CYP Contest Makes a Splash

The Columbus Young Professionals Club invited NNEMAP Food Pantry to participate in the M.A.D. Splash Challenge, a three-round fundraising event–with eliminations. Yikes!

Don’t worry, though–we got this. We are seasoned competitors in the fundraising contest arena. We stunned the competition by nearly taking the top prize in the United Way’s “Knock Out Poverty” event in 2019 and racked up lots of extra prize money for our troubles.

We were leading in the final days of the Aetna “Voices of Health” voting game in 2019 before getting swamped at the last minute and finishing just out of the money. Aetna generously awarded us $5,000 for being such an inspiration.

So…we can do this! How, you ask? Simple.

From APRIL 5-19, we need to make donations through the NNEMAP Food Pantry page through The Columbus Foundation’s Giving Store site. Don’t worry–we’ll send a link to make it easy.

If we don’t finish in the top 8, that’s where the splash comes in–a member of our fundraising team will be taking a plunge in the pool at Taylor House Apartments. Brrrr!!!!

If…I mean WHEN we advance to ROUND 2, we’ll need social media support–like our posts, comment on them and share them with your friends.

ROUND 3 ends with a limited budget ($100) creative challenge–the top 4 teams advancing out of round 2 compete for the top prize, a $500 bonus donation, and a lifetime of fame and notoriety for winning the first ever M.A.D. Splash!

WHAT WE NEED:

*Donors! Any amount will help us get there. We’ll send links when the contest goes live on Monday, April 5.

*Social Media Support–like, comment, and share NNEMAP Food Pantry’s posts to get us to the final round.

*Creative Thinkers/Insect Architects–in case we need to build a beehive!

SOUND LIKE FUN? We thought so! Please join our M.A.D. Splash Fundraising Team today! E-mail Sean Becker, Director of Development & Marketing at sean@nnemappantry.org or call 614-297-9935 to find out how you can help!
