Let the Sparks Fly on the First of July

by Katie Frederick    

Would you like to participate in one of the hottest social fundraising events at the ACB conference and convention, stay cool doing so, and help a state or special-interest affiliate?  Well, Let the Sparks Fly on the First of July and take part in the 2017 ACB Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk! 
Affiliates can create teams and designate up to 50% of the funds raised to go back to their affiliate.  Talk about a sparkling fundraising opportunity! For assistance with creating teams, contact the Minneapolis office at (612) 332-3242.  If you aren’t able to attend the 2017 ACB national conference and convention, no worries. Virtual walkers can register and seek donations too.  
The 2017 Brenda Dillon Memorial Walk website is live and ready to register your team at https://acb.donorpages.com/2017ACBWalk. A message with a link to the Walk website has already been posted on many ACB email lists.  Don’t delay! Register and create your team today! The registration fee is only $25.  You can register online, by calling the Minneapolis office, completing a paper copy of the registration form (available on the walk site or by contacting the Minneapolis office), or by contacting Donna Brown at (304) 940-0292 or by email, donnambrown59@gmail.com.
Don’t stop participating after you register – the fun is just beginning! Start seeking donations to raise funds for both ACB and the affiliate of your choice.  Great prizes will be awarded to the top fund-raising teams.  
On-site walk details: 
Date: Saturday, July 1

All on-site participants will receive a rally towel. Prizes will once again be awarded to fastest male and female walkers.  Please help us get those sparks flying to reach our goal of raising $65,000 for ACB and its affiliates.
