Calling all Foodies!
Hello I’m Julia Canning manager of community giving, CNIB Ontario East. I’m looking to put a committee of 5-8 people to help plan and execute a Dining-in-the-Dark and (potentially) blindfolded live auction. The event is occurring on March 29th, but planning is already underway!
As the name indicates Dining in the Dark is a fundraising dinner where individuals are blindfolded throughout a meal, and therein able to experience their meal at a whole new level.
The DITD committee will be involved in:
-Recommending, tasting and approving a menu,
-Aid in planning and decision making,
-Recommending potential sponsors,
-Selling tickets and,
-Media and promotions
The commitment will be approximately one meeting every 2-weeks, with date, time and frequency to be determined by members.
This is great opportunity to be involved in the planning of a very unique experience.
If you are interested or if you have someone you would like to suggest for this committee,
please contact: Julia.firstname.lastname@example.org
