Five Benefit Fundraising Twists For Charity Events
Benefit fundraising organizations that add new twists to their charity events or galas each year will keep sponsors and guests returning happily year after year. Need new ideas for the live auction that will raise money? Here are some TWISTS to try for your upcoming events.
1. Craft Beers
This is definitely a twist to add to any event that adds tasting pleasure. A hometown brewery will usually donate the beer and their time to have a targeted audience trying their IPA speciality beers.
2. Flash Mob
Yes, you have seen videos of a Flash Mob breaking out just about anywhere, then why not at your next charity event? The flash mob can begin out in meet and greet rooms and then moves the guest into the banquet room! This works great for galas that have trouble getting their program started on time. Make sure to video tape the performance and use it for years to come to advertise your event. Contact your local schools to perform.
3. Golf Tournament: Sponsorship Hole in One
At your next golf tournament fundraiser, excite your sponsors and guests with a new twist. Each sponsorship is assigned a tee off hole! When the players arrive at the tee, businesses will be welcoming the four some and hand out gifts to the players personally. What a great way to increase sponsorship and make your golfers happy.
4. Golden Raffle Ticket Live Auction Item
Start raising money months before the event by selling GOLDEN RAFFLE TICKETS. The raffle ticket allows the winner to pick a live auction item of their choice before the live auction begins. (It can be just certain items) Most packages that are trip oriented can be sold at the event twice if consignment auction items are used. Imagine your event making a profit before the night begins plus making one lucky raffle winner very happy!
5. Celebrity Life Auction “Selfie”
At your next live auction charity event with a “FAMOUS” celebrity, promote a live auction “selfie”. The first item up to bid is a “selfie” with the celebrity taken immediately up on the stage. This adds excitement in the crowd, makes money for the organization, and creates FREE advertising for the event year after year. #Tagging your event and the “selfie celebrity” on all the social medias is a great way to support your own organization!
