Dance for the Cure

Join Beckley’s Family and Friends at the team’s third annual Dance for the Cure to raise money for local breast cancer research.
The fun runs from 8 pm to 1 am on Friday April 24 at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 163 at 435 Limeridge Road East.
Dancing starts at 8 with returning DJ Mike London, and there will be lots of raffle prizes, grand prizes, games and food. Tickets are $15 each and are available at the door or by contacting team captain Diana Beckley at [email protected]

Tip of the Month:

Spread some sweetness in February by trying a Valentine’s Day inspired team event. A raffle among friends or at your workplace is an easy way to get your fundraising started. Do some baking, put together a chocolate-filled Valentine’s basket or create a kid-themed gift and raffle it off. Make sure the draw takes place in time for the winner to take his or her prize home for Valentine’s Day!

Fundraising Tips

  • Share your story: when telling people about the event make sure to share why you believe in the cause.
  • Stay motivated: don’t take it personally if someone doesn’t want to donate as people support many causes and may not be able to support all of them. If someone says no to donating money, you could ask him or her to spread the word about the event or invite them to “like” the facebook page.
  • Stay in touch: send updates to your donors on how much you’ve raised and how much the event raised in total. Don’t forget to say thank you! A picture of you at the event is always a nice touch!
