Twestival Victoria, a fundraiser organized by the social media community, has this year selected The Cridge Centre for the Family to be the recipient charity for an evening of glamour and fun Tuesday September 24 at the Bengal Lounge beginning at 7 pm.
The event has had amazing community-wide support, and promises to be a fabulous evening out including live music, a silent auction, and great door prizes. All of the details are available at http://victoria.twestival.com/.
The Cridge Centre also happens to be celebrating its 140th Annual General Meeting on Monday, September 23 – celebrating 140 years of service to Greater Victoria and The Cridge’s position as Western Canada’s oldest continuously serving charity. The back-to-back events are a fun combination of honouring our past and celebrating our future, and you can be a part of it.
Thanks to the generosity of a regular Cridge donor, we have two free Twestival tickets to give away, complete with Twag bags of donated gifts. Since Twestival is the brain-child of the social media community, we’re going to give the tickets to someone who helps celebrate #Cridge140 on Facebook or Twitter.
All you have to do to be entered into the random draw is:
Share a memory you have of The Cridge Centre or our predecessor The BC Protestant Orphans’ Home, commend someone you know who works or volunteers with us (now or in the past), or even ask a questin to learn about us. As long as your status is relevant and includes the hashtag #Cridge140, it’ll be counted in the draw.
We’ll make a draw from all selections on Monday, September 23 at 10:00 pm and let the winners know then, so keep your Tuesday evening open just in case you’re the lucky winner.
This contest is open to everyone in the online community, including board and society members, supporters, suppliers, clients, volunteers, staff, and their families.
