While most students turn to bake sales and Book of Savings fundraisers as part of their Creative Communications’ graduating project, two Red River College students are taking a non-traditional approach.
Krystalle Ramlakhan and Hannah Rose Pratt are partnered with Canad Inns Clubs to present “Electric Circus, Bright + Tight Edition” at Area Nightclub on Thursday. The fundraiser is part of their project coordinating the 2012 Creative Communications Media Awards (CCMAs).
“We wanted to start our fundraising efforts in a big, non-traditional way,” Pratt said. “Social media, traditional advertising and word of mouth are all strategies we’ve used to promote our event.”
The CCMAs are a large scale awards reception featuring Creative Communications alumni and media personalities presenting journalism, public relations, advertising, and media production awards to students of the two-year RRC program and prominent alumni in the community.
Tickets are available at the door, or online.
