Once pre-event decisions have been set, and the budget, venue and publicity is launched, the detailed planning of the presentation’s theme, menu, décor, game and activity events, and time progression begin. These decisions will be affected, as well, by the prior considerations of audience, venue, regional and local location, purpose and budget. Orphaned to Hatred will work closely with the organization planners to determine preferences, needs, any prior planning decisions, sources of donations for raffles, auctions or prizes, and other desires or thematic considerations. A Playboy bunny chorus line is entirely inappropriate for an event benefiting an elementary or high school. An older target audience would likely not be impressed by a theme utilizing scanty or bathing suit attire. It is important to think of the audience’s comfort and pleasure in the chosen theme and activities, and Orphaned to Hatred has experience in choosing and planning these details for maximum interest and appropriateness.
Orphaned to Hatred is also aware of the need to think of gratitude from the fundraising organization to all donors and guests, and to assure that all contributors are left with an effusive expression of the thanks of the organizers for their participation. Fundraising event guests can be helped to feel special by offering thank-yous in the form of party favors. Party-themed mints and candies, personalized lollipops or especially themed cookies, even attractive and commemorative containers or tins, are valued as a reminder of the evening’s pleasures, and will leave attendees with another feel-good reason for fond memories of the organization and its purpose.
