Come play tournament rounds of the board game ‘Life’!
This is an all-ages event where tables will play the board game ‘Life’ with live entertainment so that families, youth, and adults can play a game, and save a life!
Prizes, refreshments, snacks, and free childcare included. All proceeds will go directly to Raise Your Voice’s scholarship fund to send a Malawian girl to school.
Step-Up Youth Leadership Crew is a group of dedicated youth in Victoria who volunteer and operate through the Crystal Pool Recreation Centre. Step-Up strives to work with low-income children, as a liaison between Victoria’s community centres, and most importantly be involved in the community as a ‘crew’ of volunteers at any City of Victoria event. Starting in 2013, Step-Up has had the incredible opportunity to partner with the local non-profit Raise Your Voice.
Raise Your Voice (RYV) is a non-profit organization and registered Canadian Charity founded in 2012 by second year students at Lester B. United World College of the Pacific, an international boarding school just outside of Victoria, B.C. In 2013 RYV is fundraising for the school Girls on the Move in Malawi, Africa, to sponsor the full cost ($4,000) of one student to attend four years of secondary school. RYV and Step-Up share the common goal of empowering and engaging youth in their local communities. Together, we are excited to support and educate youth on a global scale.
The event will be on Friday May 24th from 6-9pm at Fernwood Community Centre.
Tickets are $20 at Crystal Pool Recreation Centre, Fernwood Community Centre, and Oaklands Community Centre. All profits made through ticket sales, 50-50 raffle draws, and general donations will go directly to RYV’s Scholarship Fund. There are plenty of great prizes to be won and childcare will be available on-site.
Come play the game and change a life.
