We are approaching the end of 2020, and that means it’s almost time to launch The Family Center’s annual Play it Forward year-end campaign.
My Big Day has been proud to support this amazing non-profit and help lead their fundraising efforts!
If you’re familiar with The Family Center/La Familia, you know our goal in an average year is to raise at least $50,000 for families. This year has not been an average year. The needs of our community are greater than ever. Larimer County’s childcare assistance program has now been closed for three years due to lack of funding. And, if you received our Play it Forward 2020 letter, you know the pandemic has not slowed us down - in fact, it has only increased the needs of families in our community.
Here are some of TFC’s 2020 achievements so far, by the numbers:
Our goal for this year’s Play it Forward event is to raise $80,000.
Here are some examples of how far your donation can go:
Did you know that your donations to TFC/La Familia also qualify for Colorado’s Child Care Contribution Tax Credit? This means that 50% of your income comes right off your taxable income. If you donate $100 to our Play it Forward campaign, your net out-of-pocket cost is just $50 - for a $200 donation after donor matching.
You can donate to Play it Forward easily online HERE.
Thank you to our vibrant community for another year of support. We couldn’t operate The Family Center/La Familia without you.
Loveland Drive-In Launches June 5 Bringing Six Weeks of Classic and Family Favorite Movies
Tickets go on sale June 3 for the pop-up experience to benefit Thompson Education Foundation
LOVELAND, Colo. - May 29, 2020 - My Big Day Marketing and Events along with partners Thompson Education Foundation (TEF), Visit Loveland, and Rythm EFX have launched a pop-up Loveland Drive-In fundraiser. The drive-in runs June 5 through July 12 in the north lot of The Outlets at Loveland. Tickets go on sale June 3 and are a suggested donation of $20.
Drive-In details - how it works:
The ability to provide daytime shows comes with innovative LED wall technology from Rythm EFX that is also used in large event centers such as Fiddlers Green Amphitheater and many outdoor festivals for all-day events. Unlike video projection, LED wall is capable of competing with the sun. To get an idea of what to experience, picture the large, vibrant screens seen in Las Vegas 24/7.
“We are proud to come together with our partners and offer a safe, fun way for families to get outdoors and enjoy some entertainment - all while supporting TEF and helping to boost the economy,” said Christine Forrester, owner of My Big Day Marketing and Events.”Loveland is a community with heart and we are all excited to step up with this opportunity at a time when people and businesses need it most.”
“At Visit Loveland, our goal is to bring people to Loveland to shop, eat, stay and play,” said Cindy Mackin, visitor services manager for the City of Loveland. “The location on I-25 and US 34 makes it easily accessible for locals and nearby families to take advantage of this entertainment option and give back at the same time.”
The Loveland Drive-in is looking for additional sponsors to help offset the costs of production and help give more to the TEF. TEF’s vision is to be the community’s best answer to support student and educator opportunities in the Thompson School District. They do this through scholarships, grants, homeless assistance and other important programs for Loveland-area youth. Sponsorship packages are available now through TEF.
