Vancouver Island University’s Master’s of Business Administration students are holding a carnival fundraiser on Saturday (July 5).

Students are holding the carnival at Brooks Landing mall between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., with a number of children’s activities, a clown and international food.

Proceeds will go to the Nanaimo Child Development Centre to reduce the wait-list for children who need special care.

Students will also be selling tickets for the July 13 Silly Boat Regatta, a fundraiser that also benefits the development centre.
