Libin Wins Institute Challenge for Faculty United Way Campaign

The University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine raised more than $10,000 for the United Way Campaign this year, tripling last year’s fundraising amount. Events were hosted by various Institutes within the faculty for a friendly challenge to see who could raise the most money at their event for a good cause.

Libin is the winner of the Institute Challenge with the final tally of 3,114 points. The success is due to team efforts at events including the United Way BBQ in September, sales from the official history book launch of Hearts, Minds & Vision: Roots of the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta and raffle proceeds from a handmade quilt crafted by Libin staffers who put in more than 80 hours to make the piece for the Black Friday Market in November.
