Host it Your Way!
If you and your girls love any excuse for a good catch up, banter and laughs, then hosting a Girls Night In might be just for you! And what’s more rewarding than knowing that your girls get together is making a difference to the lives of all women across South Australia?
How do I host a Girls Night In?
It can be as small or big as you like; it can be a business function, dinner party, karaoke session, mystery dinner party, a getaway together, spa day, cooking class, a parent’s group catch up or an intimate get together with your nearest and dearest. Other things to think about include organising your favourite playlist, food and snacks to enjoy, and of course, your guest list!
How to turn your Girls Night In into a successful fundraiser for women’s cancers
Register to set up your online fundraising page
Make it easy for donors, both before, during and at your event by setting up your online fundraising page. It’s an easy way to ask for donations. Even if people can’t attend, they can still make a donation to support you and your cause.
Set a fundraising goal
Think about a realistic goal and share it with your friends. Knowing how much you’re hoping to raise will give your friends a sense of how much they should donate to help you.
Kick-start your fundraising
Show you’re committed by making a contribution to your own fundraising page to get the ball rolling. Your guests will soon follow.
Spread the word
Share your fundraising page via Instagram, Facebook, email, and ask your guests to do the same. Unfortunately, we all know someone affected by cancer, so you’d be amazed how supportive even strangers can be.
Remind people to donate
Don’t forget to keep guests up-to-date with details of your event and your progress as you near your goal. Remind them to donate online anytime. Make sure you have donation boxes on the night – even spare change helps.
Approach your employer
Ask your employer to match the amount you raise at your event to double your impact.
Approach local businesses and boost your fundraising
Identify local businesses that could assist in catering, supplying raffle prizes, game prizes or items for auction. Ask your hairdresser, beautician or even piliates group – they'd love to support your cause too! Download our handy guide for how to get the support of local businesses.
