JDRF – Meet A Machine Event

April 18, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Location: Kamloops Pow Wow Grounds
Admission: $10 per family/ $3 per individual

The Kamloops chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is organizing a new fundraising event called, “Meet a Machine,” which we hope will become an annual event for children, families and adults in our community. It is our plan to secure between 30 and 40 vehicles or machines that kids might be interested in looking at, and in some cases having some ‘on hands’ experiences. Machines already confirmed are the RCMP Helicopter and several RCMP vehicles, a Rock Buggy, over 16  large industrial machines, Bookmobile, Harley Davidson trailer and motorcycles, boom trucks and a dune buggy. Our plan is to set up these “machines” and invite the community to come out and spend a few hours looking at the various vehicles and learning about their functions, some with on hands. Along with that they will be plenty of entertainment such as bouncy house, face painting, picture taking boards, pony/buggy rides and pony petting and others. There will be door prizes for adult and children drawn during the event. This is planned for a fun filled family adventure not to be missed! Be onsite for the Grand Opening Ceremony at 10am inside the Pow Wow Arbor with plenty of seating.

This event is being organized as a Fundraiser for the Kamloops chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Our mission is to cure, better treat and prevent T1D (type 1 diabetes) through the support of research. In partnership with our venue sponsor the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc, we expect Meet A Machine to become an annual event for children, families and adults to enjoy.

For more information, please contact Jim Moorhead at 250-578-2678 or by email jicamoo@hotmail.com. If you have a ‘machine’ that you or your company may want to display, just contact Jim
