McGill Cancer Auction raised close to $30,000 for Cancer Society


The McGill Cancer Auction Committee, co-chaired by Rosalie Lesser & Lindsay Lubov, had a record-breaking year after its event on Friday, raising close to $30,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. This year's auction items included flight tickets, spa gift certificates and Igloofest passes.

For the past 28 years, the McGill Cancer Auction has organized a live auction in January to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. This BCom student-run initiative works closely with members of the business community to gather items to auction off to support this great cause. Past sponsors include West Jet, Via Rail, Michael Kors, Tiffany & Co. and the Montreal Canadiens. In 2012, the Auction succeeded in raising over $20,000 and was awarded The Best Philanthropic Event Of The Year Award by the Management Undergraduate Society.
