Three minutes to win it!

Fast Pitch Winnipeg
Last year’s Fast Pitch Showcase at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre (The MET.)
With the help of coaches from Winnipeg’s legal, business and financial communities, charitable sector leaders have been perfecting their pitches for weeks as part of The Winnipeg Foundation’s Fast Pitch. Now, 10 finalists are ready to take centre stage!

On Thursday, March 23 at The MET, Fast Pitch culminates in a Showcase where the 10 finalists will present their organization’s story in three minutes or less in front of their peers, coaches, a panel of judges, and the public.
The finalists will compete for a share of up to $20,000 in prizes. Audience members will have their say by texting to vote for their favourite pitch.

The Fast Pitch Showcase takes place Thursday, March 23 at 7 p.m. at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre (281 Donald St.) Tickets are $25.
