The Story

EVENT DATE: Jun 13, 2015

EVENT TIME: 11am-2pm

EVENT LOCATION: AAA 1515 Westshore Blvd, Tampa

 

Have you ever felt like plunging into a gigantic pool of gelatin?

 

Come on, we know you have – and if you really haven’t, then you’d probably love to see some other people do it, wouldn’t you?! How about some famous people plunging into gelatin -- like some Politicians? Sports Stars? What about your favorite Tampa Bay weatherman... or an icon in local business!

 

Not only can you see them do it - - you can join them and do it too! HOW IT WORKS 1- INDIVIDUAL or TEAM? You can register as an INDIVIDUAL and take the gelatin plunge by yourself, or if you need moral support, you can register as a cool TEAM and take the plunge with a group of friends.

 

Just click SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISER (grey box above right).

 

It takes just a minute. We promise! From there you can either: •Join a friend's team that already exists •Start your own fundraiser and choose to go it alone or start your own team.

 

Once you register, your details will become part of THE LEADERBOARD (under either the TEAM or INDIVIDUAL tabs at the bottom of this page)

 

2- Each Gelatin Plunger (participant) must raise: •$500 if you are registered as an individual •$300 per person in a team (defined as two or more people)

 

In order to take the plunge on June 13th you must meet these pledge requirements. (So for example, a team of 5 must raise $1500 between everyone on the team. It is okay if someone is under and someone is over, as long as the required team total is achieved.)

 

3- But wait! There's more! Why pay the money yourself - instead, solicit pledges to meet or exceed your goal. You have like a bajillion facebook friends, and twitter followers, right?

 

Now's the time to put that social network to social good! Ask everyone you know to sponsor you by donating just a few bucks. After all, who wouldn't pay to see you plunge into a pool of gelatin? You'll be amazed how quickly your coffers fill to meet the plunge buy-in!

 

4- Once you've raised your pledge minimum (see #2 above) you're golden! We'll see you at the event! Join us at AAA on Saturday, June 13th. The location is: 1515 N West Shore Blvd, Tampa, FL 33607.

 

Be sure your swimsuit is on and your friends' cameras are at the ready, 'cuz this is gonna be a blast!

Okay, so we know you're taking the plunge because you want to have a blast but we like to reward a job well done! So we are giving a prize to each of the TOP 3 INDIVIDUAL fundraisers, and the TOP 3 TEAM fundraisers!

 

The only caveat is, that of course you have to exceed the minimum $500 buy-in, and for teams, that means everyone on your team. Otherwise, the top earners win - it's just that simple!

 

 

MEDIA GALORE (Oh and btw, we'll have a lot of local media there too, so you'll probably be on TV or in a Newspaper somewhere, all covered in gooey gelatin. Just saying.)

 

HELPING KIDS & FAMILIES 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Children's Cancer Center and its programs which serve Tampa Bay families battling childhood cancer and chronic blood disorders. So this is gonna be BIG!!!

 

A special thank you goes out to the Caspers Company for being our Presenting Sponsor!

 

You just never know who else you might know who would be willing to take the plunge for us!
