Plan Your Next Fundraiser Around the Venue of Your Dreams

June 27th, 2018

When planning a fundraising event for your charity, selecting the right venue is an important first step. With the venue contract locked in place, you and your event planner can start planning all of the details that make your fundraiser a truly unique experience for your guests. So how do you pick the right venue? We have a checklist for that. Read on! And if you’re hosting your fundraiser in Philadelphia, we hope you will consider the Event Center at SugarHouse Casino as your event venue.

 Flexible SpaceBefore you start looking at venues, you’ll want to get an idea of how many guests will be in attendance at your fundraiser. To come up with a ballpark attendance number, review your current invite list as well as past event attendance. With this number in mind, you can start looking at venues based on the estimated size of your party. Make sure your venue has a plan for expansion, should you have more guests attend than you originally anticipated.

Are you hosting a large gala? The Event Center is 30,000 square feet and features over 10,000 square feet of configurable banquet space. By hosting your fundraiser here, you can ensure there will be more than enough room for all of your guests.

 

Top-Notch Food

Think about the last event you attended. We bet you can’t remember the color of the table linens, but you do remember the food! Exquisite catering is one of the ways you can thank donors and supporters at your fundraising event.

At the Event Center at SugarHouse Casino, you can spoil your guests with a fresh, mouthwatering meal catered by Hugo’s Frog Bar & Chophouse—voted best steakhouse in Philadelphia in 2017.

 

Free Valet and Self-Parking

Are you hosting your fundraiser in Philadelphia or another major city? A smooth arrival for your guests is your one and only chance at a positive first impression. Consider choosing a venue that includes valet parking with ample spaces onsite.

Do any of the venues you’re considering for your fundraiser have outdoor space? A great view keeps event day optimistic and offers guests a natural vantage point for posting on Instagram.
