Spend a night in Paris

On February 5, spend “A Night in Paris” for $20, and support two local charities at the same time.

“A Night in Paris” is the theme for this year’s annual Charity Ball, one the University’s most successful student-led fundraising campaigns. Each year, the organizing committee chooses two charities to which to donate. Each charity is guaranteed a $5,000 donation. This year, the committee has selected Champions for Children and the Wild Bird Care Centre in Ottawa.

Champions for Children is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect. The Wild Bird Care Centre is a registered charity that treats and rehabilitates sick, orphaned, or injured wild birds before releasing them back into the wild.

“The goal of the annual Charity Ball is to support some of the charities that contribute so much to the community, but are sometimes overlooked by major funding agencies,” says Amanda Sheane, Chair of the Charity Ball planning committee. “It’s also a great night for people to dress up, have fun, and break through the winter blahs.”

This year, the Ball will feature live bands, including local band Siobhan, and Carleton band Tweak. Tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased at Information Carleton on the fourth floor of the University Centre, or through Ticket Master at 755-1111. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the event for $25. The event takes place at the Congress Centre beginning at 8:00 p.m.

The committee is still looking for volunteers, and has a number fundraising activities planned in January. For more information, go to: carleton.ca/charityball
