This Saturday was our Family FUNdraiser Pizza Party at the TG Community Centre. It was a success and fun was had by all! Kids danced, grown-ups won prizes, and we raised money for our amazing new playground. Stay tuned to find out how much- we're still recovering from the party and should have an amount counted up tomorrow! Here are a few pictures from the night.
This is very, very cool!! Head on down to the lounge at the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Centre, 5600 Centre Street North and drink back some Original 16 to help the cause!!
Doesn't this look cool?! Your new playground will have one of these- where kids of different abilities can play side by side! That's what we call inclusion😀 Except you can ignore the wood chips on the ground because your new playground will have rubberized flooring- that's what we call accessibility
We're looking for a DJ to donate their services, and raffle prizes as well. Please contact us if you can help.
We will be putting on a family dance to raise funds and awareness for our playground! More details to come, but here's what we know so far...
Who:Thorncliffe residents and basically anyone who wants to come!
What: A family dinner and dance
When: February 10, 2018, 6-10pm
Where: Thorncliffe Greenview Community Centre- Main Gym

Want to help?? We need a few things!!

We have partnered up with Variety Alberta who are helping immensely to bring our community one of the best, most inclusive, most accessible playgrounds in the north end of Calgary.
We have raised $160,000 so far and have another $300,00 in pending grants.
The city of Calgary will be investing on this project too, which includes the construction of a berm, pathways through the green space, and room for a sensory garden. Please watch the video below for one of the reasons we feel so passionate about this project. The scenes in this video... that will be US! Right here in Thorncliffe!
