Foundation honours McDonald, Bales for supporting university
Two outstanding community builders were among those honoured Friday during the Brandon University Foundation annual luncheon, which recognizes the many who have helped advance higher education at the university in the past year. Dick McDonald was named Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser and Dr. Jeff Bales received the BU Honorary Trustee Apex Award. McDonald, who received both his arts and education degrees from BU, is a retired financial adviser, former school teacher and military officer. He has served in a number of volunteer capacities with the university, including as a member of the fundraising team that raised more than $8 million for BU between 2004 and 2007; as a board member of the Brandon University Foundation and current volunteer for the BUILD Campaign. He and his wife Verda have also
provided generous financial support to Brandon University.
Bales is a partner in Smiles Specialty Centre with his wife, Dr. Trudy Corbett. His involvement with the Brandon University Foundation has been considerable, including as a member of the board from 2004 until 2011, during which he was active in raising more than $8 million for the university; foundation President in 200P and 2008. In addition, Bales and Corbett have been ongoing, gracious supporters of the university. BU Foundation president Nathan Peto said both men are well-deserving of the awards. “Dick is one of the most devoted university fundraisers that I have ever met,” he said. “Jeff’s commitment is also second-tonone. The foundation would be hard-pressed to find two more worthy recipients.” More than 150 new and existing Order of the Sheaf members were recognized for their contributions to BU during Friday’s luncheon in the university’s main dining hall.
Smiles Specialty Centre Donates $100,000 to the Brandon University Healthy Living Centre
There were plenty of smiles around the Brandon University campus thanks to a hefty donation to the new Healthy Living Centre.
Periodontist Trudy Corbett and orthodontist Jeff Bales, partners in Smiles Specialty Centre, have given $100,000 towards the completion of the $24.3-million project, which opened to the public in January with construction to be finished this spring. “Health and wellness have always been a big part of our lives, and we are big believers in post secondary education, so this donation is a perfect fit for us in terms of giving back to the community,” Corbett said.
BU president Deborah Poff said the husband and wife team are longtime supporters of the university. “In addition to their financial contributions,” Poff said. “I want to thank Jeff for his many years of service on the BU Foundation Board, including a term as chair. Both Jeff and Trudy are true community builders.” BU is important for Brandon, Bales said. “We are not a large city, so having a university is a real feather in our cap, a real asset, especially since the Healthy Living Centre is available and accessible to the community at-large.”
