IG Wealth Management and Lowerys are excited to present the revitalized Great Billboard Event in support of the United Way of Thunder Bay!

Billboard participants have been making positive impact in our community for nearly three decades, and this has historically been United Way's largest fundraising event. This year, we have a creative and fresh new concept!

Be inspired and ignite your fundraising efforts by joining the United Way to help build a stronger Thunder Bay, free from the effects of poverty. Then, on May 16th, get crafty with us by building a mini billboard collage to show what an inclusive, connected community means to you, and the role you play in it. Thanks to Community Arts and Heritage Education Project for their contribution of materials and for providing their creative guidance to help your team let their community spirit shine!

Together, we will create an image of the Thunder Bay we want to build in the form of one giant billboard.

There is no limit on how many fundraising team members you can have and all ages are welcome; more team members = more gifts = more impact. The day of the event, we have room for 4 creative members to participate in the creation of your mini billboard collage!
