CUPE was a sponsor of the event Scrabble With The Stars, which was held in Toronto this Monday May 7. Let’s hope players found ways of using such noble words as U-N-I-O-N (for 5 points), C-U-P-E (for 8 points), or S-O-L-I-D-A-R-I-T-Y (for 14 points).
Scrabble With The Starsis a signature fundraiser for Performing Arts Lodges, Toronto, a unique organization that offers help to performing arts professionals in the areas of health and affordable housing. Funds raised at the eighth annual Scrabble With The Stars will fund the next steps towards providing assisted living care for PAL residents who can no longer live independently. This will allow residents whose failing health precludes independent living to remain among fellow pros with whom they share a common bonds while receiving the additional care they need. CUPE contributed $500 to the fundraiser.
