GIVE : A fundraiser event for Fuck Cancer

28 Mar

When we first started Way Doper Events, the plan was always to do a large charity fundraiser in the spring time.  Well that time is now and the charity event we’re producing aims to raise $10,000 for Fuck Cancer.  We chose Fuck Cancer as our donor charity for a few reasons:

1) We know them and knew that working with then would be more simple than working with a giant, mega charity
2) We strongly believe in their cause – raising awareness about early cancer detection and advocating prevention
3) They are very modern and current. Their creative and cutting edge campaigns are  launched via social media and encourage online interaction
4) Our $10,000 goal would help them hugely in running their operation and spreading their word.  We chose this rather than pouring our funds into a giant mega-charity where the $10,000 donation would be a drop in the bucket and we wouldn’t ever really know where it went or what it contributed to
5) We like them 🙂

Event Details:

The event is Friday April 22 at the Jewel Ballroom in Vancouver’s South Granville neighbourhood.  We will be featuring 2 live bands – Myles Bigelow Band & Omar Khan plus DJ Joe Michaels – and will be hosted by local MC Kyprios of Sweatshop Union fame.

Fundraising activities will include a great silent auction featuring art, event tickets, restaurant certificates, pampering and special experiences. We will also have a 50-50 draw, raffle and door prizes.

To  buy tickets, just call any one of us (see flyer image) or click here to buy tickets online.  Early bird tickets are just $25. Once these are gone the price raises to $35 and then $45 so it’s best to get your tickets quickly.
