UBC Okanagan Bookstore Pit Stop — Dec. 2
Professor Ono’s Bow Tie goes to highest bidder

Leanne Takenaka was the winning bidder on a bow tie once owned by UBC President Santa Ono. Leanne’s winning bid of $100 was confirmed at the UBC Okanagan Bookstore’s Pit Stop on Dec. 2.

Special thanks to Dr. Ray Taheri from the School of Engineering for his extraordinary donation of the bow tie personally presented to him recently by Professor Ono, and for the beautiful laser-engraved display stand custom-made for the bow tie.

Payroll e-Pledge Prize Draws

All payroll e-pledges received by Nov. 30 were eligible for a special prize draw at the end of November — a 2017 parking permit (courtesy of UBC Okanagan Parking Services). The winner of the 2017 parking permit was Karen Krysko!

Congratulations also go to Ilya Parkins, our October prize winner! Ilya received a multi-pass to The Hangar Fitness and Wellness Centre, courtesy of UBC Okanagan Athletics and Recreation.

What is a Pit Stop?

UBC Okanagan Pit Stops give all staff and faculty an opportunity to gather together, enjoy a cup of coffee, have some good snacks, collaborate with colleagues, meet new people and catch up with friends.

When you attend a Pit Stop, don’t forget to bring your Toonie for the United Way donation box.
