How to plan a fund raising event

If you are planning a charity event, there are some overlooked and underused ways to make money for your non-profit. At Soho Studios, we are proud to host many such premier fund raising events in Miami and offer these event planning suggestions.

Sell Sponsorships.

Different level of sponsorships can mean differing levels of visibility for your sponsors. Event signage, website and Facebook visibility, program ads, and even table tent visibility are event production assets that you have that you can offer sponsors. Get creative.

VIP Experiences.

Larger donors will be willing to pay extra to attend your event if you can provide an experience not available to regular ticket holders. VIP experiences may include valet parking, better seating, opportunities for meet and greets, upgraded food and beverage options and perhaps an exclusive post event party.

Market Guest Gift Bags.

Who doesn't love a little swag? Talk to businesses who want the visibility and association that your event can provide and offer to give attendees coupons or samples of their products for a donation. Your guests get gifts, and you make some extra money for your charity. You also involve more organizations with your event.

Our experienced team at Soho Studios can not only help you stage an event that will be well remembered, we are equipped to assist you with a variety of ideas to help create financially successful non-profit events.

Mobile Bars

If you are event planning for an occasion that will require mobile bars, there are some pretty amazing choices available. You may have more options than you realize, and you will want to consider several factors when deciding on a vendor.

A mobile bar is more than a place to dispense drinks. It is a gathering point, a centerpiece of socialization. It can impress with its size, color, and lighting. The right staff can add greatly to the enjoyment of your event.

Here are some things to consider.

- Will the mobile bar enhance your event? Does it offer anything special other than a counter and cooler?

- Does it light up or accommodate custom colors or logos? Is there a “wow” factor that you are looking for and does the    mobile bar company provide it?

- What type of glassware is appropriate for your event and does your mobile bar vendor provide it?

- Is the staff experienced with your type of event?

- Does the staff dress appropriately for your type of event?

- Do they offer flair bartenders to add a little extra to your event?

Is the staff age appropriate for your event?

Remember, attendees at your event will not care that you are using a vendor for your event. They will see the mobile bar as an extension of the event and the mobile bar staff as your staff. You’ll want to get great recommendations and do your due diligence.

Bartending in Miami can be taken to new levels with exciting flair bartenders that can include everything from fire breathing to magic. Don’t be afraid to step out of the box!
