CASCO was founded in September 1998 as an initiative through the shared vision between two friends, Alexandre St-Jean and Tuan Nguyen. They both wanted to show support, raise money and honour their dearly departed friend Eric Danis, who passed away from Leukemia. In twenty years, it has touched and inspired thousands of students to give back, and has raised over $700,000 just last year!
For the past 21 years, CASCO has produced an annual gala show, putting the spotlight on the talents of the University of Ottawa students. The much-anticipated soirée is one comprised of song, dance and fashion, and succeeds in unifying students, business professionals and community members with the common goal of providing support for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Meet the team of 2021 that will be leading CASCO to success and unifying the community!
