This year's Charity Ball was a smashing success, raising $41,335.56 to be precise.
The money, which surpassed last year's total by more than $10,000, was presented to the Canadian Diabetes Association and the Make-A-Wish Foundation at last night's University Students' Council meeting.
"They had some really good programs. The Canadian Diabetes Association had an idea for a summer camp for kids and the Make-A-Wish Foundation needed help fulfilling young cancer patients' wishes to visit places such as Disney World," said Melissa Cousineau, USC VP-student affairs.
Cousineau said the ball has become a major event within the Western community.
"I think it sells itself because it's one of the events people feel they have to be at and it's always a lot of fun," she said. "It gets people talking and next year organizers are going to have big shoes to fill."
