When we last discussed a fundraising event on the EK Blog, I filled you in on some fabulous fundraising options. By now, you understand that the return on investment or “ROI” of your expertly executed event (we can help you with that, trust me) transcends beyond donations. The way that a fantastic and functional fundraiser reflects on your organization is free advertising and all of that positive attention is going to generate generosities for years to come.
Take a look at The NY Islanders’ Casino Fundraiser: this event was the definition of a casual fun environment that got supporters

excited about the cause. Providing high quality
entertainment options such as a photo booth treats your supporters like celebrities. 
That being said, there is no easier way to scare off a potential supporter than by accosting them with paper application or inaccessible information. Part of marketing a successful fundraising campaign into 2016 is by providing online and mobile access to your event. Facebook is one way to provide registrants with free online registration. Pay-Pal can be a great way to collect registration fees before the event. Going into the future, the organizations that are able to thrive are the ones that are able to keep up with our tech-savvy culture. Supporters love to see visual reinforcements on web of their donations through widgets and thermometers that keep track of the organization’s goals.

Event Kings knows how to execute fundraisers to perfection and can assist your organization in designing the kind of fundraiser that makes dollars and sense. A casino atmosphere is a creative way to keep your cause in the minds of your supporters as they enjoy your fabulous event. While supporters enjoys the tables they are

reminded of the real reason for the event each time they glance at the fun money printed with your moniker- to complete the authentic experience.

The sooner you realize that Fundraising Events are the future of your organization the sooner you too can reap the benefits of an event that generates pride, publicity and donations.

Magic, Mystery…and Murder? On Creating a spooky but sophisticated soiree.

9:32 PM

October is a Month of Mischevious Themes

Here at Event Kings a Halloween themed event is not a concept reserved for a six year old. Truth be told, human beings seems to have a fascination with the macabre. The darker side of life has always been an inspiration in entertainment. Magicians like Harry Houdini use illusion to make us question what we see before our own eyes. Great directors like Alfred Hitchcock use mystery to illicit thrills from their patrons.  The different between these innovators of intrigue and your standard B-Movie gore, is the masterful execution of suspense in a glamorous and ghoulish setting.

So, pray tell what is the secret to sophistication and spook? Halloween décor uses the power of suggestion and element of surprise to recreate the excitement we experience as we witness Hollywood Horror. It could be an event that just happens to occur during October, such as a Sweet Sixteen or Halloween could be the reason of the evening. The dark and magical is a versatile yet unconventional theme that makes your event more memorable.

Walk your guests though a glittering forest or enchant them with a magic mirror. Choose candlelit Gothic details for a vintage vibe that is nothing less than classically creepy. Once you have determined your devious decorations it’s time to “exorcise” exquisite entertainment. Not for the faint-of-heart, a Murder Mystery event is your ticket to an intriguing evening. Excite, and surprise your guests by entertaining them with a story that they are a part of.  Another way to add additional thrills and chills is by enlisting a magician. Children and adults will delight in the illusions created by a man skilled in “slight-of-hand.”
