Thank you for thinking of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s to help with your event! As an Ottawa owned, neighborhood business, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle's is happy to support local fundraising endeavors. Due to an overwhelming number of donation requests, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s limits our fundraising support efforts to events that directly benefit child-oriented educational or health related causes for the Ottawa area only at this time. Would you like to apply for our package of goodies that will entice a silent auction bid, or perhaps be used in a raffle or as a door prize?
Your application must be accompanied by a letter of request, written on letterhead from the benefactor of the funds. You can scan and e-mail that letter to us, or fax it to 613-523-9326. Please be sure to include a brief description of your fundraiser, including the event date. Someone will respond to your request within 10 business days, and if you are to receive one of our gifts, someone will respond to your request within 10 business days. We can then arrange to have it waiting for you at the store location that is the most convenient for you!
Mrs. Tiggy Winkle's also offers this successful community fundraising idea for your school! PERSONAL SHOPPING NIGHTS, where our store is staffed exclusively for your group of supporters during an evening when the store would normally be closed. There are many ways to promote this event. Some groups have sold advance tickets and used profits from ticket sales towards their school. For this option, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s would offer a store discount to the ticket holders for the shopping night. An alternative is to have Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s donate a percentage of the total sales from the evening to help contribute to your financial goals in lieu of selling tickets and discounts. Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s will also donate cool door prizes for the evening at the store, to help generate some extra excitement for the event! Some groups chose to turn this in to a festive social evening with beverages and hors d’ourves. We are open to any suggestions you may have to help create this event for your school! This is offered at either our 809 Bank Street or 315 Richmond Road locations during November. Contact us for more details, spaces fill quickly!
