Shinerama @ UNBC
Sep 14 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Its Orientation week in the 1960‘s. You’re a student leader and looking for a way to have fun and help others. So you take a pair of someone’s scruffy shoes, clean them up and ask for a donation. Dozens of shoe shines later, you and your friends have raised $1,300. It’s that simple- and it’s been working for 47 years. An event called Shinerama- now Canada’s largest post- secondary school fundraiser has raised more then $21.5 million for cystic fibrosis research.

TEAMs (Together Everyone Achieves More), put together a shiner team (alumni hockey mates, faculty, fraternity, sorority, Facebook friends) that work to raise money by shining shoes, holding car washes, or providing some other form of service.

The CSS has taken part in the charity event Shinerama for many years. This year, we plan to be more involved by holding a car wash with all of our executive members. By hosting a car wash with music, colourful designs, and excessive enthusiasm, we hope to raise more funds for cystic fibrosis research than ever before!
