Tis the Season: Momiji Holiday Fundraising

201910 Holiday Treats 799x600 Program Sheet 2019 - DELIVERY FRONT

As the Holiday Season approaches, so do our annual Holiday fundraising programs!  We are pleased to offer the following programs again this year:

HOLIDAY TREAT PROGRAM:  Shortbread, Mincemeat, Gingerbread, and more…  Our volunteer bakers will soon be busy making delicious homemade cookies for Momiji to be sold to our tenants, their families and community members.  The cookies are packaged by our volunteer elves and come in various sizes and prices ranging from our Santa Superior Box (45 cookies for $20.00) to our Elves Dozen (12 cookies for $7.00).  They make a great gift – for yourself, a friend or a loved one.

VANDERMEER WINTER FUNDRAISING PROGRAM:  Vandermeer Nursery has grown high quality plants in Ajax, including poinsettias and cyclamen, for over 50 years. These high quality plants are the focus of their annual Winter Fundraising program.  The program includes winter-decorated baskets and evergreen planters in a wide range of prices.  Under the program, Momiji purchases the plants at a discount and sell them at cost. These seasonal plants and planters can spruce up your home or can be given as a gift.  We even deliver to our tenants!

Please contact Sheri-Lynn at or at 416.261.6683, ext. 259 to order or for more information.  The ordering deadline for both programs is at the end of November.  Pre-payment is required.

All proceeds from both of these fundraising activities go to Momiji’s Senior Active Living Centre to be used to fund Dance! Dance! Dance! with the National Ballet
or the Momiji Singers – two very popular programs that no longer have funding.

13th Annual Momiji Fundraising Bowlathon: June 2, 2018

bowlathon2018Momiji Health Care Society is pleased to announce its 13th Annual Momiji Fundraising Bowlathon, to be held on Saturday June 2, 2018. The Bowlathon will be held at 2 different locations again this year. Five-Pin Teams will be bowling at Parkway Bowl, starting at 1:00 pm and 10-Pin Teams will be bowling at World Bowl, starting at 12:30 pm. A Bento Box Dinner and Awards Ceremony will follow at Momiji Centre.

This is our 13th Annual Momiji Bowlathon, which has become a major Fundraiser for Momiji, in support of our Seniors. Last year’s event raised just over $50,000 which was another new a record! Thanks to you, your family and friends, and members of our Community for the support you have given Momiji. We hope that we can count on your support through your participation and sponsorship again this year. The proceeds from last year’s Bowlathon helped support Programs and Services at Momiji and in the broader community.

Bowling fees and the cost of the meal (everyone is encouraged to come for dinner) are priced to be affordable and provide no profit. Your donation and the sponsorships that you successfully solicit from family and friends and community members are the principal fundraising sources for this event.

Fill out the Team Registration Form and together with fees for bowling and dinner orders submit it to the Momiji Office or to the committee members or volunteers assigned the responsibility to collecting the forms by Monday, May 14th, 2018. Team Registration Forms will be accepted on a “first-come, first-serve” basis.

The Sponsorship Sheets and money or cheques may be handed in to the Momiji Office on or before May 31st or may be handed in at the respective Lanes (5-Pin at Parkway Bowl; 10-Pin at World Bowl) on June 2nd, when the bowlers sign in at the Registration Desk. Bowlers are encouraged to sign up for Online Donations through our Canada Helps site at . On-line donations will be credited to your Sponsorship total, plus Tax Receipts will be issued to the Donors via Email instantaneously. Additional information regarding the Fundraising Bowlathon is attached.

We look forward to seeing you at our event this year and hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to participate with your family and friends at this Fundraising Bowlathon. Team Captains, please encourage all of your team members to get sponsors. Good luck in your fundraising.
