Charity food fight

Interested in feeding your face and helping others? In other words – a food fight for charity?

The fourth annual Multiple Sclerosis Society of London/Middlesex "Battle of the Hors D' Oeuvres" will occur Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. at Gabrialdi's Garden restaurant.

The event is a competition for the finest restaurants and caterers in London to display their wares, said event chair Patty Crawford.

Perhaps a bit pricey for students, tickets are $85 each.

Tips on how to lead

Aspiring politicians can pick up a few pointers tomorrow as Member of Provincial Parliament Marion Boyd visits Western to speak about women in leadership.

Boyd will discuss challenges faced by female politicians in our government, said Diana Reynolds, equity officer for the University Students' Council.

Boyd is the MPP for London Centre and has also served as Attorney General and the Minister responsible for Women's Issues. She will speak in the University Community Centre's McKellar Room at noon with a reception to follow.

Pick up a desk

Are you failing your classes because you have nowhere to do your homework?

A sale next week on campus may help solve your problem. Due to construction at Middlesex College, there will be all kinds of desks, chairs and tables for sale for students at very low prices, said Tom Vine, purchasing manager for Western.

"It's a great opportunity for students to buy furniture for prices they wouldn't find anywhere else," he said. The sale will occur Nov. 17 to Nov. 19 on the second floor of the college.
