Raising the “Steaks” with Strategic Event Fundraising!

Tigris Promo Staff Show What Event Fundraising Is All About!

After raising close to $12,000 last year in only two days, Tigris was contacted once again by DJ Steaks to assist with their event fundraising initiatives, only this time on SIX special events!

For the last 25 years,  DJ Wiley, founder of DJ Steaks, has been buying and selling the finest quality meats to the finest quality establishments all over the world. Realizing his success, Wiley decided to make these same remarkable cuts of meat available to his friends and family.  DJ Steaks continues to  grow as a well-known online establishment that sells high end certified Angus beef imported from the US and are a firm believer in giving back to the community.

Each year, DJ Steaks executes their event fundraising initiatives at selective private ski-clubs across Blue Mountain in Collingwood. This years fundraisers were held at Devil’s Glen , Osler , Craigleith and Georgian Peaks Ski Clubs.  Two of the six fundraisers were dedicated  to “Women’s Day” that coincided with charities directed at females. The remaining four were  targeted at males in support of “Men’s Day”.

Tigris Does A Job “Well Done” For DJ Steaks Event Fundraising!

A team of 4-6 events staff were contracted per event and stationed at the ‘DJ Steaks’ booth to help assist with ticket sales. Staff also roamed throughout the venue to encourage guests to participate in DJ Steaks event fundraising. At $20 a ticket, skiers and snowboarders spun the DJ Steaks prize wheel and were entered into a draw for a chance to win one of the several Texas Mickeys . This event fundraising technique ensured every spinner was a winner, taking home either a box of steaks or $20, $30, or $40 off their next purchase.

In total over $25,000 was raised for the charities which included the special Olympics, Osler ski hill safety, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Track 3. The event fundraising was a huge hit and we hope to return to these events in 2014.
