The Grand Theatre was packed for the third straight Ignite event, and those in attendance were treated to a variety of entertaining presentations, a creative activity, and several gastronomical delights from local vendors.
We learned how to publish our own book, the purpose of life, our dark side, traveling across the world to build homes, and that Elvis lives…and he is waiting tables at Giovanni’s!
The topics were diverse, and the crowd warm. One of the things that makes Ignite Sault such a successful community event, is the energy of the crowd. While some of the subject matter of the talks could be considered ‘hands off’ in most circles, the Ignite stage is not prejudicial. That same spirit is evident in the support that every speaker received from those in attendance.
A special HUGE shout out to Susan Hunter and Sherri Donofrio Ubriaco for delivering sensational talks on only a few day’s notice. That’s real love and commitment to the spirit of Ignite.
Every Ignite begins with a maker team competition of some sort that is both fun and challenging. Armed with just a stack of business cards, tape, and a paper bag, every table constructed something that is iconic to Sault Ste. Marie. It was absolutely amazing to see the amount of creativity expressed in these projects, and in such a short period of time!
Sushi, cupcakes, Tabbouleh, and more! Thanks to Tutto Japan, Cupcakez, Personal Fit Meal Catering, and Sherry’s Truffles for the delicious food items.
Once again, we owe a lot to our sponsors, especially to our biggest sponsor, you the passionate supporters of Ignite.
We appreciate the time these people took out of their lives, and all the big and small things they did to make Ignite Sault 6 a success:
We’ll begin gearing up for the next event, in just a couple of months! Contact us if you have an idea, or interest in helping.
A mix of veterans and new faces made it all happen:
Everyone wants to know when the videos will be up. We are hoping to have at least one up by the end of this week, and then publishing a new batch every other week. We’ll let you know each time there is something new to check out. For now, check out these awesome photos from the event:
