A Fund Raising Dinner Party Idea

If you want to contribute to a cause you really believe in then why not consider hosting a fund raising dinner party? If you don't want to go all out with a three course meal then you can do something simple - but make it for a good and worthy cause. Have fun raising funds focusing on food at the same time. It's a great way to show you care and a great way for your friends to learn how important a cause may be.

You can invite guests to attend and pay a set fee - like $5, $10, $20 or more - you know how much your friends can afford. Or, you can simply leave a donation bucket at the door and people can contribute any amount they see fit. If you charge a set fee, try to organize receipts for the patrons because it's usually tax deductible. Most people won't care about receipts but it will let them see their money has gone to the charity. This is usually more of an issue if you don't know the people well I guess.

You can send an invitation and on it, consider writing a paragraph or two about the charity you will be helping. The cause you focus upon could be anything from raising money for your local school, an animal charity or to help an illness, the environment or anything you feel passionate about.

You could start a chain of dinner parties inviting someone at your party to host the next fund raising dinner party. Keep track of how much you make as a group. This sort of story is also usually of great interest to a community paper so make sure you keep photos. This in itself generates even more awareness and publicity for your chosen cause.

You can even consider inviting a representative from the charity to say a few words either during the dinner or before. The great thing with this sort of dinner is that everyone feels fantastic that they have contributed to a worthy cause and you'll have done it in such a fun way! This is just something to consider on your search for a dinner party idea.

I love good food and good wine and I love to socialize. Dinner parties give me the opportunity to indulge both my passions. I love dinner parties so much that I host a blog which provides ideas for your next dinner party. They provide such a great way to catch up with the important people in your life.

People love to be invited to dinner parties because they can enjoy an excellent event of great food and company and all it costs usually is a bottle of wine - and maybe a taxi fare home. But it's not about the money - it's just great to be spoiled by your hosts.

I'm a seasoned fundraiser too, so feel free to send me any of your questions. For more dinner party ideas, come visit my blog at http://www.dinnerpartyideas.blogspot.com
