Whether it’s a casual happy hour or a large soiree, you won’t have trouble gathering friends and acquaintances to raise a glass of vino in support of the cause. Cheers!
Pick a date and location. Anywhere from your home to a local restaurant, bar or winery will do!
Set a fundraising goal. You can meet your goal by charging a price-per-glass or an all-inclusive price at the door. If it’s a smaller event, simply ask for free-will donations.
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.
Get the word out. Share your TeamEdith page through social media and email. You’ll be surprised how willing people are to donate and/or attend your event when they see that their friends are passionate about something.
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. Social media is a great tool to publicly show gratitude while also generating interest in Edith Sanford’s approach to breast cancer.
Negotiate. Talk to a wine merchant or distributor about your event, and see if they’ll provide some nice wine options for less than the retail price.
Have food. Offer a small sampling of cheese and crackers or other small hors d’oeuvres.
Recruit an expert. Have a wine expert at the event who can talk about tasting and appreciating the wine.
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!
