“Camp Trillium helps to provide children and their families with a sense of normalcy in light of overwhelming challenges related to fighting childhood cancer,” said Business Sales and Marketing student and event organizer Mike Cassidy. “As a group, we appreciate the support of the College and local community in recognizing the special work of Camp Trillium through this fundraising initiative.”

Students have also organized a Celebrity Server Night on Monday, April 8th at Boston Pizza, featuring students from Loyalist’s Business Sales and Marketing program as servers. Members of the community are invited to enjoy a meal, with a portion of the proceeds going to Camp Trillium. 


Camp Trillium
is an organization that provides year-round recreational experiences to bring children with cancer and their families together. It provides an environment that normalizes relationships and experiences to help the healing process and enhance quality of life amongst families. Each year, Camp Trillium welcomes 3,100 campers. All programs are free for families.

In the Business Sales and Marketing program at Loyalist College, students gain transferable skills including creating and conducting presentations, writing, territory and time management, negotiations, and marketing. Students develop techniques for relationship building, consultative selling, and developing rapport as they learn to present both products and concepts.
