Billboard participants have been making positive impact in our community for nearly three decades, and this has historically been United Way’s largest fundraising event. As you hear, this year we have a creative and fresh new concept!
Be inspired and ignite your fundraising efforts now by joining the United Way to help build a stronger Thunder Bay, free from the effects of poverty. Then, on May 16th, get crafty with us by building a mini billboard collage to show what an inclusive, connected community means to you, and the role you play in it. Together, we will create an image of the Thunder Bay we want to build in the form of one giant billboard.
There is no limit on how many fundraising team members you can have and all ages are welcome; more team members = more gifts = more impact. The day of the event, we have room for 4 creative members to participate in the creation of your mini billboard collage!
Fundraising for this event is simple. Register using the link, then follow the emailed instructions to set-up your personal online fundraising page. Using your page makes collecting donations a breeze, or you can also use our handy paper pledge form that you received in your team package (if you need more, send me an email)!
Please remember that this year we ask that ALL paper pledge donations (cash & cheque) are brought in on the day of the event as we will not be invoicing individuals. We encourage all credit card donations to be done online.
For more information, or if you need help setting up your fundraising pages, please contact Erika at (807) 626-1759 or visit https://uwaytbay.ca/news-events/events/great-billboard-event.
