Identify the purpose of the event

What is the purpose of your charity event? Is it to raise awareness, reach a new demographic, raise donations, or a combination of multiple goals?

Set a fundraising goal

Planning a successful event can get expensive if you don’t have a clear budget in mind. It’s important to know your fundraising goal so you can make wise decisions about where to allocate your resources and get the most bang for your buck. One of the benefits of hosting a roller skating fundraiser is the cost- our Lewisville skating rink can accommodate over 1,000 skaters and our private skating parties cost far less than most Dallas event venues.

Make it memorable

People have so many demands on their time and on their charity spending, so it’s important to make your event stand out from the crowd. A fun activity like roller skating is sure to get people in the door and put them in a good mood- always a smart way to get those checkbooks open and raise some money for your cause!
