Announcing the First Annual TILC Community Gala - A Night in Vegas!
On September 30th, 2017 we'll host the first annual TILC Gala fundraiser, and it promises to be a great time! Definitely not your normal gala or fundraiser, we're bringing you a Vegas-like night in the Grand Ballroom at the University of Toledo Radisson hotel. This will be a fun and engaging way for all TILC Community Organizational Members to introduce themselves to individuals in the communities we serve as well as potential funders that can support their efforts. There'll be five themed zones to visit in addition to a connected room for childcare, where the kids will also be entertained:
“Cosmopolitan” zone – Informal community gathering area in center of room with bar for unstructured networking and socializing. Stand up tables will encourage people to move around and mingle.
“Convention Center” zone – introductions to TILC members via booths, demos, and presentation. We'll offer visitors a passport to encourage visits to all booths with members stamping passports, and collecting all the stamps wins you a prize.
“New York New York” zone – The place to meet people via a fun, structured networking activity. Imagine a fun and engaging “speed dating” scenario in which you'll briefly meet as many other community members as possible.
“Monte Carlo” zone – Area for casino games and competition. Upon check-in at the area you'll receive “funny money” from the “bank” to gamble with and you can play Vegas-like table games like blackjack, poker, roulette, etc. The people who end up with the most “money” win prizes.
“Paris Paris” zone – To bring out the creativity in all of us! A community art project, photo booth with costumes, and a silent auction fundraiser.

March 2015 art of transformation interview
March 2015 Cal Loo Interview on The Art of Transformation with Mara Evenstar Mara and guest Cal Loo of Intentional Legacies explore ways to navigate life’s biggest transitions with intention and grace. Some transitions are a natural part of the lifespan like birth, puberty and death. Others are cultural, and made important by our society or spiritual community, such as marriage, graduation, coming of age, spiritual or religious initiation, and even endings like divorce. All of these transitions, when marked intentionally, can help ease the way into releasing a previous stage, and preparing for the new roles, identity, or responsibilities that come with the new stage. It is especially powerful if these transitions can be marked in community, strengthening our ties and sense of belonging. We will discuss why rites of passage are especially relevant and important in today’s world and not just hold-over traditions from the long past. (Live air date 3/11/15)
