We are pleased to report that the event rased over $150,000 for Greenwood’s endowment. For a young school, this is quite an accomplishment. Thank you for helping us take such a major stride in support of student aid and program enhancements for future Greenwood students.” Alison Holt, Greenwood College School Director of Advancement

“Dear Dr. Kellett, thank you for your donation to our silent auction! The products were quite popular and the evening a wonderful success. We were able to fundraise roughly $38,000 and for the role you played, thank you! We look forward to working with you in 2007!” Pride Toronto
