Want to host a successful fundraiser? If you make your charity event a memorable experience for guests, you’ll see the donations roll in for your good cause. How to host a stylish charitable event: Select a beautiful venue unlike the standard (boring) banquet hall, create an unforgettable ambiance with thoughtful decor, and rouse the crowd with engaging entertainment. Consider these tips and ideas to make your charity event the talk of the town, and more importantly, to make sure it emphasizes your cause. Fundraising never looked so good.
Start with a beautiful venue
A memorable charitable event venue makes the most impact at your event and helps create the right ambiance for your fundraiser. It’s much simpler (and often less expensive) to start with a venue that is stunning on its own rather than dressing up a blasé banquet room.
Solicit donations for your decor
It’s important to keep your charity event budget tight so that you’re not wasting funds that could be donated to the charity. To help cut costs while also creating a stylish charity event atmosphere, solicit local florists, party rental companies, caterers, and professional event coordinators for their donated goods and services. It’s a win-win for everyone involved: The donating company gets to show off their services at an event filled with potential customers, they get a tax write-off, and they’re helping a good cause. You get beautiful centerpieces, decor, and food for free.
Get people moving
You don’t want to host a stuffy charitable event where everyone is stuck in their seats all night. Guests get bored, tune out the focus of the event, and become anxious to leave. Instead, make sure guests are moving throughout the event. Set up appetizer or dessert stations so there’s mingling before and after the meal. Place informational tables, a silent auction, or a photo booth around the room to encourage a flow of guests.
