Honouring 20 Years of Bryden Awards
For 20 years, the Bryden Alumni Awards have celebrated alumni who have changed the world for the better. The tradition of recognizing their contributions will continue at The York U Alumni Celebration: Honouring 20 Years of Bryden Awards– a virtual event which will bring 20 years of award winners together with York’s global community of alumni, friends, students and York leaders for an entertaining and inspiring evening. We are thrilled to be able to offer complimentary tickets for this event, please RSVP to reserve your place.
We are asking guests to consider making a donation of $20 or more to York’s Emergency COVID-19 Student Relief Fund. As the pandemic unfolds, this Fund will respond to meet the evolving needs of students, ensuring they can continue their academic journey. Thanks to the profound generosity of The Victor Dahdaleh Foundation and The Pierre Lassonde Family Foundation, your gift to the Emergency COVID-19 Student Relief Fund will now be tripled up to $300,000. This means that your gift will go three times as far and have triple the impact! Donate now.
