Carassauga Charity and Community Challenge

Categories: Events


Armagh is excited to announce our involvement in Carassauga’s Charity & Community Challenge (aka CC Challenge) on May 22, 23 and 24, 2015. This is an innovative way to raise funds and awareness for our organization. We cordially invite you to participate, as your involvement would allow us to raise awareness and funds in support of women and children who have been victimized by domestic violence. By participating in the CC Challenge, you would visit the Carassauga Festival of Cultures, Ontario’s largest multicultural festival, and complete fun tasks/challenges. If you successfully complete a minimum of 5 tasks in different pavilions, then you will be entered into a draw to win some really cool prizes!
