PROSPECTIVE: BLP Annual Christmas Party 2010

At 6 PM on Saturday, December 18th, 2010, the Blenz Coffee location at 599 6th Street, New Westminster, BC is going to be packed with friends of Benjamin Luk Photography looking to give something back to their community. In an annual charity event we put on each holiday season, BLP will be needing your help to fundraise for BC Children's Hospital Foundation. There will be live entertainment, raffle prizes and numerous opportunities to donate however you wish. If you would like to contribute, simply get in touch with either myself, event coordinator Sarah Thomas, or philanthropy coordinator Jason Bell.

Donations will be collected in three ways:

1) Simply show up and buy coffee! Every dollar you spend on coffee, tea, etc. adds up to a final tab I will then match in a donation to BC Children's Hospital Foundation.

2) Come out and buy raffle tickets! Tickets are on sale for $2 each, 3 for $5, or 10 for $10. Prizes include gift baskets from Build-A-Bear Workshop and Save-On-Foods, gift cards from Blenz Coffee, and the jackpot from a 50/50 draw. All proceeds go to BCCHF.

3) Donate directly from the BCCHF website! We'll have a computer and assistants standing by for you to make credit card donations directly to BC Children's Hospital Foundation. Donors will be credited on the BLP blog in three categories: <$50, $50-100 and $100+. Donors will also receive an automatic 10% discount on a future BLP photo session! Some limitations apply.

There will also be an additional $10 Blenz Coffee gift card prize for Best Tweet about the event! The winner will be announced at the end of the night and all you need to qualify is to hashtag your tweet with #blpchristmas. Also, please consider following our sponsor @BlenzCoffee and yours truly, @benjaminluk.

With your help, we can keep providing a spectacular event and in the process, raise some money for children in need. This is our seventh year holding this event and our third year doing it for charity. Please bring your family and friends, and please give generously. RSVP on Facebook here.

For additional details, please see our Facebook page or contact me directly at (604) 649-5635. I look forward to seeing you at our event, and I wish you all a happy holiday season.
