Wall Foundation holds annual benefit
March 31, 2012 by Sarah
The Wall Foundation for Excellence in Education held their annual fundraiser at Barlow’s Flower Farm on the 23rd March. The event ran from 6pm to 9pm and featured a raffle, food and an auction. The theme of the party was “Tropical Escape”. Due to this, guests were encouraged to wear beach attire to the event.
The foundation holds events such as this one to raise funds for buying educational material for the Wall Township school district. Previously, the foundation has purchased a greenhouse and a television station for the local high school.
Events like this one need high attendance rates. Without a good number of guests, the foundation would not have been able to reach its fundraising goals. There are a number of ways that organizers can improve attendance at charity events in the future. One of the easiest methods is to use flyer printing. These flyers can be given to children to take home to their parents. Parents who are interested in charity work or donating money could then contact the school for more information about the event.
This method of marketing is generally more effective for small events as advertising on traditional mediums would be too expensive. Ideally, non-profit organizations would advertise their event one or two weeks before it takes place. This give donors a good amount of time to buy their tickets. Those who advertise too early may find that donors forget that the event is taking place.
