Help this brainiac study in MoscowSaturday, January 19, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
A Sault Ste. Marie resident has an opportunity of a life time.
Algoma U soon-to-be graduate, Broderick Causley, is just one of 13 students world-wide to be accepted into the one-semester Math in Moscow program offered at the Independent University of Moscow.
Causley is scheduled to depart for Moscow on January 25, but he needs a bit of help.
He's calculated that in order for him to cover basic needs expenses while abroad, he'll need $5,000.
He's a tad shy of that target.
In an effort to aid Causley's educational excursion, a group of kindly individuals are hosting a fundraising event at 180 Projects, a new gallery space located at 180 Gore Street (formerly MJ's).
The event begins at 8 p.m. tonight and includes live entertainment from Honest Job, food and refreshments, and prizes.
For every $10 donation at the door, attendees will receive a ballot to be entered into a draw for a 32" LCD HD TV.
