FRIDAY, AUGUST 10: A fundraiser that promises to embarrass well-known members of the community is in the works.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda will host the first non-talent/dare fundraiser event called “How much would you pay to see me…?”.
The event will take place on August 29 at Harbour Nights.
Patrina O’Connor- Paynter, fund development marketing communications director of the charity, said: “Well-known members of the community and corporate world have volunteered to raise funds for the charity by doing a dare on stage if members of the community pledge to see them do it.
“These dares or non-talents will be performed live on stage at Harbour Nights on August 29th.
“Each participant is aiming to raise at least $1,500 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda.”
Dares include eating a chocolate covered bug, getting a pie in the face, skipping to nursery rhymes while wearing a tutu and rapping lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air in full costumes.
