CASCO (The Commerce and Administration Student Charity Organization) is a student-driven charity whose purpose is to raise money for a local children’s hospital. The charity would allow business students to integrate their knowledge for a good cause and demonstrate social responsibility.
Twelve years ago, the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University opened a chapter of CASCO to support The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. The McGill Chapter now hosts an annual dance and fashion show, with a silent auction, each year in November that involves student performers from across McGill’s campus.
Last year, CASCO raised close to $20,000 to support the brand new Montreal Children’s Hospital. This new site, with its close proximity to other medical locations such as the new Shriner’s Hospital allows healthcare professionals to work closely and collaborate. This year, all funds will continue to support this new site and complete the Montreal Children’s Hospital’s mission to ensure a “kid friendly” environment where dreams of health, life and treatment can come true.
With a target of $12,000 – CASCO will be hosting its annual dance show and silent auction on November 16th with the theme of “Coast to Coast”. Held at the l’Astral Theatre, this years show features numerous different styles of dance from Salsa to Contemporary styles – all choreographed and performed by students from McGill University.
All proceeds from the show and auction go to help the children and hospital, so if you would like to attend the performance or donate to CASCO – any support is greatly appreciated.
