Are you ready to usher in the new year with some Awesome? Join us at 6:30PM, Thursday, 17 January at the Kingston Yacht Club for our January Pitch Party! Pitches kick off at 7:00PM, so grab a drink and head upstairs to claim a seat before then. Spread the word, and make sure you RSVP on the Facebook Event so we know you’re coming! Everyone is welcome, and the event, as always, is free.
Stick around after the event, because we’ll be having Awesome Hours after the $1000 no-strings-attached microgrant is given away. What are Awesome Hours? They’re like office hours, but way more fun. It’s a time for anyone to sit down with trustees, volunteers, past winners, and like-minded people to talk about anything – the Awesome Foundation, a pitch idea you’ve had, getting involved, or just chat about whatever’s on your mind.
We’ve also got a special surprise for you during the event, so we’re extra excited this month! We’re also welcoming guest trustee Bryant Tong for the month and are looking forward to having him participate.
Awesome Kingston has been around for over a year in the Limestone City, having held its inaugural pitch party in November 2011. Since then, we’ve funded some great projects geared toward making Kingston even more awesome. We give away $1,000 no-strings-attached microgrants funded by 10 trustees from the community. Got an idea yourself? Come out to the pitch night to see what we’re all about, and apply through the website!
