  • Try to get as much as you can through a form of donation. in turn you offer companies that donate food, supplies, venue etc a mention in the programs that you hand out. . Anyone who donates above average maybe give special mention to at some point during the event. Your event will be VERY different depending on whether you make it all ages or adults only. There are a lot of pros and cons to consider. the type of food and venue you look for , the theme and decor will all depend on your audience. The type of investors you'll be seeking out will likely depend on your audience too. It's a lot harder to plan an event involving children imo.

  • I think it'd be easier for just adults as well. But I guess I just assumed that since it is for a childrens hospital, children should be allowed to come? Know what I mean.. ? :S I don't know...

  • One thing is to have everyone pay for tickets in advance then towards then people can pay at the door.I would do a buffet they are cheap because you won't need a wait staff as much also do a family minded menu like some things kids and adults would like.Make so actives to keep kids happy. Good luck.
