Elegant fundraising galas are amongst the most memorable fundraising options. However, a significant amount of planning is required in order to host a successful gala. Here are five helpful tips for throwing the best fundraising gala in town!
Like any large event, planning ahead is important to ensure the success of your fundraising gala. Be sure to book venues, bands, and rentals as far in advance as possible to avoid your top choices becoming unavailable.
Get the Word Out
In order to increase your RSVP list, take advantage of social media and publication ads to spread the word about your event. Be sure that dates, times, ticket prices, and preferred attire are included so attendees can make plans.
Set the Scene
If your gala is outdoors, renting a tent or canopy can create a comfortable location for a fundraiser. For an indoor venue, consider renting a dance floor so guests can have the option to dance and listen to music.
Add a Touch of Elegance
Galas require a higher level of elegant decorating than many other fundraisers. Including a variety of attractive lighting options, such as candles, rice lights, or clear Italian lights can add inexpensive beauty to any evening gala. Floral arrangements, palm trees and/or other foliage can also create a beautiful ambiance.
Set Your Tables
Gala tables include a wide spread of elegant tableware. Be sure to coordinate glassware, china, and tablecloth. Add table skirts to your buffet and bar to add a beautiful overall effect. Colored linens can also be used to match your fundraiser’s theme.
