Billboard participants have been making a positive impact in our community for nearly three decades, and this has historically been United Way’s largest fundraising event. This year, we have a creative and fresh new concept!
Be inspired and ignite your fundraising efforts by joining the United Way to help build a stronger Thunder Bay, free from the effects of poverty. Then, on May 16th, get crafty with us by building a mini billboard collage to show what an inclusive, connected community means to you, and the role you play in it. Thanks to Community Arts and Heritage Education Project for their contribution of materials and for providing their creative guidance to help your team let their community spirit shine!
Together, we will create an image of the Thunder Bay we want to build in the form of one giant billboard.
We have some AMAZING prizes this year!! For every $500 that you raise as an individual, you will receive 1 ballot to win any of these prizes:
- 1 x $500 Lowerys Gift Card
- 5 x $200 Lowerys Gift Card
- $100 Giorg Cucina e Barra Restaurant Gift Card
- $100 Nygard Gift Card
- $130 Miscellaneous Gift Cards ($80 Mark’s Work Warehouse, $25 Best Buy, $25 Starbuck’s)
- $150 Michael’s Hair Design & Day Spa Gift Card
- $150 Pier One Gift Card
