Up the Tower 2011 - Get Involved
Up the Tower, Surf Life Saving WA’s annual fundraising event is on again and it’s time to Get Involved!
On October 7, centre stage at Karrinyup Shopping Centre will be transformed into a red and yellow frenzy with media personalities and sport stars all coming together for Surf Life Saving WA.
The event will see WA businesses and individuals head up a Surf Life Saving patrol tower. Once ‘on patrol’ they are given a mobile phone to call as many people as they can in order to reach their fundraising target. Participants will only be allowed down the tower once they have reached their goal. Individuals have a personal fundraising target of $1,000, while corporate teams must reach $3,000.
Last year UP THE TOWER raised over $40,000, this year we hope to hit $60,000. To reach this target we are calling on all clubs to get behind this challenge and nominate a team of up to 3 people.
To encourage clubs to participate, we are giving them the opportunity to keep half the money they raise! There’s no limit to what you can achieve so the more you raise, the more money goes directly back to your club!
UP THE TOWER requires no financial outlay, just a commitment to approach friends, family and colleagues.
The fundraising component is easy and can all be done before even heading UP THE TOWER. We can set your team up with a personal fundraising webpage. From this page those going UP THE TOWER can email their webpage link to multiple people with the click of a finger and also keep track of who has donated. All people who donate will automatically receive a thank you email and tax deductible receipt.
UP THE TOWER is a key fundraising initiative that helps Surf Life Saving WA purchase and maintain vital surf lifesaving equipment and train new volunteer surf lifesavers.
At the event there will be ample opportunity to gain some great exposure and it promises to be a fun, interactive way to promote your club to the wider community.
