The Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society has partnered with Republic Bank to host their first Online Text-a-Thon and auction on Saturday 11th September 2021. Details follow in this press release from the Cancer Society. 

In collaboration with Republic Bank Limited, the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society (TTCS) is hosting its first online Text-A-Thon and Auction on Saturday 11th September 2021.  

Throughout this global pandemic, the TTCS has created ways to continue its activities and provide support to the national community in every way possible; these include education, screening, survivor network relations, and advocacy. However, one area required creative thinking; we needed to develop innovative ways to continue our fundraising initiatives.  

While the government subsidizes the TTCS there is always a need to create additional funds to keep the organization functioning at capacity so that we could continue to offer the level and standard of screening services and education programs.  

The Text-a-Thon aspect of this event (a spin-off to traditional telethons) allows people to send in their pledges via WhatsApp, Texts and Email or deposit directly to our account via our website.  

The Auction aspect functions where people can send in their bids again via Text, Whatsapp, and Email. The highest bidder wins the chance to purchase said item. The wheels are already in motion, and bidding and pledges have started, so anyone wishing to donate, pledge, or bid can do so now and support the country’s fight against cancer.  

These elements will come together at the very anticipated Online Concert event on Saturday 11th September 2021. It will all be streamed live on Facebook and Instagram from 3 pm to 6 pm. Several artiste will be performing online to create an online concert vibe so that people can join in for some fun and excitement.
