If you have a fundraising event coming up, then you want to get the most out of it. And entertainment plays a critical part in that. Even so, it is sometimes an overlooked element of planning charity events.
Keep reading to discover 3 proven ways in which entertainment will contribute to the success of your next event.
1. Generate More Buzz for Your Event
One of the benefits of booking an amazing entertainer for your event is that it will get more people to talk about it on social media. Plus, it is also likely to help you get more press to cover your event, and thus:
- increase the visibility of your fundraiser;
- spread more awareness about your cause;
- reach more people who may not have heard about your charity before.
Whether we talk about online media outlets or local newspapers, journalists will be more likely to be interested in your event if it stands out.
And that’s precisely what entertainment helps you achieve.
To up your chances of journalists picking up the news, be sure to include a mention of the entertainer you have booked along with relevant details (such as the entertainer’s picture and previous achievements) in your flyers, emails, ads, and other marketing materials you’ve created to promote the event.
2. Put Donors in a Great Mood
How your guest feels about attending your charity events and what they take away from them will directly impact how much they are willing to contribute to support your cause.
Therefore, it’s essential to put your audience in a charitable mood. And that means you should ensure your guests are relaxed and happy.
One of the easiest ways to accomplish that is by featuring live entertainment.
A comedy act, in particular, will do wonders in terms of helping lower stress and ease tension. That’s because laughter causes the body to secrete serotonin, the happiness hormone.
Furthermore, laughing is a social activity.
Therefore, booking an act to amuse your audience will help them feel closer to each other. This is especially important if you have a mixed audience of people who don’t know each other, which can often make guests feel awkward and isolated.
3. Create Excitement
Attention is the world’s most valuable commodity. As a non-profit organization, you’re competing for the attention of potential donors.
And when it comes to charity events, you need to make your fundraiser stand out from the rest and give people as many reasons as possible to make them want to attend your event.
In other words, show them why your event deserves their attention.
Highlighting your cause and your organization’s impact will draw people in. Still, entertainment is the spice that can turn a regular fundraiser into a must-attend special event.
Moreover, giving guests a chance to watch a professional entertainer perform live makes them more likely to spread the word about your fundraiser on their social media channels and mention your organization during conversations with friends, family members, and co-workers.
This translates into a higher attendance rate at your event and increases awareness about your cause.
