Tigris Promo Staff Show What Event Fundraising Is All About!
After raising close to $12,000 last year in only two days, Tigris Personnel was contacted once again by DJ Steaks to assist with their event fundraising initiatives, only this time on SIX special events!
For the last 25 years, DJ Wiley, founder of DJ Steaks, has been buying and selling the finest quality meats to the finest quality establishments all over the world. Realizing his success, Wiley decided to make these same remarkable cuts of meat available to his friends and family. DJ Steaks continues to grow as a well-known online establishment that sells high end certified Angus beef imported from the US and are a firm believer in giving back to the community.
Each year, DJ Steaks executes their event fundraising initiatives at selective private ski-clubs across Blue Mountain in Collingwood. This years fundraisers were held at Devil’s Glen , Osler , Craigleith and Georgian Peaks Ski Clubs. Two of the six fundraisers were dedicated to “Women’s Day” that coincided with charities directed at females. The remaining four were targeted at males in support of “Men’s Day”.
Tigris Personnel Does A Job “Well Done” For DJ Steaks Event Fundraising!
A team of 4-6 events staff were contracted per event and stationed at the ‘DJ Steaks’ booth to help assist with ticket sales. Staff also roamed throughout the venue to encourage guests to participate in DJ Steaks event fundraising. At $20 a ticket, skiers and snowboarders spun the DJ Steaks prize wheel and were entered into a draw for a chance to win one of the several Texas Mickeys . This event fundraising technique ensured every spinner was a winner, taking home either a box of steaks or $20, $30, or $40 off their next purchase.
In total over $25,000 was raised for the charities which included the special Olympics, Osler ski hill safety, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Track 3. The event fundraising was a huge hit and we hope to return to these events in 2014.

Not even a Huge Snow Storm can get in the way of MotionBall’s Fundraising Development!
MotionBall’s fundraising development for 2013 kicked off with a bash in Toronto. This past weekend, I had the tremendous opportunity to be invited to the 12th annual MotionBall Toronto Gala, with Tigris Personnel’s national account director, Serena Schwab. She was personally invited to observe the evening for plans to potentially assist motionball with events in the future.
With a mandate of introducing next generation volunteers and donors to the Special Olympics movement, Motionball creates integrated social and sporting events to bring the fun back into giving. The gala is one of many that is executed nationally to support fundraising for the Special Olympics. And so, on Fri., Feb. 8, Muzik Nightclub was transformed into a black-tie (optional) Winter Wonderland, presented by Air Miles as the title sponsor. The organizer upgraded our general admission tickets to VIP so we could critique the entire event, from start to finish. This amazing upgrade allowed early access to the night with sampling priority to the interactive gourmet food stations and exclusive entertainment.
Even being hit with the worst snow storm in 5 years, MotionBall’s fundraising development was bigger and better than ever – with over 2,000 people filling the venue. Guests arrived to the sounds of a 44-piece symphony orchestra performing a Beatles montage along with complimentary champagne. Morning show host Melissa Grelo successfully emceed the evening and detailed the highlights of the gala, magnifying the crowds anticipation.
Fundraising Development That “Pays Off” for a Great Cause!
After taking advantage of the open bar, “All Chocolate” buffet and Iceberg Vodka Lounge, charity supporters rushed to the “ice rink” dance floor to see Crash Dex, DJ’s Skratch Bastid and DJ Efsharp perform.
The fundraising development held not just 1 but 2 silent auctions! Auction items included spa packages, dinner certificates to Toronto’s top restaurants, a Cervelo bike and more. Dozens of guests were happy to participate, including our director who ended up taking home a print of Michael Jordan’s infamous slam dunk from the free-throw line. There were also raffle tickets sold, 3 for $100 or 10 for $250, with a chance to win an all-expenses paid trip to New York or Las Vegas.
This year’s 12th Annual Toronto MotionBall Gala raised $260,000 net profit. A big thank you and congratulations goes out Paul Etherington, Chairman and Co-Owner & Director of Toronto Gala and his team for all their hard work and dedication. We were happy to attend and support such a wonderful cause. We look forward to being involved with future events in Toronto and across the country.
Promotional Marketing Campaign puts the Clothes of Gym Members to the “Tide Test”
Tigris Personnel is proud to have partnered up with Zoom Media to assist in the planning and execution of a major promotional marketing stunt.
At 24 gyms in Canada’s 3 largest cities – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver – fitness members were invited to participate in a unique, never-been-done-before promotional marketing activation! Tigris Personnel’s Tide Ambassadors asked participants to “Sweat their Workout, not Their Laundry”… and we literally collected their laundry from Jan. 25-Feb. 4, so we could sort, wash, dry, fold – and present it back to them, along with a FREE bottle of Tide on Mon., Feb. 6.
Fitness members were approached by Tigris Personnel’s brand ambassadors and educated on the promotion to encourage maximum participation. Our staff took care of absolutely everything to ensure members had nothing to worry about – except their workout! From collecting clothes to be laundered to carefully washing, drying and folding the items, our team turned an amazing idea into a truly memorable experience.
This promotional marketing campaign gave consumers the chance to experience the brand’s “Tide plus Febreze Freshness Sport” detergent in a completely new way! This detergent utilizes a unique combination for laundry designed to stand up against sweat and keep work out clothes smelling fresh!
The purpose of this promotional marketing program was for consumers to experience Tide’s latest and greatest product in a completely unique and memorable way. The result? Mission accomplished!!! Each participant received their freshly laundered clothing wrapped and secured in a colorfully branded Tide bag along with a book of coupons. As an additional value add, participants ALSO received a full bottle of ‘Tide Sport’ so their experience with the brand could continue – at their own home.
