How Star Wars: Rogue One can help your fundraiser

08 November, 2016


The force is strong with movie fundraisers! 

There is no doubt that Star Wars-themed events tend to draw a great crowd, and with the release of the newest version there has been a regeneration of interest in the internationally acclaimed franchise. In fact, people all over the world have jumped on board of the phenomena the movie has created, and are using the brand to their advantage. With so much fanfare flowing from the movie, we'd like to give you some pointers on how you can incorporate the theme into your next movie fundraiser.

What’s better than a movie fundraiser? One with a fun theme of course! But with so many fundraisers being held in the community each year you need to stand out from the crowd.

The easiest way to stand out is by introducing a costume theme where guests can get dressed up in their favourite costumes. You can raise additional funds by offering food, drinks and novelties (such as light sabers) that guests can purchase at your event. TryBooking also allows guests to pre-purchase food and drinks for your event, which helps you to be more prepared in advance. 

Another draw card for people attending your event is that you can award prizes for the best costumes which will generate additional interest for people to attend your event. This is when you can also take the opportunity to hire a photographer and people can pay a small fee to receive professional photos of themselves from the night. 

It's also important to consider corporate sponsorships, companies who can donate your prizes etc. To get the best sponsors for your event, they should have affinity with your cause and have a similar target market to who your guests will be, but you should also consider sponsorship options very carefully before approaching them so that they can clearly choose an option that suits them best.

Holding a Star Wars themed fundraiser is a fun, fresh way to dress up your fundraiser and here at TryBooking we can assist you with all of your online ticketing needs to work with you behind the scenes. Already we have seen plenty of Star Wars movie fundraisers on TryBooking, and we anticipate that this will be a very popular theme over the next couple of months.
