INVITE YOUR FRIENDS and FAMILY
Attendance is key. Invite your friends and family to Family and Friends Fun Night held on January 11, 2020 at Richmond Ice Centre. We will have activities such as a skills competition, photo booth, our famous ring toss on the ice where participants can earn prizes donated by the community and members of the Association.
We are asking each family to either donate or acquire one or more items for the Family and Friends Fun Night.
Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:
Did you or a member of your family receive a Christmas gift that was just not quite right? Re-gift it to the West Coast Classic:
Best sellers include iPods, video games, computers and laptops, Tv’s, and gaming systems.
Why not get together with a few friends and put together your own basket of goodies?
Spa Treatments, Luxury Cosmetic Products, Perfume, Jewellery, Yoga, Designer Handbags
Sports Memorabilia, Concert/Sports Tickets
Wine, Spirits, Gourmet Foods, Restaurant Gift Certificates, Coffee
We all patronize local establishments. Why not ask a business you have a special relationship with for a donation of an item or gift certificate. When approaching businesses for acquisitions, you may use the solicitation letter we have already prepared.
You, your business, the company your work for or someone you know may choose to support Richmond Ringette Association. This is an excellent opportunity for corporations to receive a tax receipt while showing support for our Association. Sponsorship can be a simple cash donation, or you another item for the Family Fun Night.
