« on: February 29, 2016, 04:40:44 PM »
:excited Play With Your Food is back for its fourth year!   :excited


Play With Your Food is a 24-hour board gaming marathon that raises funds for Souls Harbour Rescue Mission of Regina, Saskatchewan.


Twenty-four hours of fun for gamers of all ages and interests will run from 10:00AM on Saturday, October 15th until 10:00AM on Sunday, October 16th.  Anyone who is up to the challenge is encouraged to game the entire 24 hours!

Play With Your Food culminates in the 24-hour tabletop gaming marathon but the fundraising initiatives thrive throughout the year.  Participants solicit donations and hold a wide variety of enjoyable events, tournaments, raffles and more in the months leading up to the event.


The event will once again be held at the Souls Harbour Rescue Mission facility at the corner of Dewdney Avenue and Athol Street in Regina.


Souls Harbour Rescue Mission is a Regina based non-profit organization that works to help those less fortunate in the community through a variety of services and programs, such as their soup kitchen, men and women's emergency shelter, clothing distribution, long-term addiction recovery program for women, subsidized daycare, affordable housing and youth programming.

This year's goal is to raise $30,000 for Souls Harbour!


There will be a limit of 120 participants for the Play With Your Food event but everyone is encouraged to participate in the fundraising events that will happen throughout the year!  Keep a lookout in this forum for announcements.


Get your teams together because registration will open soon.  Instructions for registration will be posted in this thread.

Registration Instructions

Participants in the Play With Your Food event must pre-register in teams for the purposes of fundraising.  Initially, teams can include 1 to 6 members.  (Teams of 7 or more can be created only after a team has achieved the minimum fundraising requirement for a team of 6.  See below for more details.)

Each team will be given a donation page at the Canada Helps website where friends, family and businesses can donate money with the donation going towards your team’s fundraising goals.

Once you have your team assembled, pre-register your team for the event here.  This survey should only be filled out once per team by the team captain/designate. 

Following the survey, each participant must also pay a $25 registration fee by making a donation in that amount here.  Please provide your name and your team’s name as a personal message with your donation so that we can easily track registration.  (Please include the names of all the persons you are paying for if you are paying more than one registration fee.)

A team is not considered fully registered for the event until all its participants have paid the $25 registration fee.  Once a team is fully registered, a Canada Helps donation page will be created for the team.  The link to the donation page will be emailed to the team captain.

Fundraising Goals

Each team is given a minimum fundraising target depending on the number of people in a team (1-6).  Teams must achieve at least this minimum to participate in the 24-hour event.   The minimum fundraising targets are as follows:

•             Individual: ($25 registration fee) + $75 minimum funds raised
•             Team of two: ($25 registration fee x 2) + $100 minimum funds raised
•             Team of three: ($25 registration fee x 3) + $125 minimum funds raised
•             Team of four: ($25 registration fee x 4) + $200 minimum funds raised
•             Team of five: ($25 registration fee x 5) + $275 minimum funds raised
•             Team of six: ($25 registration fee x 6) + $350 minimum funds raised 

If you wish to have a team of 7 or more participants, you must first register a team of 6 (or fewer) and meet the minimum fundraising target for a team of 6.  You will then be allowed to add additional members to your team.  This will also push your minimum fundraising goal up accordingly.  If you want to add team members after you've already registered, send an email to playwithyourfoodinitiative@gmail.com or send me a private message at this site.

Remember, these are just the minimum fundraising requirements -- we challenge each team to far exceed these modest goals to help us surpass our overall goal of raising $30,000!
