Booking an excellent fundraiser venue is one of the most important steps when it comes to organizing a charity event. Believe it or not, it can make or break an event. So it is mandatory that you do all you can to find the best venue.
Of course, this is easier said than done. There are many factors that you need to consider, so it can get pretty overwhelming at times. This is when you are most likely to make a mistake. It happens to the best of us, but learning how to avoid this issue will do wonders for you and your charity events in the long run.
So, if you want to make sure you find the perfect fundraiser venue, then you need to avoid making these three common mistakes:
1. Not checking out the staff
This is one aspect many event planners tend to overlook often, and it is something they often end up regretting. There’s nothing worse for an event planner than to find out just as the event is about to start that some of the staff are missing or that they are not ready.
This is why it is vital to get to know the staff and see how they react to meeting you and to the whole idea of the event.
A quality fundraiser venue is all about the helpful staff who is willing to work with you to make sure every aspect of the event planning process is taken care of.
2. Not inspecting what audio/video capabilities the fundraiser venue has
It is paramount to understand that both audio and video capabilities are essential to the success of a charity event. Without them, you cannot expect to get the attention of the donors when you need to make an important announcement or get a raffle started.
Plus, if you plan to supply your audio and video equipment, you must make sure there is enough room for them and that everything is compatible. Even the smallest incompatibility can cause serious issues, like rendering useless equipment for instance.
So, when looking for a good fundraiser venue, make sure you pay close attention to what the site in question has to offer regarding audio and video capabilities or equipment.
3. Overlooking the entertainment aspect
This is a mistake that can ruin an entire charity event. It is vital to understand that you must show your donors how much you appreciate their efforts through actions, not through words alone. This means you have to keep them entertained for the duration of your event.
Of course, not any form of entertainment will do. You must make sure it is compatible with your audience and that nobody will get offended. That is why we recommend you hire a clean comedian to get the best results.
Ross Bennett would be an excellent choice in this case since he knows how to combine perfectly intellect and clean humor in such a way that it gets the audience thinking and laughing at the same time.
