Community Counselling and Resource Centre Launches Registration for Juke Box Mania

PETERBOROUGH - Community Counselling and Resource Centre (CCRC) announces registration is open for its 13th annual Juke Box Mania fundraising event. As of today, community members can sign up with a team of 8 to compete in a fun “name that tune” competition on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.

With funds raised from the event going towards the four main services that CCRC provides including the Housing Resource Centre, Credit Counselling Services, Professional Counselling and the Community Service Order program, CCRC has set a fundraising goal of $35,000.

To help reach their goal, CCRC has announced this year’s Juke Box Heroes teams:

· Casey Ready (Executive Director) & Charlie Martin (President)

· Ben Van Veen (CCRC supporter) & Catherine Hanrahan (long-time Juke Box Mania Emcee)

· Alicia Doris (CCRC Board Member) & Bob Campbell (former Chair, Juke Box Mania & former CCRC Board member)

· Vince Bierworth (CCRC supporter) & Mike Judson (CCRC supporter)

Working in teams of two, CCRC’s ‘Juke Box Heroes’ will compete against the other to raise the most money for CCRC before Juke Box Mania on Friday, April 27th.

Casey Ready, Executive Director of CCRC and a Juke Box Hero this year highlights why the Heroes program is important. “Juke Box Heroes helps CCRC reach our fundraising goal for Juke Box Mania by reaching an audience that may not otherwise hear about CCRC. This is peer-to-peer program allows Juke Box Heroes to reach out to their networks for support and to share an important story that has personal significance to them. It is a fun competition for the Heroes teams as we all compete against each other to raise the most money for CCRC.”

CCRC also announced the launch of corporate table sales. Local businesses can purchase sponsorship tables at Juke Box Mania starting at $1000. Businesses purchasing corporate tables will receive VIP status and profile at this traditionally sold-out event of over 450 people.

Juke Box Mania will take place on Friday, April 27th starting at 6:30 p.m. The event will feature 10 rounds of Juke Box Mania’s “Name that tune” game, a silent auction, and appetizers from local caterers including Amusé Coffee Co., Black Honey, Chasing the Cheese, EC Catering, Kenner Collegiate's Culinary Program, La Hacienda, NaKeD Chocolate, Primal Cuts, Rare Grill House, and Shafiq’s Taste of India and Silk Roots Fusion Cuisine.

CCRC welcomes those wishing to register a Corporate Sponsor Table (starting at $1,000) or Community Table ($520) to act quickly, as tables traditionally sell fast.
