Fundraising - Canada Day


Canada Day 2006
Originally uploaded by superiorskate.

First of all I'd like to thank all the volunteers that came out to the RB Pavilion to help out. Dan Pandzic, Anthony Stefanizzi, Colin Scharbach, Victoria, Carrie McCormack, Georgina Naccarato, and thanks to Paul Norbo for the moral support, , and Lori Ballstatd for the opportunity.

It was a long day in the trenches for the SCSA Volunteers this Canada Day. Rain, wind, sun, and long hours, but we toughed it out and came out on top with our fundraising efforts. The main reason we were at the pavilion was the sale of those glow stick necklaces.

The price was set at three glow sticks for $5 or one glow stick for $2, and they went like hotcakes after 9:00 pm.

The informal tally at the end of the night was a $500+ profit. The official number will come from the city whose float we used and they also made the initial purchase of the glow sticks.

We also sold three SCSA t-shirts, and soon we'll need to make a new order to replenish the stocks. I was considering making t-shirts out of this drawing, skatepark support.com pictured below, that Colin made up while hanging out at the fundraising table. What do you guys think, is it time for a change from the trusty "Get On Board" t-shirts?

Also, we should mention that Carrie and I also went out with the glow sticks on the American's Fourth of July and sold more glow sticks for more funds. We earned another $125 for the SCSA Skatepark Construction Fund.

Thanks to all the customers too!!!
