Mid Summer Party

    Hi All,

    I am organising a Mid Summer Party to raise funds for a charity that is close to my heart.

    I have contacted all local businesses for sponsorship, I have been in touch with local secondary schools to hold No Uniform Days to raise funds,

    The event will be a 3 course meal followed by a band and DJ.

    I plan to hold a raffle on the night as I have been sponsored lovely raffle prizes.

    Just wondering would anyone have any other ideas how to raise some more funds, on the night or even before the event

    I have heard of silent auctions & auctions but I don't think it will suit the crowd.

    Would love if anyone had any suggestions... let me know thanks a million

    One idea is to put small tubs on the tables or the bar with something about your cause on them and ask people when they buy a drink to put there lose change in, always a good way of making money and the more people drink the more you get.
