SCRABBLE FOR CHEATERS FUNDRAISER 2017
On Monday November 27th, 2017, Scrabble and literacy lovers unite for a fun evening of Scrabble and Scrabble-related cheating at PPR’s inaugural annual Scrabble for Cheaters event!
Date: Monday November 27th, 2017 **NEW DATE!**
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Location: Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill – 1189 King St W, Toronto (just east of PPR)
Follow these 3 easy steps to get involved:
- Become a Team Captain and Register!
Create a team of 4 people (including yourself) and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name, and the names of your teammates (if you already have that info). Registration deadline is November 20th. If you don’t have 4 people, no problem! Let us know how many people are in your group and we can match you with more players. We will email you back with a Welcome Registration package with all the info you need for the event.
It’s not too late to register as Team Captain and fundraise, but for those looking for other ways to support us, simply come to Shoeless Joe’s on Monday November 27th! If you fancy a game of Scrabble, you can make a small donation at the door (suggested $20) and we will squeeze you in! Please email email@example.com to let us know you’re coming.
- Start Fundraising!
Are you up for the challenge of raising $1,000 (suggested amount) for Parkdale Project Read? You can do this in any way you like! Ask friends, family and coworkers if they would consider making a donation, hold a cupcake sale, host a chili cook-off or a karaoke night, etc. – have fun with this!
The donations that your team raises will earn Scrabble cheats for your team to use in the tournament, for example, Play a Proper Noun, Make Up A Word, Add Q/X/Z to Any Word – all things that are normally frowned upon in Scrabble, are fair game at the Scrabble for Cheaters Fundraiser!
We’ll even help you create online fundraising page for your team on CanadaHelps! This makes it easy for you to share on social media and for folks to support your team with online donations. Win-win! We also have good ol’ paper pledge forms for any cash or cheque donations you may receive. (Click here to print out a Scrabble for Cheaters Pledge Form)
- Come out for a jolly game of Scrabble on Monday November 27th, 2017!
As Team Captain you will show up at Shoeless Joe’s (King & Dufferin) with your team’s collected donations, your CanadaHelps printout and/or pledge forms, and all your wonderful teammates! For an extra layer of fun, come in full costume or matching outfits!
Special thanks to our Location Sponsor, Shoeless Joe’s!
