Brock professors will take centre stage on Wednesday to busk for Japan.

Professors from various faculties will play for an hour and a half in Market Hall to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. International Services and Programs Abroad is spearheading the Brock campaign.

The schedule is as follows:

12 noon to 12:30 – Irish folk music by the Biorhythms, a musical group of Biology professors
12:30 to 1 p.m. – Business professor Don Cyr on keyboard
1 to 1:30 p.m. – Klezmer music with Psychology professor Sid Segalowitz on clarinet and Mathematics professor Bill Ralph on keyboard

A staff member has also pitched in to help the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Jackie Bering, a fourth-year Visual Arts student and employee in Human Resources, has donated the painting Birds with Hats 3 to be auctioned for the cause.

The painting will be available for bidding on Wednesday and Thursday in Market Hall.

The minimum bid for the 8” by 10” painting will be $20. Bids will be kept hidden.

There are donations jars throughout the campus. There will also be a sale of origami, recipes and other Japanese items in Market Hall on March 24.

Donations will be accepted at the International Services and Programs Abroad office at GLN-B 210 in the International Centre. You can also call 905-688-5550 x3163 or email Cheques are preferred and can be earmarked “Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami” and sent through inter-office mail.
