Optimistic View – Live Event Hosted by Mikey


The Crochet Crowd, Cancer

Optimistic View – Live hosted by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd.

On March 16, 2014, I am hosting a live event in my town, Walkerton Ontario, called Optimistic View – Live! My role is to introduce guest speakers and keep the show moving forward.

Tickets are available at participating local retailers within Walkerton. You can find out more information at their Facebook Fan Page. Advance tickets are $25 CDN or $30 CDN at the door.

This event is just over 2 hours long and is showcasing tips and advice for better living in mini segments. Local students from Sacred Heart High School have been running around town filming segments that will be shown. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and raise funds for families in our local region who are dealing with childhood cancer. Simple things like paying for parking for hospitals, meals, gas and travel expenses as a result of continuous doctor visits as a family goes through the process.

During this presentation, we will hear from a couple families who will share their story to give an inside perspective.

During this event, there will be an auction of wonderful gift certificates and items for purchase. Items have been graciously donated by participating businesses/individuals within our region. Bring some extra cash as there is a 50/50 draw and opportunities to purchase goodies. Each guest will receive a ‘Take Away’ bag just for attending.

If you would like more information and would like to contribute to helping families in our region, your participation is greatly appreciated.

If you cannot attend this event but would still like to make a difference, you can visit The Events Page and make a safe and secure Paypal Donation for this cause. 100% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Optimist Club. Make A Safe and Secure Donation Here. No donation too small and is greatly appreciated.

    That is wonderful! I have been fighting cancer for 3 years now, and those little things like paying for parking are such a great gift. Those little things add up to be a lot!
