@RANDOM at Educator Gala Dinner

Recently, Douglas Coll, one of our National Directors, was invited to be the keynote speaker at the annual gala dinner for the Infundo Ephakemeyo Scholarship Fund. Doug was asked to speak on the importance of “education” as a tool to understanding and chose to speak on and present the @RANDOM documentary film project. This amazing opportunity was provided to us through Paul Antunes, a long-time supporter and donor to the TSFC and his wife Rochina Antunes, a Vice-Principal at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School in Aurora, Ontario. The 125 attendees, comprising a range of high school teachers, principals and board administrators from the York Catholic School Board, support this unique and worthwhile educational charity and are clearly an important constituency for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada. The 25 minute presentation included an overview of the genesis of the idea, the development of the key creative direction, the project objectives and key partners, and finished with a showing of @RANDOM. This was an excellent opportunity to share @RANDOM as an “educational and awareness” tool for the TSFC and continue to build on our brand as a progressive, proactive organization. Each year the Infundo Ephakemeyo Scholarship Fund offers several scholarships/awards to youth of Zimbabwean heritage towards post secondary education. These awards are determined on a competitive basis and require the submission of an essay, statement of need, transcript/credit counseling summary, offer and acceptance of admission by an institution. All students of Zimbabwean descent are encouraged to apply.
