Attendees of the Musical Fundraising Event
Can you believe it? Fundraising within a fundraising event?
The staff of Tewa organized few fun games and unique ideas to raise funds during their bi-annual fundraising musical event. Tewa organized a Musical Fundraising Event in collaboration with Ek Ek Paila featuring the local band "The Blue Fret", Navneet Aditya Waiba, Vivek Lama and Word Warriors. With the theme, "Music for Health" this fundraising event was organized to enhance the health condition in Nepal through grants and services.
The event was successfully organized in presence of more than 500 people from a diverse background who came to enjoy this tradition with a modern blend of music. Along with music, people also enjoyed food and games. The staff of Tewa came up with the idea to raise funds and have some fun during the event itself. So before the main event started, the guests were involved in different activities. Few of the main attractions of the event were a photo exhibition, photo booth, guess the chocolates and Fish Cup game. All the prizes for the games were sponsored.
Guess the chocolate game was introduced to guests in the entry point where interested can guess the chocolate in the bottle by paying NRs 5/- (USD 0.05). The second game is fish cup where the cups were filled with water and participant had to throw tennis balls in the cup. Out of 15 cups, those who score more than 8 wins exciting gift hampers. To participate in the game, one had to pay NRs 25/- (USD 0.25). The third one is a photo booth. Those interested could pay NRs 50/- (USD 0.50) to click a picture in front of Tewa's checkerboard by using different props. The pictures would be sent to the guests via email. By using simple yet exciting ideas, a small amount of fund was raised through these games.
We successfully raised more than USD 5,000/- from the musical event. Without our volunteers, grantee partners, staff, Board and General Members, and supporters, this event wouldn't have been successful. Their constant support and contribution had always helped us make our events successful and we must say more than 6000 local individual donors to Tewa till date are the pioneers of our success.
