Hello SWRA ringette teams,
I would like to bring to your attention a new fundraising option for your teams in Winnipeg.
You can visit the web page at https://www.thelocalfrequency.com/forfundraisers This page provides a brief high-level overview of what this fundraising program is about.
The attached brochure is for the person responsible for choosing fundraising options (eg. Volunteer for a parent group). This provides an example of what would be sent to parents and other donors. Each team will have its own custom web address for their own fundraiser. This will be provided by Local Frequency.
Once a team is registered for a fundraiser, the Local Frequency team will create a custom web page for the team and craft an email for the fundraisers to distribute.
Until end of January 2018, 80% of the subscription price will go to the team. As by way of an example, for a small team with 25 kids, if each family sold a modest 4 subscriptions, this would be 25 X 4 X $20 = $2,000 for the team.
If you have any questions about this program please contact email@example.com

All parents of athletes born in 2004/2005 are invited to attend an information session at the River Heights Community Centre on Monday, February 27th at 7:30 pm. Athletes are welcome to attend as well if interested.
There will be a short presentation to provide general details on what families should expect if choosing to join the AA program, followed by an open forum to answer any questions you may have. This forum will be hosted by current “AA parents” who will offer you a realistic view of what it means to be part of the AA community.
