Special Post: CASCO

The Commerce and Administration Student Charity Organization (CASCO) is a student-driven initiative that raises money to support the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation. This was my first year being a part of the CASCO committee, and it was an absolute pleasure to work closely with so many philanthropic youth, truly dedicated to making a difference.  

 Every year the students on CASCO organize a Charity Fashion/Dance Show and a Silent Auction. This year, the 12th annual show was held at L’Astral, a beautiful theatre downtown and featured performances by Dance Pack, Mosaica, Urban Groove, Brosaica and of course the CASCO Committee themselves! Each performance took the audience through different parts of the world in collaboration with this year’s theme: Coast to Coast.

 The dancers modeled clothing from some of Montreal hippest boutiques and designers including: Dom Rebel, Kollontaï, Top Belle Pour Toi, Billie, Valérie Dumaine, American Apparel, Annie 50, & Lustre Atelier + Boutique.

  The show was a huge success. With over 300 people in the audience, we managed to raise just over $10,000 through ticket sales and the silent auction; we’re still working towards our initial goal of $12,000. None of this would have been possible without the endless hours of work put in by the co-chairs, execs and of course the committee members as well as the generous donations from all of the sponsors which included but was not limited to Aveda, Desjardins, Ernst & Young and Etiket

Thank you to everyone who came to the show and supported us! Stay tuned for more events coming your way!
