2019 AVC Challenge Cup competition underway

Hey AVC Alumni,

Are you up for a challenge? It’s a New Year—and it’s time to rally the forces for the annual AVC Challenge Cup! The Challenge Cup recognizes the class with the highest number of donations of $25 or more to their College. Donors can pick from several funds to support at Give to AVC.

Your gift helps current and future students in their pursuit of a career in veterinary medicine, and helps us meet our current and long-term needs. Your donation must be received by April 5 to be in the running. This year's winning class will be announced at the Atlantic Provinces Veterinary Conference in Halifax on April 13. The Cup may be presented then or at a later date.

The Class of 1993 and the Class of 2003 have won the coveted Cup. Is your class next?
