If you are involved in fundraisers and charity you know that a person sometimes struggles to find inspiration about themes for their next events. There are many ideas available online that will give you inspiration but after the golf days and the gala events why not do something old-school and fun like a movie theme? There are many ways to host a movie fundraising event and also many options to choose from. This will be a glamorous and successful event if you can pull it off because at the end of the day everyone loves the movies and the chance to bring out their inner movie star. How does one do it?
First of all you can host a premiere, it won’t be a real one but it will feel like it. Select a new movie that is about to go on the circuit and purchase advance tickets. Before you do this you would obviously need to get your audience interested so that you can bargain on the amount of people that will be attending. There are many ways to get people interested but getting creative with invitations is a good start. Click here for some great tips on making awesome invitations to your event.
Once you have people’s interest and you know more or less how many people will be attending you can decide on the price that you will charge for the tickets. The part that you charge extra will obviously go towards the cause that you are supporting. The movie house that you select might want to come on board so be sure to pitch the idea to them and the fact that you are hosting a fundraiser at their cinema. That is if you will be doing the event at a cinema. You can also host a movie night outdoors which will make it incredibly special and romantic. During this event you can make up delicious picnics which your guests can purchase and enjoy while watching the movie. During this event you can actually make use Netflix Australia on your Apple TV for a variety of movies that are exclusive to Netflix. This is a cost efficient and effective way to keep your guests entertained.
Another popular option is to go all the way and host a red carpet movie night where you theme the night more formal. People will love the idea of being dressed up as a movie star and perhaps getting an Oscar. The night should be about the cause that you are supporting so make donation cards or envelopes and perhaps feature a celebrity speaker. There are many ways to get donations at a fundraiser but it would require you to be creative and your guests need to have a great time. Make sure that you host the event at a location that is central for the guests that will be attending so that you don’t have to deal with a no-show situation.
