January 27, 2006, Newsletter Issue #1: Party tents: Corporate fundraisers can be successful in a tent

Tip of the Week

Quite often companies will organize fund-raising events to raise money for a worthwhile charity. One such event could be a “Las Vegas” themed party and getting a party tent for the event will not only negate having to rent a hall, but the cool air passing through your tent will refresh the guests and encourage them stay longer.
One particular event went all the way using gambling tables with wrestling as a bonus activity.
It is illegal in most states to gamble but the group got around that by selling guests tokens valued from $1 and up. Guests could cash in their winnings for prizes like CD players, a trip to a day spa, etc. The company was able to get area businesses to donate the prizes, helping the group hold on to the funds they raised. Donated prizes that went unclaimed at the end of the day were then auctioned off.
That evening a band was set up in a canopy stage and the guest that stayed enjoyed dancing, visiting along with their favorite beverage.
