Chillin’ for Charity is an annual fundraiser hosted by University of Victoria students in support of the United Way. The 2009 Chillin’ for Charity was held last month and included a dunk tank filled with icy water, lots of media and dozens of fun-loving participants in wacky costumes!
The UVic EcoCAR team volunteered three team members to sit in the dunk tank. Team leader, Jeremy Wise, assistant team leader, Jeff Waldner and outreach coordinator, Skyler Kopelow, all took a swim – helping to raise more than $400 for the United Way! The team is looking forward to making a splash again next year and doing its part to help out a great cause.
