Cuppa for a cause
29 May 2011
Academic and professional staff of the University of Sydney Business School joined forces again this year to raise more than $1600 as part of the Cancer Council's annual fundraiser Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.
In 2010 over one million Australians shared a cuppa for the cause, raising close to $11 million. This year, the aim was to raise $12million nationally to help the one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer by age 85. Funds raised contribute to vital cancer research, education and support services.
Pearl Rozenberg, lecturer from the Discipline of Business Law reprised her role of enthusiastic organiser and auctioneer to ensure more than 100 prizes were delivered to lucky raffle winners.
Pearl said special thanks should go to Professors Tyrone Carlin and Michael McKenzie for continuing to support this worthy cause by donating many prizes and the refreshments enjoyed by all who attended. She said Associate Professor Philip Lee from the Discipline of Accounting and the students from Beta Alpha Psi were also instrumental in running the event and the raffle. Beta Alpha Psi is an international association for academically successful students majoring in accounting, finance or Information systems.
