Charity Fun Casino

Fun Casino Charity NightIf you’re looking for ways to raise funds for Charity, a charity fun casino fundraiser could be just the thing you’re looking for. A charity fun casino draws in a wide range of people, young and old, male and female. Its wide reaching appeal is thanks to the fact that a casino has an air of elegance and sophistication attached to it which stems from old Bond movies like Casino Royal and Diamonds are Forever. Even in modern Hollywood, casino games are prevalent; including movies like Ocean’s Eleven, Casino, The Sting and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. For so many different reasons, a Casino is the epitome of ‘cool’, so it’s a great way to get people through the door for your charity fund raising event.

So how does it work?

Normally a fun casino is booked and paid for by the host, and guests are treated to free fun money to play on full size, authentic looking casino tables. At the end of the night, the person with the most money wins a prize, usually a bottle of Champagne or a certificate. All the games are just for fun. No real money changes hands, and it’s a great way to entertain guests and drum up an exciting atmosphere at your event.

A charity fund raising fun casino is slightly different. Instead of guests receiving free fun money on the night, they are encouraged to pay for the fun money to raise funds for the named cause. This way, no real money changes hands on the casino tables, but the charity of choice receives a donation each time someone wishes to play. The great thing about this is that most players lose their money on the Roulette table when they make brave bets, and lots of players like to make brave bets, therefore, they’ll be likely to come back again and again to buy more fun money with which to play with!

A fun casino event is such a fun night and you’ll find that all of your guests will really want to play and raise money for the charity. There are different ways we can raise money, so if you’d like to find out more, please call us today for a chat.

So how do we make money?

You’ll need to charge people for the fun money to raise funds. It’s completely up to you what you choose to charge for the fun money, and it often depends on the type of guests you are inviting or the tone of the event. At grand scale charity balls and benefits, it is not unheard of to charge up to £50 for a $100 fun money bill to play on the tables, whereas, in a smaller, and more low key charity fundraiser at a village fete for example, it might be more sensible to charge £5 for $100 or even sell $50 bills for £1, whatever price you think you will sell the most amount of fun money at. The best way to work out how to charge for the money is to decide how much money you’d like to make on the night, and then divide that figure by the number of guests. For example, if you’d like to raise £1,000 and you’re expecting 100 people to attend, you should charge £10 for the fun money. Some people at the event won’t buy the fun money and some will buy twice or even three times, so it should even out nicely.

How do you make sure guests buy the fun money?

You might be wondering how to convince wary spenders to part with their hard earned cash? If the pull of charitable giving is not enough for your guests, you’ll need an anchor; something to lure them in and make them want to spend. The best way to do that is to offer prizes! What you offer as a prize depends on what sort of money you are charging for the fun money. If your guests have paid £1 or £2 for their fun money, a nice bottle of wine or a bottle of Bubbly would go down a treat, however, if you’re charging a bit more for the fun money, you might want to offer something a bit more substantial. You don’t want to have to spend a lot of money on the prizes, as this will defeat the object of the night, so there are lots of ways to generate prizes for free.  Call Harlequin Fun casino Hire today and find out what prizes we have helped organise in the past.
