Spirit of Kimberley event

Innovative networking event planned for Kimberley's non-profit organizations

If you are involved in a non-profit organization of any kind in Kimberley, you will want to keep November 15, 2012 on your calendar. On that date, at the Sparks Youth Centre, the Kimberley and District Community Foundation (KDCF), College of the Rockies-Kimberley Campus and the Kimberley Happiness Project, supported by Columbia Basin Trust, are co-hosting a unique networking event, specifically planned to recognize the important roles non-profits and volunteer organizations play in Kimberley’s health and vitality.

“The evening will provide a fun and engaging opportunity for leaders in Kimberley’s non-profit sector to identify common challenges and aspirations that relate to the overall health and sustainability of the sector,” said Ingrid Liepa of the Happiness Project.

That same evening the Kimberley and District Community Foundation will hand out their fall grants to community groups.

Two representatives are being invited from every non-profit organization in Kimberley to bring their voices and perspectives to the conversation.

The event goes from 6-9 pm on Thursday November 15, at the Spark Youth Centre, with The Kimberley Happiness Project contributing a $250 door prize for a participating non-profit organization.  For more information, please email kimberleyhappiness@gmail.com .
