Team Awesome is back with another awesome fundraising party! On January 5th, 2013, Team Awesome will be kicking off the new year right with their “Instagram-o-rama” party at Club Five Sixty. This awesome charity art show will be benefiting two unique and local non-profit organizations. It will be a great time AND it will be supporting a great cause, so save the date, you won’t want to miss this!
“Instagram-o-rama” will showcase the works of local photographers and their photography skills through Instagram. 200-user submitted photos will be showcased on 19″ by 13″ high quality prints. This night is going to be filled with fantastic music, great people, and art – all to support local organizations that make a difference in the world! All proceeds from the art sales will go directly to imagine1day and The Looking Glass Foundation. These are two great organizations with very unique and important causes. imagine1day is a Vancouver-based charity whose goal is for all Ethiopians to have access to quality education funded free of foreign aid by 2030. The Looking Glass Foundation is a charity dedicated to helping young women overcome eating disorders.
The founders of Team Awesome (Sara Rose McKenna, Krista McKenna, Jered Love, Clint Omelaniec, and Shauna Beaudoin) got started in their 20’s after they noticed the lack of opportunities for young people to get involved with charitable organizations, that is, other than donating lumps of money. The founders decided to create opportunities to get involved by throwing events that would promote being young and giving back both locally and globally. Their goal is to make young individuals and professionals excited about making an impact in different corners of the world, not simply by giving money, but by having fun, engaging with the community, and promoting local art. So, come check it out, get excited, have fun, and get involved!
