What started off as a way to get Concordians together off-campus turned into a fundraising drive for the NDG Food Depot.

In mid-July, Joanne Beaudoin, Administrative Director of Graduate Studies, put out a call for a two-day recreational softball tournament in Côte-St-Luc.

By the time the date was set, the event had developed into a fundraiser. Brian Blumer of Parks and Recreation for the city of Côte-St-Luc donated the use of the fields as well.

Six teams registered to play on what turned out to be one of the hottest weekends of the summer. Victory went to Club 7310 after a well-fought overtime battle against a team from the Student Service Centre, Bookstore and JMSB.

Susan Durkee from Enrolment Services and Beaudoin donated food for sale. In the end, four boxes of non-perishable food and $800 were presented to a very appreciative NDG Food Depot.
