Tips in Planning a Fundraising Dinner that Represents a Worthy Cause
Joining or contributing in a charity is one way of showing love and care for the less fortunate people, even animals. If you are one of those individuals who got a golden heart and want to help others, you can start doing charity by planning a fundraising dinner in honor of your favorite cause. This cause could be a project raising money for cancer victims, the restoration of Mother Nature, sending the less fortunate kids to school or aiding in the protection of animals. The important thing here is to plan an event where your guests will feel great about being invited to your dinner since they’ll be able to spend their money into something meaningful.
The first and most important thing you need to do when planning a fundraising dinner is to decide on what kind of party you would like to have. You can arrange a dinner party where guests can pay for a set fee, according to their budget or how much they are willing to donate. If you don’t want to have three course meals, then you can instead have a simple table setting or buffet dinner but make sure it will be worth your guests’ donation. Another charity dinner idea is to leave a box wherein guests are free to choose how much they would like to contribute in the charity bucket.
Next thing to do after choosing the theme for your dinner party is to make an invitation that will entice your target guests to really want to go into your party. You can do this by writing a paragraph or two about the charity you want to help and why you would like to raise money for that cause. Show sincerity in your invitation but don’t forget to make it interesting, giving a hint that aside from being able to help, they will surely have a great time.
Lastly, to make the event more meaningful, try inviting a representative from your chosen charity group to give some information and the importance of the cause you want to aid. This will surely make your guests feel overwhelmed of the idea that they are able to help a worthy cause. So, although, planning a fundraising dinner is not always easy to organize, it is surely worth I and emotionally rewarding both for you and guests.
