Outreach

This committee is responsible for various outreach functions during the year intended to raise the visibility of TEAM and its initiatives. TEAM mixers were initiated in 2015 and are a good example of an outreach event.  Mixers provide an opportunity for current and prospective volunteers and members to mingle socially.  Another is the Downtown Punta Gorda Wine Walk where committee members share information about TEAM.  Outreach volunteers also man a table at each of the TEAM events to draw new people. Occasionally, a TEAM table may be set up at other local events, often in cooperation with the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce.

 

   

BEEF O’BRADY MIXER DRAWS NEW VOLUNTEERS AND FRIENDS

TEAM’s 2020 February outreach mixer was a huge success.  Sixty-eight people attended the 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. social, including new volunteers now taking on committee chair positions.  Many in attendance signed up to become a 2020 Friend of TEAM.  The food was donated by our host, Beef O’Brady’s.  Raffle prizes were donated by the Outreach Committee.  A big thank you to Beef O’Brady’s for a wonderful evening.
