DODGE WATER BALLOON CHALLENGE – Let’s put some fun in fundraisers!

CommunityWorx (formerly the HopeMarket) is making a splash with its new fundraiser the “Dodge Water Balloon Challenge”. The Challenge kicks off the CommunityWorx Annual Giving Campaign – a brand new fundraising campaign that will include a series of fundraisers throughout the year. The goal of the CommunityWorx Annual Giving Campaign this year (its premiere year) is $10,000. The 2021-22 campaign will end on June 30, 2022.

And the fun has already started!

The Dodge Water Balloon Challenge is running every Friday in August from 3 to 4 p.m. at the HopeWorx office…outside of course! On Friday, August 6th, National Water Balloon Day, many people showed up to buy a few balloons and throw them at the targets – some brave HopeWorx staff.  Staff included: Ameika, Maria, Sue and Penny. Buy one water balloon for $5 or buy three water balloons for $10.

Sue Shannon, Executive Director of HopeWorx, Inc., the parent company of CommunityWorx, said after the challenge that they were able to raise $580. Check out the HopeWorx, Inc. website to follow the event and future fundraisers at https://www.hopeworxinc.org/what-we-do/communityworx/.

The next Dodge Water Balloon Challenge is on Friday, August 13th, from 3 to 4 p.m. The staff from CommunityWorx and all of HopeWorx is hoping to see you there. All proceeds from the Challenge go toward purchasing supplies for Arts and Crafts Club at CommunityWorx.
