A Fundraising Case Study
Rick Olin, a second-year Lymphomaniac, had an idea for an event that fit his interests. Rick loves beer and he decided to organize a beer tasting fundraiser at his home. Rick's son Max enthusiastically volunteered to help. Together they selected beers, wrote descriptions of each offering, and created a music playlist for the party.
Rick invited about 10-12 friends to the beer tasting. His Homer Simpson inspired invitation is attached. As you can see on the invitation, Rick explained that he is biking in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Around 10 people were at the beer tasting. Rick provided the beers, tasting-sized glasses, simple and tasty snacks, and a beer scoring sheet on which participants could record and share their ratings. Every 30 minutes or so he brought out a special craft beer for the group to taste in addition to the well-stocked, ice-cooled collection of "regular" craft beers. Rick's wife, Debbie, volunteered to refrain from tasting in case a designated driver was needed.
A laptop computer was available and open to Rick's fundraising page.
About halfway through the party, Rick turned down the music and he and I talked about the Scenic Shore event and how the money donated to LLS supports research that is saving lives today.
The party started at 3 pm and lasted until 6 pm or so.
The results: $875 raised! With Rick's personal donation to kickstart his fundraising, he is at $975 and will be undoubtedly be wearing a Sprinter Jersey this year.
