The draw will be held Dec. 1.

Last year’s winner, Jacob Coppolino, environmental science (co-op), grew up in Guelph and knows the value the United Way adds to our community. “As a student, the tuition raffle was a great way for me to support my own community,” says Coppolino. “I’m extremely grateful to have won the tuition prize. Every bit of savings helps!”

United Way student campaign co-chair Sasha Monteiro says, “U of G students are known for their community involvement. Our United Way tuition raffle gives them a meaningful way to be involved with the campaign, and potentially get a break on their tuition fees.”

Where to buy

Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. Get yours from your college dean’s office or from reception in the executive suite, 4th Floor, University Centre, from now through the end of the month.
