Kin Kar 2021 is well on its way to going live!
The lottery license has been applied for and the Funding change webpage is set up. Here are a few additional updates for your information:
– Lotteries required the submission of a few reports ahead of being able to process our Kin Kar raffle application. Last I heard these were being submitted and should not be holding up our application any further. I will follow up with LGCA for an update today.
– Kelsey (our marketing communications staff member) is working in some graphics and communications to encourage 50/50 groups to participate on our bingo show. She is waiting on a new computer and is doing what she can with the free software she has. Further updates to who’s will be provided as available.
– I have confirmed 7 – 50/50 groups at this point, and have not heard back from the Air Cadet League of Manitoba who expressed a keen interest in participating this year. I had already sent out requests to all of the Air, Army, and Sea cadet groups in Manitoba, of which I have confirmation from 3 air cadet squadrons wishing to participate. Ok fully expect to grow this list significantly over the next couple of weeks.
– once we have our license, our sales page will go live and I will communicate those details out to everyone.
Any questions please feel free to reach out any time.
Sounds great. Did you consider contacting the dozens of community centers that have requested and received funding from us ? Some would probably be willing to participate for some additional funds.
Yes I have considered, however have not yet reached out to them. We are putting together a communication piece to air on our bingo show that will encourage groups, including community centers, to consider becoming a partner. Once we have a good idea of the number of partners after we release that communication, I will look at other opportunities to reach out to individual groups. Hope this answers your question, and let me know if you have any other insight/ideas or questions 🙂
