The Concordia Stingers men's basketball team will benefit from a second big gift on Giving Tuesday thanks to the generous support of Marcel Elefant, who will match donations up to a total of $5000.
He is a long-time friend of George Lengvari and joins him in supporting the men’s basketball program. Lengvari, the former Loyola College star, offered to match donations up to $10,000. Elefant’s support means a total of $15,000 worth of donations can be matched.
Elefant graduated from Sir George Williams University in 1960 with a Bachelor of Commerce. He went on to be a successful international business leader.
“It’s a wonderful gift that will be impactful on our program, on the Department of Recreation and Athletics and beyond,” said Director D’Arcy Ryan. “It’s an exceptional example for our young student-athletes, and we hope it encourages many people to support the Stingers and other initiatives in their communities on Giving Tuesday.”
Dec. 1 is a global day to donate and volunteer. It was first observed in 2012 and has become a wide-spread tradition celebrated annually on the Tuesday after American Thanksgiving.
