"a high-end venue in the heart of Waterloo available to non-profit organizations, community groups and businesses for meetings and events." (http://www.cigicampus.org/services)

By holding an informative discussion panel we will both raise awareness of development issues, of INDEVOURS, and as a bonus, I believe we also will have the ability to raise additional funds. If the space could be used for free or at a low cost, we could make donations voluntary or at a low amount, and be sure to sell tickets to the Global Gala or any other events we decide upon. As for the location, I feel we could even hold smaller more intimate discussions at cafes around the city willing to lend us their space for an evening (they would gain promotion and people will spend while there). Some suggestions could be at the Yeti Cafe, a personal acquaintance of mine who owns it already said she would seriously consider it (theyeticafe.com). Let me know what you think, is this tangible? Too far away from what we want to do? Too complex to plan?
