Party It Forward Social Media Toolkit
Thank you for helping us spread the word about Party It Forward!
COVID-19 continues to impact people around the world. To make our party more accessible and safer for everyone, Party It Forward will be taking place virtually. Even though we will not be together, we encourage you to join DARTS online as we celebrate our mission of creating connections that enrich aging.
Our services are needed now more than ever. DARTS is working to combat social isolation, which has become a bigger problem during this pandemic. Your support, no matter where you are, will go directly to our programs that help older adults and their families.
This is what you’ll need to know when promoting the event:
Join our staff on Thursday, October 22nd. Our pre-show will begin at 6:15pm, with the main program starting at 6:30pm. For approximately 45 minutes, you will be part of our biggest event of the year! There is no cost to attend and because it’s virtual, literally anyone can take part. Consider sharing with your friends, relatives and co-workers. The more the merrier!
To register, visit https://partyitforward.givesmart.com and continue through the prompts to create an account. By registering, you will be kept up to date on event news, silent auction information and more.
You will need WiFi to join in the fun. The event will be streamed online through YouTube, which you can watch from any electronic device. You will be sent information on how to bid in the silent auction through our GiveSmart partners. We suggest using two different devices so you can continue to watch the event and keep bidding on your chosen items.
Here are a few steps you can take to help us get the word out about Party It Forward:
