One of the most happening events that takes place in Quadwave every year has to be QSanthe. As the name suggests, Quadwave turns into a market of sorts where employees can buy a number of cute and useful things and these are typically sourced from WARDS, PAPCP, Spastics Society and APD. The profits that we make goes towards the support of QCares.
With a rural/village theme this year, we set off to create a buzz for QSanthe a week before the event. We started sending out rural themed posters. We followed up with email, intranet, social sites and made sure that everyone got to know about QSanthe. We also told employees to come dressed in ethnic attire.
On the day of the event, we had to turn Quadwave into a village. We made a scare crow and placed it at the venue, decorated it with lights and did pretty rangoli designs. When we were done, it looked like we were really at a village market.
At QSanthe this year, we had five stalls with products from WARDS, PAPCP, Spastic Society, and APD. Some of the products that we sold were pretty candles, diyas and table covers from WARDS, gift bags, envelopes and photo frames from PAPCP, pen stands, card holders and gorgeous jute bags from Spastics Society and some lush potted plants from APD.
We also had a stall with delicious home made brownies and yummy chocolate truffles.
Going with our village theme, we had a stall where we sold buttermilk instead of the usual juices and soft drinks and going by the reception we got, it was a huge hit indeed! The event started at 5.30 pm And as the market opened, a huge crowd entered the village premises. All the people dispersed to different stalls and checked out the products on display. While some people didn’t show much interest, there were others who picked up the products immediately. Girls were captivated by the Spastic Society products because they had different varieties of cute jute bags. Some bought candles and diyas for decoration. The stall which attracted the most people was the food stall. People showed a lot of enthusiasm in buying brownies, truffles, butter milk and the veg rolls. The market was on a high pace for one hour. After that most of the people left.
The event was a huge success. We at QCares would really like to thank those who took out some of their precious time and joined the QSanthe. Apart from these people, we would also like to thank the volunteers for their support and enthusiasm, without whom the event could not have been a success.
