Curling Bonspiel Committee Member

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Our Curling Bonspiel is one of Bereaved Families of Ontario – Midwestern Region’s longest standing fundraising events. The bonspiel sells out every year, and continues to grow in its capacity to raise funds for our programs.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Raise funds for BFO-MR’s grief support programs for children, families and individuals grieving the death of a loved one
  • Create an exciting and memorable experience for curlers who attend our event and show our gratitude for their support
  • Increase awareness about BFO-MR and our role in the community

ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
The curling bonspiel wouldn’t be possible without the help of incredible people who help our staff recruit teams, secure sponsorships and find the amazing prizes that fill our silent auction and raffle tables.

We’re looking for people who can help us make those connections in the community. Have a relationship with a company who would make a great sponsor or prize donor? Introduce us – we’ll take it from there.
Volunteers on this committee actively participate and work with BFO-MR staff to:
  • Ensure the goals of the event align with the BFO-MR mission and that the needs of our members are at the forefront of all of our decisions
  • Identify and pursue opportunities for corporate/individual support of this event through in-kind donations and sponsorships
  • Recruit teams to participate in the bonspiel
  • Help identify opportunities to maximize fundraising
  • Work with BFO-MR to identify and connect with potential volunteers who can help on event day

MEETINGS: The best part of being a member on our Curling Bonspiel committee? NO MEETINGS! Nice, right?!
