Acorn Dreamers Diminishing Coffee Party Fundraising Event

Valley Credit Union is proud to announce its support for the Acorn Dreamers Diminishing Coffee Party with proceeds going to the Cancer Society’s The Lodge That Gives. A trust account has been set up to receive funds for this initiative, which will be accepted at any branch of Valley Credit Union. (Click here to find the branch nearest you.)

The “dream” is to provide financial support to The Lodge That Gives, located in Halifax, NS, which offers free-of-charge accommodations to patients outside Halifax who require cancer treatment. Since its inception, The Lodge That Gives has helped thousands of families in easing the burden of travel by providing a warm, caring environment that offers so much more than just lodging. The Lodge is looking to expand their facilities, and appreciate any and all support provided through this and other fundraising efforts.

What is a diminishing coffee party you ask?

It is a simple coffee party (or wine party, or potluck etc…) where the first host invites seven guests to a party and charges each guest $5.00.

Within two weeks, each of the seven guests invites a further six guests to attend a coffee party, and then those six guests invite five guests to their party, and so on and so on. The process continues until 5,040 people each have one guest for coffee, having the potential to raise $68,400.00.

The time frame for this fundraiser is relatively short. It launched on September 15th and will finish in December. Click here to download/view the invitation/information about the Diminishing Coffee Party Fundraising Event.
