We are organizing
an upcoming event on May 29/30 2010 in Pickering @ The Montessori Learning
Centre and another on June 5/6 in Whitby @ Inspirational Steps from 10 -
4:00 and would love to have your presence!
This will be carnival with vintage style games, vendors and performers and we
will be supporting The FAITH (Further Advancement In Tree Habitats) Project
which is an undertaking fronted by an 11 year old girl who has already raised
enough money to populate a water shed in Whitby and has received a generous
grant from both GM and The Girl Guides! We are ongoing supporters of this and
other such noble groups.
The Karavan Festival will offer a table/space for each performer free of charge
in hopes everyone considers this a self promotional opportunity meaning you will
generate your own revenue from the crowds.
This event will be advertised in the local papers (NewsAdvertiser & Metroland
publications -likely front page) within the first couple of weeks of May to
generate attention from the masses!
Please let us know if you would have some time on these weekends to help us out
and promote yourselves in the process! If interested, you will become part of
our network and therefore be advertised on our sites and the sites of everyone
in our network (like yourself). In turn, we request the same cross-marketing
offer. This is very advantageous in that most of the network consists
of companies with a similar audience.
Our Karavan site will be up within the week... if you have any questions please
don't hesitate to contact me!

-12.30. Location: Hidden Valley Park Burlington This event is a fundraiser
to raise money for The bereaved Families of Ontario, Hamilton/Burlington
organization that offers support services to parents and children after the
death of a child, parent or loved one. The event is a walk in remembrance
and a celebration of life which culminates with a butterfly release. Last
year we had over three hundred people attend, we released 200 individual
Monarch butterflies and raised over 30,000 dollars. We hope that this years
event will be just as, if not more successful as we are honored to have
Jamie West and Rebecca West (CHCH Television and 900 CHM) as our Honorary
Chair's for the day. Because of the high number of children we have
attending we are hoping for more children's entertainment, because we are a
fundraiser we hope to have most services donated. ?It would be wonderful to
have a magician to entertain the children between the walk and butterfly
release. If you have somebody that can help with this event in donating a
small amount of time on a Sunday morning, please let me know. Many thanks.

event. We the Albion Community Association are a not for profit group
consisting of only a handful of volunteers and would appreciate anything
that will help us draw more people to the event and help these great local
charities towards their goals. We can offer some prime spots for retail
