Amanda Armstrong, a former Have a Heart for CANFAR team member and a devoted supporter of CANFAR, recently held an event to raise money for us. We can't thank her enough - what a superstar! Lets hear what she has to say about planning and executing Rubber Your Ducky:
On Friday March 2nd, my friends and I held our 2nd annual fundraiser party, Rubber Your Ducky, in support of CANFAR. The best part about it... It wasn't just easy to do, but it was also so much fun!
In 2011, we held the first Rubber Your Ducky and had approximately 150 guests raising more than $2,200. This year, we had 350 guests and raised more than $4,200. It was such a great way to get our friends together to organize something as a team.
Here's some easy steps to follow so that you can have fun hosting a great event in support of a good cause:
We're looking forward to next year with an even bigger team of friends interested in getting more involved. Thanks to CANFAR for all the support that they've given us to make planning a great event so easy! :)
