University College Goes Pink
University College (UC) staff recently supported the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund with a week of fundraising and events, raising $775 in donations by selling pink ribbon cutouts, organizing raffles and arranging a breakfast.
On Wednesday, Oct. 23, Beth Baldwin, daughter of Carol Baldwin, stopped by UC for a photo opportunity with the staff wearing pink. Baldwin serves as the executive director of the fund. All proceeds raised in Central New York stay in the local community.
“Numerous staff members at University College requested that we support this cause,” said Eileen Jevis, communications manager, noting that several UC staff members have battled this disease and many more have had friends and family members affected. “The staff embraced the initiative and were generous in their support. We are thrilled to be able to give the Carol M. Baldwin Foundation this donation, that was collected in just one week of fundraising.”
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign that takes place in October to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.
