Festival of Giving goes Virtual for annual fundraising party
Festival of Giving partygoers want their MTV, but they won’t get it until at least next year.
The annual fundraising gala has been turned into a virtual event Oct. 17 with a new theme – Until We Can FOG Again – because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s scheduled 1980s theme – I Want My MTV – will be saved for a future bash.
The Festival of Giving annually attracts more than 1,000 guests, many in themed costumes, and raises approximately $250,000 for the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent.
