Sometimes, a charity or institution will need little more extra dollars for their ballooning expenses.

While there are a handful of ways of raising money to cover the budget, a casino fundraiser ranks high as one of the most effective. Maybe it’s the James Bond movies, but the gram and excitement of casino night fundraisers can attract a sizable crowd.

So, how do you go about planning a successful casino night fundraiser?

Secure Donations

The main objective of the casino night is to raise funds, but that doesn’t mean you should go as minimalist as possible with folding chairs and DIYs.

Make the casino night fundraiser worth attending for everyone. Make it worth their time and spend. But how do you handle the financing issue?

Donations and sponsorships are no-brainers.

Donations from corporations and local businesses can transform the fundraiser into a great event where everyone has a great time. Approach businesses that might be interested in trading donations or sponsorships for exposure – a good deal where everyone wins.

Offer to put the sponsors’ logos on the tables and other places around the event.

Handling Chips and Prizes

Since you cannot legally exchange chips for money, it’s up to you to determine the prizes. You can give participants with the most chips some raffle tickets where they can win various prizes.

Raise the stakes with great prizes so that you can sell more chips.

Hire Professionals

Organizing a successful casino fundraiser may not be as simple as it may seem. There are many moving parts that only a professional can handle.

A casino rental company will make it less hassle by providing professional dealers, gaming tables, and decorations.

A successful casino night will also depend on the crowd you pull, and your choice of venue is an excellent determinant of this. Choose wisely.
