Do you belong to a church group, school, business or private organization that is in need of CASH? Then consider letting Skatetown of Vidor, Texas, be your go-to facility for FUNdraising!
No matter what charity or non-profit organization you are a part of, fundraising no doubt plays a key role in your yearly goals. While reach to those online and in person can be limited, choosing a FUN facility that draws a large crowd and offers fun activities (like those at Skatetown), gives you have better chances at a sizable audience of people to participate in your fundraising event.
Skatetown Puts the “FUN” in Fundraising!
Need some fun ideas for your next fundraiser? Check out some of the ones below! While the following ideas would still need to be approved by the facility manager of any place you book, they can be used in multiple settings:
- Raffles – Everyone likes a good raffle! The excitement of reading your raffle ticket when the numbers are called has long been a fun way to earn cash for charity and group organizations. The key with any raffle is to earn more than you spend; so reach out to local business to donate prizes for your next raffle so you aren’t spending too much on the prizes.
- Jar Counting – A super easy way to raise funds is to have items (jellybeans, beads, etc.) in a clear jar and ask people to submit a guess. Have them ‘pay to play’ and you can even get more donations by charging for a hint (just be sure to only say higher or lower with you hint!) Whoever guesses the right amount or is closest without going over, wins a prize! Kids and adults alike tend to love this old school fundraising game.
- ‘Chuck-a-Duck’ – For this event you’ll need to buy a tarp, paint, rubber ducks and a sharpie. Paint a target on the tarp (you can also use large spool bulletin board paper); then using the sharpie, number the bottom of the ducks 1-20 (or however many you have). Guests to your fundraiser then buy the ducks from your group. At a designated time, the target is rolled out in the middle of the floor. A countdown will commence and then your guests will literally ‘chuck’ (throw) the ducks onto the target. The person’s duck closest to the center wins a prize. (To alleviate ties, be sure to have back up prizes like candy, for those who hit the target after the first winner; the host/hostess of the fundraiser may want to mention that the first to hit the target gets the prize to prevent arguments about who should get the prize. Participant numbers can even be randomly mixed and called, to make it random as to who goes first.)
