Top 5 Fun Ways Your Organization Can Raise Money!

As a member of a charitable or other non-profit organization, you know that raising money is a vital and ongoing practice. Without donations coming in, your organization can’t keep doing its valuable work. At GO FESTIVE! we appreciate the good deeds non-profits do, and we want to make sure you can continue to succeed. Below is our Top 5 list of ideas on how to raise money for your organization while having a great time and reaching out to your community!

Idea #1: Have a Movie Night! Who doesn’t love the idea of a drive-in movie? Our Fun Flicks movie packages are the perfect way to bring people together for a night of cinema under the stars. We like to say that it’s all the fun of the drive-in, without the cars! Your organization can sell tickets and concessions to raise money for your cause.

Idea #2: Host a Silent Auction! Silent auctions are a great way to raise money for your organization without incurring overhead costs. Ask local businesses to donate goods or services or provide them at cost and then invite members of your community for a night of entertainment and bidding! GO FESTIVE! offers great packages for auctions, and we’ll even donate a photobooth for the evening of your event if you auction off all five of our services!

Idea #3: Arrange a Laser Tag Tournament! GO FESTIVE’S Battle Blast Laser Tag isn’t just for parties – it’s also great for raising money! Sign up teams of up to six players and GO FESTIVE! will run a day-long tournament. The winning team gets a 2-hour Battle Blast Party! Your organization pays $40 per team to GO FESTIVE!, but can charge whatever you wish for teams to sign up – giving you the opportunity to raise money from each and every team. We only require a minimum of 12 teams to have a tournament, so get your friends and family together and let’s play!

Idea #4: Hold a Video Game Tournament! Games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Wii Sports are fun for everyone – players and audience alike. GO FESTIVE!’s jumbo inflatable movie screens make the perfect canvas on which to duke it out for a good cause! Simply book a GO FESTIVE! Fun + Games party and charge admission for tournament play. GO FESTIVE! will provide the screen, sound and projector equipment, all you need to supply is the gaming system and game disk!

Idea #5: Throw a community carnival! Your friends and neighbors will be more than willing to support your cause when there’s so much fun involved! Invite local businesses, artists, and vendors to purchase table space and display their wares. Have fun activities for kids and adults alike – dance competitions, arts and crafts, rides and games. GO FESTIVE! offers many fun party activities like photobooths and flipbooks that will enhance your carnival and wow the crowd. Don’t forget about our Fun Flicks Outdoor Movies and Battle Blast Laser Tag – great additions to any community carnival!

About GO FESTIVE!

GO FESTIVE! is based locally in Philadelphia and got its start in 2007 as Festive Fotobooths. Inspired by the fun of the photobooth at Northbowl in Philadelphia, company owner Natalie Morin Hirsch created a traveling version and began bringing it to events as a way to make some money while completing law school. Three years later, the company now has 7 Fotobooths and offers other great services like Flipbooks, Fun Flicks Outdoor Movies, Battle Blast Laser Tag, and Festive Fun + Games. To reflect our diversification, the company name was officially changed to GO FESTIVE! in mid-2009.
Since its inception, GO FESTIVE! has provided entertainment and enjoyment at all types of events – from weddings to Sweet 16s to charity galas and community fundraising events.

Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation's Battle Blast Fund Raiser!

GO FESTIVE! recently worked with a local sorority organization to benefit diabetes awareness, and had a BLAST! The event was organized by the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority chapter at St. Joseph’s University, and took place on St. Joseph’s campus on a beautiful spring afternoon. GO FESTIVE! team members facilitated a Battle Blast Laser Tag Tournament for twenty teams of college students who got right into the swing of things and participated in tiered competition all day for the Grand Prize: A two hour Battle Blast Laser Tag party of their own!

Checks out the great photos below, courtesy of event organizer LoriAnn Rizzo.

Our thanks to the great folks at St. Joseph’s and in Alpha Gamma Delta for putting the event together. We look forward to working with them again, and we look forward to seeing YOU having a blast on the battlefield next!

BATTLE BLAST! Mobile Laser Tag Launch Party

Hey Festive Friends! We hope you all got a chance to stop by our launch party last Friday – it was a real treat! As you may have heard, we are now offering mobile laser tag parties! We bring the inflatable obstacles and the guns, and you provide teams of people ready to have fun! Our laser tag parties can take place indoors – in a gym, cafeteria, even in an office, amongst the cubicles! Of course we can also bring the party outdoors (day OR night!) to play on an open field, in your backyard, or around a community park!

To introduce this great new service to the public, we had a launch party on March 5 at our building, 2424 Studios which has a space just perfect for large gatherings and good times – the Skybox! We set up our inflatable laser tag obstacles and ran laser tag games all evening long. To keep our guests entertained while waiting their turn, we also had a photobooth and a JUMBO 21′ tall inflatable screen where guests played Wii Fit and Guitar Hero!

A laser tag game in progress!

One of the best things about GO FESTIVE! is our team – they’re all great people who love to have a good time. And they have great friends and family members who  came to pitch in for setting up the party. Of course, we wanted them to enjoy as well! From our owner Natalie’s husband Matt to the friends and family of our team members, people turned out to enjoy and make the party a success! Check out the pictures below from this great night of fun!

Of course, a GO FESTIVE! party wouldn’t be a party without the photobooth that started it all! Christine and Todd finally got to jump in the booth together for the first time…
