Event Host

Putting on an event to raise funds, supplies (food, winter coats, linens etc.) and awareness doesn’t have to be daunting. It can be as simple as a dinner party or creating a challenge among family or neighbours. You can plan events on your own, with your friends, co-workers, church group, social club or community group.

If you’re already planning a social event, you could add a fundraising component to give back!

Here are a few ideas that make fantastic fundraisers! BBQ – Yard Sale – Fashion Show – Golf Tournament – Car Wash – Raffle – Concert – Pot Luck lunch – Skate-a-thon – Bowling Tournament – Card Tournament – Concert –– Murder Mystery Dinner - Board Game Tournament. There are, of course, hundreds of different ways you can organize an event to raise funds.

So, get creative, have fun and together we can raise funds and awareness for the folks at Fred Victor!

Contact us and we’ll help you plan your event.
