The Fund-raising committee has two major goals:
1. Conduct one high-profile event, such as the “Good Words for Africa” Scrabble Benefit
Words have magnificent power to influence the way people think and behave. Since Scrabble is all about words, we are using the game to demonstrate our desire to have a positive impact on the lives of African grandmothers and their grandchildren through this fund-raising event.
Prior to the actual event people are asked to collect supportive pledges before they play. Participants can put together a team of 2 or a table of 4; play alone or with family or friends; or set up a challenge game! There is a prize for the highest score and also the highest table score. Rovers are nearby to help with spelling if needed. It is a fun afternoon for all ages. Following the game, shop at our wonderful craft tables and enjoy delicious refreshments.
2. Engage in smaller fundraising events: garage sales, crafts, Kazuri jewellery, Antique Appraisals, concerts, hostess choice events.
