We had a great turnout for our November luncheon at Scera Center for the Arts. Our presenter was Lisa Swearingen, owner of Be My Guest Wedding and Event Planning with tips on keeping costs down for fundraisers and office parties. A little creative thinking can go a long way to help your organization pull off an event without busting your budget.Location – keep costs down by staying at the office or using the CEO’s house (assuming it’s roomy and already decorated) Food – recruit talented employees to make their specialty dishes, go potluck, or even have the upper management do the cooking Entertainment – don’t overlook the talent of your own employees Activities – show the lighter side of your CEO with some silly games or try a white elephant gift exchange
Save the Date for the December 8 11:30AM-1:30PM Holiday Luncheon and Silent Auction Scholarship Fundraiser at the Garden Room at Thanksgiving Point. We’re seeking a few more table sponsors and silent auction donors – if you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
