WHO & WHAT is FUNPASS?
Kelly Petchiny-Marits is the founder of FUNPASS – Your PASS to FUN! Kelly graduated from the University of Calgary Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Education/minor in Business. She worked for several years in health clubs, entertainment business with radio, shopping malls, golf courses and special festivals when she decided to pursue her own passions and creative outlet and started her own company FUNSEEKERS, which consisted of FUN Parties & Silly FUN Wear.
The silly designs were initially created for friends but as they became so popular, she decided to open a Kiosk on the 8th Avenue Mall in downtown Calgary to sell to ‘fun-seeking’ tourists. Being creative with marketing and promotions, they were soon available through local stores as well as tradeshows and special shirt designs were created for ski hills, sporting teams, schools and fitness related programs which grew to include cities throughout Alberta and BC.
In 2003, FUNSEEKERS became FUNPASS and with a team of FUNseekers she put on several parties a year throughout Vancouver BC and the Lower Mainland as well as Victoria, Calgary, Kelowna and Toronto. With the advantages of the internet, she opened an online store where her Silly Stuff products could now be purchased through the Cafepress FUNPASS store as well as the special order designs are still available by request.
After attending the fabulous Every Woman in the World Conference May 2013 in Whister BC, she was introduced to DANCEPL3Y (dance-play) and felt her calling to get back into the DANCE/FITNESS FUN and helping kids and adults to MOVE, PLAY and be totally AWESOME! Kelly invites you to COME OUT & PLAY and is starting up classes on the Sunshine Coast British Columbia where she is living now with her husband and 2 fabulously FUN daughters.
So here we are…it’s all about the FUN! Living life to the fullest… laughing out loud and … playing and having fun with lots of friends!
