YOU’RE INVITED. VIRTUAL LIVE CROWDFUNDING EVENT.
September 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
United Way Glenelg is proud to present SharkPitch, a spectacular live crowdfunding event where we will connect people who want to make a change with people who are doing it!
This spectacular event will support three local community organisations who will pitch their idea to a live audience for their program’s financial and in-kind support. Our emcee, Neil O’Donnell will engage with the audience to pledge funds, to raise over $8,000 per organisation. Thanks to the support of AWA Alliance Bank and United Way Glenelg your donation will be matched.
MEET THE ORGANISATION THAT WILL BE PITCHING
Edgarley Assisted Living – Pitcher Sue Wray
Help us raise funds for our older friends at Edgarley Assisted Living, as they build a multigenerational playground, creating a safe place for their residents and the little people in their lives to connect and play. Think Old Peoples Home for 4-Year-Olds!
Portland Community Garden – Pitcher Wayne Barrett
Help Portland Community Garden create a thriving, more connected and resilient community where people from all walks of life can connect over the simple joy of growing fresh nutritious food. Meet new people, build new skills and create new life experiences.
Portland Yacht Club – Pitcher Mick Doherty
Help encourage our young people to safely get back on the water by assisting Portland Yacht Club to raise funds for a safety and coaching powerboat. At a time when ocean drownings are devastatingly high, together we can create a safer ocean playground for our community!
