Last chance to support NC’s 2017 United Way Campaign


Time is running out to support the College’s 2017 NC Cares United Way Campaign. Together we’ve raised $31,504.25 to date!

With only a few days left until our campaign wrap up on December 14, we’re hoping to make one final push to help us reach our campaign goal of $40,000! Every dollar counts.

Those who donate before December 14, including those who have previously donated, will have a chance to win some fabulous Grand Prizes, including:

  • A Niagara Helicopter Ride for two (Helicopter Prize – United Way);
  • A six-month parking pass starting Sept. 1, 2018 (non-transferrable);
  • Dinner for two at NC’s award-winning Benchmark restaurant;
  • Hornblower’s Falls Fireworks Cruise in Niagara Falls for four guests.

Grand Prize winners will be announced following the campaign wrap-up on December 14 at the President’s Holiday Reception.

“We are proud of our College’s support for the United Way of South Niagara which plays a vital role in our community, and we thank all staff and faculty who have generously donated,” said campaign co-chairs Greg Medulun (VP, External Relations) and Gary Torraville (associate dean, CFWI).

“We encourage those who are able, to consider contributing to our 2017 campaign and to help us continue our College’s strong tradition of support for our community.”
