We are throwing a party! As part of our events management module, the students of Hospitality, Service and Tourism in Tamwood Careers (Vancouver) are preparing for their ‘Canada 150 Years Young’ party! Our teams have been getting ready for this event for a month and on Friday April 21st, 2017 12:00pm we are inviting you to celebrate with us.
The Marketing and Advertising team have been working hard to get everyone involved – since we have attendees from all over the world from different cultural backgrounds, we created a brand ambassador called “Larry Tamoose” who posts regular Facebook updates such as fun facts about Canada, competitions, pizza giveaways and more. We have been working side by side with all of the teams, providing them with advertising support for their activities. We also created a video congratulating Canada on their birthday all in different languages!
The Sponsorship team sent over 80 emails to potential sponsors and visited more than 20 companies to get them involved with the event – the result was very successful and we have some amazing prizes to give away, such as:
- Trip to Whistler, Trip to Seattle and Vancouver Whitecaps tickets sponsored by Discover Canada
- Double pass to Hop-on, Hop-off Tour
- 8 entrance tickets to the Vancouver Lookout
- TESOL Diploma worth $600 sponsored by JnD Education
- 4 day passes to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
And you can win all these prizes by entering our raffle!
The Fundraising team focused on selling food like cookies, Brazilian deserts (Brigadeiro) and pizza. Most of our profits for the party came from the raffle and we have been working side by side with Sponsorship to get really good prizes that will get the students interested and excited.
The Decorations team are working so hard to turn the second floor into a Canadian wonderland with so many representative symbols of Canadian culture and traditions put together (from scratch!) such as maple leaf trees, totem poles and of course all in red and white!
Food & Beverages have been preparing a menu based on Canadian traditional food that everyone can enjoy which will be self-serve and will have displays which list all the ingredients of the dishes so you will be certain of what you are eating. We will have appetizers to desserts and food by “Pizza Vancouver”, “Fresh Pizza” and “Arturo’s Mexico to Go” who kindly donated some of their delicious dishes for us.
The activities on the day of the event will be adrenaline filled! We got inspired by the Canadian sports and culture so have games from hockey to curling, traditional balloon games, puzzles and much more. Remember that in most of the games you can gain prizes and don’t forget to join us in the karaoke to a sing-off with your friends!
We hope to see you there so we can celebrate together!
