We’ve Got Talent
We do a lot at LinkNow Media and it’s easy to say that our staff are talented designers, writers, managers, and salespeople. But did you know that there’s a lot more areas they’re talented in? When the holiday season rolls around, our biggest and most exciting fundraising event takes place in the form of a talent show.
Last year’s theme was The Academy Awards, and saw a red-carpet entrance, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers, magicians, poets, and more! And when it came to red carpet fashion, Jay Stevens wore a maple leaf patterned suit that for some was a little hard on the eyes. Though, arguably it wasn’t much of a rival for Max’s burlesque-style tassles and onesies of past years!
The annual LinkNow Media talent show has been running for 5 years now, and also features a charity auction where those of us who aren’t so drawn to the stage can contribute. Taking place in Batshaw auditorium, even the money earned from food and drink goes straight back into the Batshaw Youth and Family Centres.
The theme for our 2017 talent show is game shows, and will feature nods to American Idol, Fear Factor, So You Think You Can Dance, and Last Comic Standing.
Winners can look forward to a $50 prize and a pizza party for their department if they beat out everyone else in their category!
And, if you can’t make it out to see the spectacle on December 8th, shows from past years have found their way to YouTube and Vimeo, and we’re certain this one will be no different. We promise—these shows are always worth a watch.
Achieving our Goals
The best kind of holiday party is not just the kind where you can kick back, have a few drinks, and relax with friends. It’s the kind where you are also contributing something to the less fortunate. Because, isn’t that what the season is really about?
The Batshaw Youth and Family Centres deliver professional psychosocial, rehabilitation, and social integration services for thousands of youths in need in our province. They also provide free amenities such as services related to child placement for children who suffer from neglect, family mediation, adoption disclosure, expertise to the Superior Court on child custody, and more.
If you’re a member of our LinkNow Media family, you can do your part by getting up on stage or auctioning something off. However, we’re hoping to get more people from outside of our offices on board this year. To get involved, you can check out the donation page on our website, share it around social media, or get in touch to find out what else you can do to help children in need this holiday season.
Let’s make this year’s holidays happy for everyone!
