'And the winners are . . . ': Campaign raffle winners announced
Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu once said the more one gives to others, the more one possesses of his own -- a statement well supported by University employees who won raffle prizes by contributing to Giving to Help, the University's Campaign for the United Way and Other Charities.
