Event organizers have built in some great interactive features to the virtual event space. As guests check in to the event they will be able to network on a chat wall in the event lobby space, showing off what they are wearing to the event or sharing pictures of their event snacks. The event will also be partnering with local restaurants for delicious take-out options. Participating restaurants like Mexi’s and Black Rabbit will be donating a percentage of each order to Headstart (specific ordering details will be emailed to ticket purchasers).
This new virtual fundraising event is to help Moncton Headstart replace fundraising revenue lost from live events cancelled due to Covid-19. This revenue is urgently needed to continue their important work with families and young children at risk in our community. In the face of what has become our “New Normal” Moncton Headstart continues to support their families, to build hope and to ensure they know they are not alone at such a difficult time. Adapting to our new reality they are working with Raven’s Sun Management (RSM), a local event company, to launch this one of a kind virtual fundraising event to support their programs that must continue operating regardless of the challenges they face.
* This event is intended for adults, but the content will be family friendly.
Patrick Ledwell’s quick-witted comedy has brought him national recognition with many appearances on CBC Radio’s The Debaters, Laugh Out Loud and Madly Off in All Directions and he is also a fan favourite of the HubCap Comedy Festival.
Steve Maillet – has been entertaining crowds at bars, clubs, restaurants, weddings and corporate events both locally and abroad. If you ask Steve what he loves most about playing music his reply is, “The energy that is shared between myself and the people in front of me. The vibe I put out is what I receive back, and that is what it’s all about. Often the crowd is who sets the mood first and you know it’s gonna be a great time”.
