UBC Okanagan third year student Brian Murata (left) made the highest donation bid, allowing him first swing in a car smash event

organized by engineering students.  The event was held to raise funds for the

Engineers For A Better World program, where students travel to developing countries to lend their engineering skills to assist local villages. UBCO sciences student Matt Redekopp also did his part (above), allowing his face to serve as a target for three fellow student whip cream pie throwers to specifically help raise funds for cancer research.
