Getting people to contribute their hard earned money for a good cause is a difficult chore especially in these harsh economic times. There are many excellent organizations and causes that are all deserving and are competing for the limited number of charity dollars to go around. Anyone who has ever been charged with the task of fund raising can tell you this from first hand experience. In order to be effective and have the best chance of reaching your goal, you need to be able attract donors with a first-class event that is designed specifically for them to have FUN, and open up their hearts and wallets.
Casino Party Fundraising is the perfect solution for most any organization or cause. Just picture your prospective donors entering to the sights of Slot Machines, BackJack, Roulette, Craps, and a number of other casino games, all being serviced by professional dealers in vests and bow ties. It is just like bringing Las Vegas to your front door! Your guests will be treated like Kings and Queens as they experience all of the excitement that casino gambling has to offer, all in the name of donating money to your cause.
It this legal? You bet it is, because the casino chips have no cash value. Your guests will be playing strictly for the thrill of the experience, but no money is paid out to players at the end of the event. As long as you work within those guidelines then the games and machines are as harmless as a game of Monopoly. However, you can have prizes that are given away at the end of the event and that can be based on the amount they have won in the casino, so now they are actually playing for a purpose and the level of excitement goes up! Donors will be buying more chip throughout the event so that they can ‘stay in the game’.
Now that you are convinced that a casino party is the way to go, the next question is how to choose a company that will provide me with the best value? Here are a few guidelines that will help you through the process:
- Cost is one of your biggest concerns. The cost will be based on the number of guests you will be expecting and consequently the number of machines and tables needed to accommodate them. The date, time, location, and duration of the event will help to zero in on the exact amount it will cost.
- The quality of the equipment and professional appearance and attitude of the dealers is just as important as the cost. It would be embarrassing to have your guests sit a tables with torn felt tops or dealers that don’t look or act professionally. The best way to narrow down any prospective casino rental companies is to request references before making any commitments.
- What else can they bring to the table that will add value to your fund raising event? A good quality casino rental company will have an event coordinator that is included at no extra charge that has had experience with what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to the actual execution of the event. If this is your first time trying a casino theme for your fund raiser, then the services of this event coordinator can and will be invaluable and integral in your overall success.
