Looking for a way to take your next fundraising event to a new level? Check out these great theme ideas. The tri-state area is home to countless fundraisers every weekend, so it’s worth researching ways to reach (and surpass) the levels of event production NYC is known for.
Under the Big Top
Make your fundraiser the spectacle of the season with a circus theme. Go big with performers like aerial artists and jugglers, or keep it intimate with design and imagery that hearken back to the big top. For an extra level of interaction, consider incorporating carnival games where guests can win prizes.
This theme is especially charming in an indoor-outdoor venue. Greenery and plants, string lights, and themed food and beverage can transform an otherwise familiar space into something that feels fresh and new. Spring into action with a garden party that guests will remember for a long time.
One of the most interactive theme ideas is that of a casino celebration. Let guests know that instead of having to travel to Vegas, they can let Vegas come to them. This theme is especially fantastic because it makes it easy to build in ways to channel donations with options like poker games, auctions, and even the possibility of slot machines. People love spending money on games of chance in casinos. Let them spend it on your fundraiser instead.
All That Jazz
If your fundraiser is at all connected to an arts program, a jazz theme is a great option to consider. Your guests will dance the night away in an atmosphere of live music, glitz, and glamour. Similarly, a jazz-themed event can also double as a 1920s theme, one of the most popular fundraiser setups. Distance yourself from the pack a bit by pulling the elements of a Roaring Twenties party without appearing as just another of the same. With any of these options, your next fundraiser is sure to succeed and stand out.
