'She vs. He' Fall Fundraiser

Sometimes fundraising events are just so 'predictable'.  Chicken, roasted potatoes, steamed vegetables, a speaker and an appeal.  (Yawn...)  They work and have been effective for us in the past, but we've decided to put the FUN into fundraising this fall with our first ever 'She vs. He' Fundraiser.

Barb and I have been training for the Victoria Half Marathon that happens on Oct 6.  The challenge runs to October 31.  Barb and I will compete around who can raise the most sponsorships during that time.  If she wins I will be her servant for a day and wear the costume of her choosing for lunch at the Legislature. If I win, she will be my servant for a day (no big change there she says...) but she will also write and sing a love song for me on the steps of the Legislature. 

Here's how it works.  You can sponsor either one of us (but please sponsor me!) on a per km. basis (a half marathon is 21 kms) or on a flat rate for the entire event.  By way of example, a $5/km pledge will result in a $105 commitment.

Barb is light years ahead of me on an informal basis already, but who really wants to see me in a costume at the Legislature?  We'll add a thermometer to our side bar and Facebook page so you can see how it's going.  Click here to be taken to our pledge page!

Thanks for your support.  It's going to be a lot of fun hearing Barb sing.... (I hope)

Much better idea for fundraising --- especially for those of us not in Victoria ! Good luck Tim... My money is on Barb. I'd suggest a ballerina themed outfit for your lunch debut.

Much better fundraising idea - healthier and more fun for those of us who do not live in Victoria. Good luck Tim. My money is on Barb! I would like to suggest a ballerina theme costume for your informal attired lunch debut on the hill.
