The Charity Cruise
At the beginning of May, my superior came into my office with this outrageous idea - "We are going to throw a charity cruise on June 7, make the event, and get it out there."
Of course, my initial reaction was "Wait.. what? What is a charity cruise? What about the pandemic? The guidelines? That's in a month! How will my coworker (whom I was working with at the time) and I pull that off? I've never organized an event like this before? Yea, it was quite a wild idea.
Turns out, a charity cruise is a fundraising event in which car enthusiasts, car clubs, motorcycle clubs, etc. meetup for a donation drive and car show in order to raise money for a charity or non-profit. My coworker and I had a month to somehow organize this charity cruise, featuring sponsors, a food truck, prizes, custom t-shirts, banners, radio stations, multiple cars, and motorcycle clubs while also following CDC guidelines and so much more.
We determined the simple solution was to make it a social distancing event!
