Planning Tips

Personally delivering flyers and chatting about the event is by far the best way to get people to come to your Tropical Paradise Shave Ice Fundraiser. Friends, family and Volunteers are the perfect resource for this type of event. Encourage them to hand the flyers out at work, meetings, etc. Send out press releases and public service announcements to local newspapers, radio stations and television stations.

Set realistic expectations. Consider the dollar amount of funds you want to receive from the fundraiser. For example, if you want to earn $160, your organization needs to bring in $800 in sales. If the average guest spends $3, approximately 267 people will need to participate in the fundraiser to reach your goal.

Promote, Promote, Promote. Ultimately, the enthusiasm of the organization’s members to promote the event is the biggest factor in success.

Distributing flyers to your supporters 2–3 weeks in advance is optimal. You will receive electronic versions of the Tropical Paradise Shave Iced Fundraiser flyer and event vouchers two weeks in advance of your scheduled event so you have enough time to print and/or email. Display the flyers provided at your organization’s meeting location and other community locations (with permission).

Remember email is a cost effective way to promote your event. Be sure you instruct the recipient to print the event voucher to bring with them the day of the event.

Please use the verbiage from the flyer in any communications about the fundraiser. It should be clear that the event does not discount meals; it simply raises funds for your group.

Utilize any print materials you already have. Stuff the flyers in the newsletters or magazines already set to go out. Take advantage of any opportunity to announce your Tropical Paradise Shave Ice Fundraiser to groups willing to support your cause (i.e. group sporting events, PTA meetings, etc.).
