Of vital importance to the successful event is finding a suitable location for the scheduled festivities, an effort which also benefits from the use of electronic contacts. A contact list through email may be able to contribute invaluable suggestions as to a suitable venue. Perhaps it is possible to even have event space donated for the benefit or auction, saving the organization valuable funds for the charity. Possible locations for large events include wineries, schools, churches, restaurants, and even fraternal halls or auditoriums. A strong email contact list such as the resources of Orphaned to Hatred, can quickly put out the word to hundreds of contacts, and narrow down the essential search for event location. Once this decision is made and booked, then maps of the physical plant can be made, potential difficulties identified and eliminated, and a needs list of supplies can be made.
Orphaned to Hatred also handles any special permits or licenses which may be required for the event, and helps assure that methods of payment are established for accepting donations. Decisions about ticket sales, how many, prices, and advertising for ticket sales are also part of the details which Orphaned to Hatred handles for the event. Pre-event sales can be successfully promoted with 25% discounts. Prices for adults and children should be established, and ticket sales may need to be coordinated with capacity of the venue. Tickets per plate for dinner events should be coordinated with menu selections, and publicity will reflect this information clearly to invited guests.
