It is our pleasure to announce that Compugen’s and CFI’s Team Green4Good have been crowned the new champions of the Scotia Bank Pongapalooza 2015 Ping Pong Tournament in support of First Book Canada.
Team Green4Good was the underdog. Team members Brent Smiley, Atif Khan, Wayne Tang and Dolapo Odubanjo fought a fierce battle beating 22 other teams, including last year’s champions, to become the 2015 champions. Our honorary captain and literary sponsor was Globe and Mail journalist and author Elizabeth Renzetti.
All the teams fought to bring glory to their organizations in support of a worthy cause: improved literacy for children in need through the work of First Book Canada. The over $40,000 raised will help First Book Canada give away more than 825,000 brand new books to children in need across the country. First Book Canada is determined to see that all children, regardless of family circumstances, achieve more in school and in life through access to an ongoing supply of new books.
Once again, thank you all for your generous donations and support!
