:excited Play With Your Food is back for its sixth year!   :excited

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

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 $35,000 for Souls Harbour!

Twenty-four hours of fun for gamers of all ages and interests will run from 10:00AM on Saturday. October 13 until 10:00AM on Sunday, October 14.  Play With Your Food culminates in this 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.

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!

Registration Instructions

Participants in the Play With Your Food pre-register as teams from 1 to 6 members.  To pre-register your team for the event, fill out the short survey 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 HERE.  Please provide your name and your team’s name as a personal message with your donation so that we can easily track your 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.  Each team will be given an online donation page once registration is completed.

Once you are registered, we encourage all participants to follow our Play With Your Food Facebook page for event updates, fundraising opportunities, announcements, and more!

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) + $150 minimum funds raised
•             Team of three: ($25 registration fee x 3) + $225 minimum funds raised
•             Team of four: ($25 registration fee x 4) + $300 minimum funds raised
•             Team of five: ($25 registration fee x 5) + $375 minimum funds raised
•             Team of six: ($25 registration fee x 6) + $450 minimum funds raised 

If you wish to have a team of 7 or more participants, your team must first meet the minimum fundraising target for a team of 6.  You will then be allowed to add additional members to your team (which will also increase your minimum fundraising goal by $75 per additional member).  If you want to add team members, 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 teams to set far loftier goals to help us surpass our goal of $35,000!
