THINK PINK WEEK @ THE LIBRARY

Think Pink Week at the Sheridan Library was a huge success!

From January 25th to 29th, the Library held a series of fundraising events including Think Pink balloon pop day, make your own pink ribbon day, Think Pink quiz day, how pink is the library quiz day and the Think Pink Week Grand Prize draw.

With the help of our generous students, faculty and staff, the Library was able to raise over $200.00 to be divided equally between Breast Cancer research and Haiti earthquake relief.  Also, the success of Think Pink Week would not have been possible without the dedication of the Library Peer Mentors.  Thank you to Satender and Juste for their hard work. 

The winner of the Library Think Pink Week Grand Prize draw will be announced at the end of the week and please see below for the answers to our Think Pink Week quizzes:
