The Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience Student’s Association is an active undergraduate club at the University of Windsor dedicated to improving the community through volunteer work and fundraising. The club is made up of Neuroscience undergraduate students.

At the start of each new school year, BCNSA chooses a local charity that they would like to support for the year.

They then actively fund raise throughout the year, holding various events such as bake sales, fundraiser breakfasts and other events capable of fundraising for the community, the biggest being their annual charity gala. Last year the club presented a ‘Harry Potter’ themed gala.

In the past they have supported charities such as the Miracle League of Amherstburg and Canadian World Education Foundation. Together they have raised thousands of dollars in the past years for other local charities around Windsor.

Sejal Joshi, president of the club, said this year they have chosen to support the Brain Injury Association of Windsor-Essex.

“This is a cause that is very close to the clubs heart as Neuroscience students. We like to keep our themes spirited and this year we are having a ‘Disney Dreams’ gala event.”

Joshi said the group raised $2750 last year, with much of the funding coming from the gala.

“We had approximately 175 people attend the gala last year, and this year we aim to sell out at 200.”

The gala takes place Friday January 22nd at the Fogolar Furlan.

The doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the event includes dinner, dancing, a large selection of raffle prizes, a Disney Dessert table prepared by the BCNSA members and a cash bar. All money raised will go to the Brain Injury Association of Windsor-Essex.
