Want a have a fun and successful fundraiser? Try a Casino Night Fundraiser!
Bake sales, car washes, fun runs... What do these have in common? They are the traditional ways that organizations try to fund their programs. If you are looking for a fun and entertaining fundraiser, consider turning your event into a Casino Night! Guests will purchase tickets for the event and, in exchange, will be given "funny money" to play casino table games which can include Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Texas Hold-em Poker. Your guests will be entertained by professional dealers and will be given a night they won't forget!
If you're thinking about a casino night fundraiser, here are some helpful tips:
1) Hire a Professional Casino Party Company
By hiring a professional casino party company, you will ensure your guests will be treated to a spectacular evening. Always Fun Casinos offers high end, casino quality tables with trained dealers who will make sure that your guests enjoy an exciting night out. Always Fun Casinos will help you determine the types and number of tables needed based on the location and size of your event. We will take care of the delivery, set up and tear down of the tables for the event and can provide a Casino Supervisor for the night to help with the facilitation of the games and prizes.
2) Find Local Businesses to Sponsor Your Event
Local business owners are usually willing to help with fundraisers in exchange for advertising. You can sell sponsorships for each of the casino tables, get a "funny money" sponsor, and/or have a company sponsor the entire event. With each sponsor, you will help defray the costs of the casino entertainment. Always Fun Casinos will provide a 8.5" x 11" clear plastic frame that can be placed on the top of each gaming table to display the sponsor's name and slogan or provide digital signage with the sponsor's information. You may want to give the sponsors additional perks, such as including 2 tickets to the event or additional "Funny Money" upon entry.
3) Start Planning Early
For your fundraiser to be successful, you need ample time for planning and preparations. Allow yourself at least six months to begin planning the event. Once you have your venue secured, you and your group can focus on sponsorships, ticket sales and raffle prizes. You need to decide on what will be offered with the admission price (open bar/cash bar, full menu/passed appetizers etc.) and structure your ticket price accordingly. A suggested donation for tickets can range from $25-$100 depending on what is being offered with the admission ticket.
4) Create a Fun Atmosphere
Your guests have bought admittance to your event and are looking to have a great experience for the night. Decorations, music, food and refreshments will set a great atmosphere. The casino tables offer your guests a chance to engage in fun activities while talking with other guests. It is a great environment for those attendees that may not know any of the other guests. Always Fun Casinos offers professional dealers that will teach the games and ensure your guests have a great time.
5) Include Additional Fundraisers in Your Casino Fundraiser
With some additional planning and effort, you can increase your profits by adding a silent or live auction to your fundraiser. While you are soliciting for sponsorships, ask for donations from local businesses. This can include restaurants, hotels and local stores. Guests can "bid" on these auction events throughout the night while playing the casino games. These are a great way to add to your profits with very little effort.
