all who Gave a Hoot!
