Orenda has a number of fun-raising events planned for 2017, and among them is the annual Auction and Dance! We know you have been waiting for it, so now you can save the date and book a babysitter!!
On Saturday May 13 (7pm - midnight) we are hosting an auction and dance at the Porters Lake Community Center. Keep in mind three things you can do to help:
The Auction supports the Club's operations, programming and athlete development. To make the fundraiser a success, we need each Orenda family to contribute 3 or more items for the auction. Donations should be collected and dropped off at the Orenda Canoe Club by May 6th. Athletes, particularly those registered in High Performance and After School training programs, are reminded of their responsibility to contribute to Orenda's fundraising events.
To help with obtaining auction donations, please see the attached letter from Michelle Lacombe, Fundraising Coordinator. You are encouraged to provide this letter to businesses or organizations, seeking their support and or a donation to our auction.
#2 Scotia Bank
Any Scotia Bank employees within the Orenda Club membership are encouraged to get in touch with me (Kelly Murphy: firstname.lastname@example.org), as there may be an opportunity for Orenda to partner with Scotia Bank on our auction fundraiser.
#3 Spread the Word
Every successful event has strong attendance, so we ask that you please please make a commitment to attend and spread the word through your networks. Encourage your friends to come, as there will be good deals, good times and good music!
If you have any questions about this event or would like to assist with organizing (as volunteers are always needed for jobs big and small), please contact Michelle Lacombe for details at email@example.com.
The Auction and Dance is always a lot of fun. Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you there.
