28th Kurl for Kids Fundraising Total

By | Fundraising | No Comments

IMG_3053As we travel down our road to thirty, the 28th Kurl for Kids is now in the books.  With the additional donations that have come through and some great work by the committee, we have discovered that our initial fundraising total announcement was a little low.  We are pleased to announce that together we have raised over $95,200!!   Just over $82,200 will be going to the Oakville Hospital Foundation and just over $13,000 to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation.

Special thanks to the whole Kurl for Kids Family including those who donated, the sponsors, the committee, the participants, the volunteers, Michelle Smith and the awesome staff at the Oakville Curling Club, Vern’s Comb Band, DJ Garry, the Holiday Inn and their amazing staff, Shannon Clark for her heartwarming story, and the skips that flew in or drove to make it another banner year!

Well done everyone!

Ok…phew…time to start planning the 29th!

How to Raise 500 Dollars in 7 Days

By | Fundraising | No Comments

Hey K4K Family!

With just over a week to go and Chelsea Carey just announced as a celebrity skip, it’s time to kick the fundraising into high gear.

We know it’s not easy to raise money, so here are a few ideas from the Oakville Hospital Foundation on how to get started.

How to raise $500 in 7 Days

  1. Show your commitment to Kurl for Kids and kick start your fundraising with a $50 donation. $50 = $50
  2. Ask 3 family members to donate $25.
    $75 = $125
  3. Ask 5 friends to donate $15.
    $75 = $200
  4. Ask 5 co-workers to donate $15.
    $75 = $275
  5. Ask 3 businesses you frequent to donate $25.
    $75 = $350
  6. Ask 15 of your Facebook friends for a $10 donation.
    $150 = $500

Give one or all of these ideas a try and see what happens! Looking forward to seeing you all on April 13th.
