An outdoor film screening is perfect for warm summer nights, and it’s easier to organize than you might think! Plus, it’s a great way to gather your neighbors and raise support for the fight to end breast cancer.
Pick a date and location.
Set a fundraising goal. You can meet your goal by charging a set price for tickets, or just pass around a donation basket when guests are seated.
Create a TeamEdith page. Personalize a TeamEdith fundraising page with your own words, photos and videos. Tell everyone what drives your passion for the fight against breast cancer, and ask for support.
Get the word out. Share your fundraising page through email and social media. You could also post flyers around your neighborhood.
Track down the right equipment. You’ll need an LCD projector, a laptop or DVD player, speakers and a screen (or a white bed sheet). If you don’t have these things on hand, check for loaners at your school or workplace. Rentals are also available.
Share your passion for the cause. Find a way tell your guests about the cause and why you’re supporting Edith Sanford.
Collect donations. Collect cash, checks or have a computer or tablet available for people to make online gifts.
Tally donations. Please use our collection form to record and tally your fundraising. Mail the form and funds to us, and we’ll make sure every dollar goes to work finding the cures.
Say thank you! Everyone likes to hear those magic words, so don’t forget to thank your guests, donors and/or volunteers and tell them about the impact they made.
Test your equipment. Make sure everything is working properly before your guests arrive!
Find a movie everyone can enjoy. You’ll likely have some outdoor distractions and people passing by, so choose a family-friendly flick that’s easy to follow.
Don't forget seating. Provide, or ask guests to bring blankets, lawn chairs or air mattresses.
Offer snacks. It’s not necessary, but you may want to provide food and drinks. Think traditional eats like nachos and popcorn, or find something that corresponds with your movie selection. (Find our favorite healthy snack ideas on Pinterest!)
Remember, there’s no one right way to host an amazing fundraiser for Edith Sanford. Feel free to adapt these ideas to create an event that’s as unique as you are!
