PITCH YOUR PROJECT - COMMUNITY RECREATION NETWORK GATHERING - OCTOBER 25

Wednesday, October 25 from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Terwillegar Recreation Centre

During the October 25, 2017 South West Recreation Network Event , the City invites your organization to bring forward your community project to pitch to the Network. These project pitches could be for a community event, a new program you want to offer, or even to help build new connections with neighbours or groups. These projects must be completed in 2017.

This will be a “Dragon’s Den” style of presentation and will be voted on by other members of the network in attendance. It is our hope this will inspire participants to share some of their great ideas, as well as get support to move these projects forward. The City of Edmonton will be funding up to $3,000 toward community projects that evening.

Submit your Project Idea by October 20th to: Anna.Vesala@edmonton.ca
