There’s nothing better than an end-of-summer party! Last summer, our friend Andrew (the brother of our Development Director, Rachel) invited friends to soak up some sun, eat a few bites, and learn more about how Touch A Life is helping exploited children around the world.
If you’d like to throw a fun fundraising party to wrap up your summer, here are some tips from Andrew:
- Find a great backyard
Andrew’s friends Chris and Danielle offered up their house and yard for the perfect location. About 25 people made their way to this event, so find a space that fits your crowd.
- Gather some food (and wine!)
A steady flow of munchies – kebabs, chips and dips, finger foods, small bites, desserts, as well as a refreshment center were perfect for a late afternoon/evening get together.
- Play hard
Backyard games kept everyone having fun! Andrew set up bags (or cornhole, if you’re from Texas!), bocce ball, and ladderball.
- Share the story
A small table with information about Touch A Life, as well as a champagne toast given by Rachel let all the party-goers know that every donation and volunteer makes a huge difference in the fight to end slavery.
