CHARITY DRIVE 2021
Each year, ISPE-CaSA hosts a charity event at our Life Sciences Technology Conference. This year, as part of the 2021 "Race to Recovery", our committees competed to raise money for five adopted charities. The Women's Center of Raleigh, sponsored by Women in Pharma, was the grand prize winner, with $860 in generous donations from our members and participants. The Chapter raised the total to $2,860 with a $2000 bonus contribution.
On top of the amount contributed by participants, our Chapter also contributed $1000 to each of the other featured charities, The Ronald McDonald Charities of North Carolina, The Raleigh Rescue Mission, and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. bringing the grand total of charitable contributions this year to $6,555.
