Since Hope in Motion is a year-round fundraising initiative for the Bennett Cancer Center, our supporters often lead their own events, either near the time of the Walk, Run, or Ride or at other times throughout the year. We welcome either! Mini Events are great ways to generate funds for BCC patient services while having fun doing something you’re interested in—from golf to shopping events to happy hours and more.
Mini events are also great for teambuilding and fundraising. If you’re interested in hosting an event but don’t know how to get started, here’s what we recommend: gather your friends, family, and co-workers to participate in a hobby or activity you already love.
Here are a few ideas:
- Host a golf tournament
- Host a happy hour at a local bar (maybe even have a 50/50 raffle)
- Host a Bake Sale, Tag Sale, or Lemonade Stand
- Host a sporting event (tennis, hockey, bowling, etc.)
- Host a dinner party at your home (and charge "admission")
- Host an ice cream social
You’ll be surprised by how easy it is and by how many local organizations are willing to support your efforts. Sometimes it’s as simple as asking!
Once you’ve decided on your event, be sure to send invites and publicize as appropriate. To help you, we’ve created the following flyer for you to customize so you can get the word out. Click here. Plus, be sure to tell us about it! We’ll publicize your event on our website and facebook page.
