If you haven't heard of it (sorry, the thread from 2012 is gone, but my crappy Shaw website is linked in my sig), it's a party/fundraiser for BC Children's Hospital, to help kids and their families battling cancer.
Having said that, I'm looking for adult ideas, but more connections or actual support.
In the last 4 years I have had the very generous support from Burnaby Kawasaki, International Motorsports and Motorcycle world with support for new bikes to give away as a Grand Prize. Before he became one of the principals of Vancouver BMW Ductati, Pat and his brother donated 2 of their racebikes.
There are a couple of problems though. One is that one or two persons win big, and also there still has to be some compensation paid for the new bikes, which comes out of funds raised for the kids.
So.....unless I can get a few bikes donated.......
What I am thinking about is weekend getaways from Vancouver.
A weekend in Kelowna, Harrison Hotsprings, Whistler, Osoyoos.... places to ride to on your bikes, in the summer, for 2 people. Or a night on the town somewhere, special dinners, etc.
This was a lot more people could win something cool, and it would get the costs down.
Do you own or manage a restaraunt? Have a connection at a resort? Own a time share in BC?
It has to be in line with something BCCH would approve of, and something I can properly advertise to get a little promo to help thank the donors for helping the kids.
If you are in a position to help with this, a pm might be the best way.
