Give’R on the WaterShare Tweet
For almost 10 years, our team in Atlantic Canada has been committed to “Give’R”, a community fundraiser that’s tagged “The Best Friday of Every Month, the Last Friday of Every Month.”
For each Give’R event, a local charity or community group is selected as beneficiary, a local bar secured to host, and one of our products is selected to be sampled. Guests pay a small cover fee which goes directly to the charity, and as thanks, we provide the first sample as people arrive. The event is run in conjunction with one of our major radio partners, who send one of their on-air DJ’s to host the event.
Thus far in 2013, the Give’R events hosted across the Atlantic have raised more than $16,000 for local charities, highlighted by the August Give’R in Nova Scotia, a signature event each summer that takes place out at sea on the Tall Ship Silva – one of Halifax’s most recognizable sailboats.
Final August Tally:
- 150 guests
- $1,250 raised in 50/50 draw (with the winner donating back half)
- $2,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
- 1 best night all Summer
