Lovely Rita Fundraiser For National Kidney Foundation
On Sunday, April 22, 2012, Twirly Girls Pole Fitness will hold the third annual Lovely Rita Fundraiser. I wrote a blog about this fundraiser (and others), in a previous Pole For A Cause post, Fighting The Good Fight. Rita, a student at Twirly Girls and close friend of mine, has been blessed with three kidney transplants. It is important to Rita to support the NKF, so it is important to us as well.
Supporting charities in our pole community is an important topic. We at Twirly Girls would like to ask pole studios all over the world to join us on April 22nd to raise money for a charity that is important to their studio. There are many ways to raise money. You can offer classes and workshops and donate any money raised. You can have a student and instructor showcase or an open house with raffle and/or silent auction. You would be surprised at how willing local businesses are to donate gift certificates or items if you are willing to advertise their donations to your studio members.
We have started a group on Facebook called Power of Pole – A Day of Giving the Gift of Pole, to help coordinate the event. If your studio is interested in joining us, please join us on Facebook. The most important thing to remember is that there is no pressure. We are not keeping track or asking you to give money to us. Find a cause close to your heart and donate directly to that charity. It will be fun to report back on Facebook and celebrate all of the good that the Power of Pole can bring to our lives!
