Hey everyone. Definitely been way too long since my last post as the 2012 CFL season picked up. But be sure work on the GHTK Pediatric Ward project hasn't stopped.
The date and location for the Annual Guyana Help The Kids Dinner Fundraiser is set and tickets ready to be sold. The dinner and dance is always a hit. Here's the flyer with all the necessary information.
In addition to the Annual GHTK Fundraiser, a second fundraiser is to be held in Hamilton on September 30th. I had an idea to organize a fundraiser but since fundraising doesn't generally take place on a football field, it's safe to say it wasn't my forte. So I'll start by saying thanks to Susan Edwards and THE ROBAR CENTRE. I met Susan at a Ticat Kickoff dinner and from the moment I mentioned GHTK to Susan, she jumped at the idea at helping with a fundraiser. Not only is she providing the facility for the event, but The Robar Centre has volunteered staff for the event. In addition to the Robar Centre I gotta give a HUGE thanks to IMAGINE PR CONSULTING for helping (helping = organizing the entire thing and giving me the credit) organize this event and doing a great job at that. Definitely would've been lost on this event without them volunteering their services for a cause that they believe in.
The event will be similar to other Touch-a-Truck events for kids and the family. From Bulldozers to Backhoes, from Packers to Excavators. Kids (of all ages) can look at, touch and climb on over 20 pieces of the heavy machinery used at The Robar Centre. There will also be a Helicopter, Firetruck and Motorcycle Section for observation. All this in addition to the BBQ and Face Painting makes for a fun filled day for the kids and family. Professional Racecar Driver Ashley McCalmont will also be there with her racecar for pictures and autographs. And of course we'll be joined by Players and Cheerleaders from the Hamilton Ticats. It's all set to be a great day. Hope to see everyone there to support this great cause!
