How to have a Successful Private Event or Fundraiser
So many groups have had AWESOME ideas for events and fundraisers, and sometimes all their hard work results in very little turnout. However, here are some hints and tips to making it successful. The most IMPORTANT part is getting people in the door, skating can sound intimidating or something that isn’t of interest – here are our top hints and tips to making your event SUCCESSFUL! This sounds like it could be a lot to organize, but these are tips from successful events we have seen:
- Have a Clear Purpose
- What is your event about?
- What is the purpose of your event?
- Who is welcome (specific group for exclusive party, or open to public to raise funds?)
- GOAL – what are your goals for the event? Celebrating & memories? Raising $XXX.xx amount of funds? Collecting physical good donations?
- Make sure to clarify if guests should bring CASH! We do not have an ATM.
- Activities – Besides skating, will you have raffles? trivia? guest book? photo area, special appearances?
- Theme – Does the event have a specific theme? Playlist/Music?
- What to do besides skating… Not everyone can skate, so make it fun for them too!
- Raffles & Door Prizes! Even if not skating, raffles will get people in the door. Include a raffle ticket or two with admission.
- Have people sitting on the sidelines be your “photographers” or equip them with a Polaroid camera!
- Special Appearances – Athletes, Characters, Face Painters, Balloon Artists…
- Bake Sale (must get approval) – We normally do not allow outside food or beverage, so please ask us if this option is permitted with the plan you want.
