Fundraising events can take many forms. Some fun events ideas could include:
–Organize a Poker Game – Charge each person a set price to play. The winner wins 50% of the pot and the other 50% goes to VOBOC.
–Have a Garage Sale – Pick a nice weekend afternoon, clean out your garage/basement and donate the proceeds to VOBOC.
–Host a Comedy Night – Many comedy clubs in Montreal will offer discounted tickets to fundraisers, so get all of your friends out for a laugh and help VOBOC at the same time.
–Make a fancy Dinner Party in your home – Invite your friends over for dinner, charge them $20-$50 and ask them to bring their own wine. Give your friends a chance to get dressed up and support VOBOC!
–Have an Outdoor BBQ – Buy hot dogs and buns in bulk, use either your home BBQ or a public one in a park (such as Angrignon park), invite your friends and charge them for the goodies with the funds going to help VOBOC.
–Organize a Wine and Cheese – Have your friends come over with their favorite bottle of wine and/or their favorite cheese. Charge them $20 to try all of the wines and the cheeses together with the proceeds going to VOBOC.
–Have a Bar Night at your Local Pub – Arrange a pub night with your friends and ask your local bar to donate 50% of the proceeds from your group that night to VOBOC.
–Participate in a Walk/Run Event – There are many walk/run events in Montreal throughout the summer. Sign up for one and have your friends & family pledge you to participate for the benefit of VOBOC.
–Host a Bowling Party – Contact your local bowling alley, invite all of your friends and organize a charity bowling event for the benefit of VOBOC.
–Organize a Car Wash – Gather some friends, make some signs, get a hose and bucket, and wash some cars! Its a great way to get your kids involved in helping VOBOC too!
–Make a Raffle – Either hold a 50/50 raffle, get a raffle prize donated (hockey tickets are always a great one if you know anyone willing to donate a pair), or create your own raffle prize basket to sell a ticket for VOBOC.
