MBA students from Concordia’s John Molson School of Business (JMSB) faced off against their counterparts from Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business at the 12th annual JMSB-Tuck School of Business Charity Sports Tournament, held January 14 on Concordia’s Loyola Campus.

This year’s tournament raised almost $4,000 for Chez Doris, a Montreal-based, non-profit organization that offers educational and recreational activities, social and professional services for women in need.
 
The Concordia students invited students from Hanover, New Hampshire, to Montreal for a weekend of friendly sports and to raise funds for a worthy cause. Since 2001, this grassroots student initiative has raised more than $30,000 for local charities, including the Segal Cancer Centre, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Sun Youth and Hockey for the Homeless.
 
The annual event features hockey and soccer competitions as well as social activities. Participants also raise awareness of a different local charity.

This year’s event was the most successful to date. MBA student and tournament organizer Kevin Dobie was delighted with the fundraising efforts of Tuck students and the encouragement of the Concordia contingent.

“There was greater interest from the Concordia community this year, and I’m really happy to carry on this tradition of supporting great causes that has become very popular,” he said.

Dobie thanks the Department of Recreation and Athletics and the Concordia Bookstores for their generosity and hard work.
