Presupuesto: The decoration can be simple but has to be classy. You can either organise the event in a grand venue where minimum decoration is required and you can get some cost savings.
Work and explore with all your providers if they would like to participate in your event. Reciprocate their efforts in your communications (during, but also after the event).
Actividades: Work with a reputable caterer and work out a menu that is simply heavenly since it will be the core of the event. You can ask him to participate by offering you cost price or a discount in exchange for having his name associated to this event.
Complement the sumptuous meal with great entertainment. Being a gala affair where everyone gets the chance to dress up and have a good time for a good cause, you can entertain the guests with acts in between dishes, or have a mini concert after the dinner just to have a party and let your hair down! Select a classy act that fits into your gala theme: from famous local groups or singers to international performers.
Why not organise an auction of items that adds to the charity atmosphere? Make sure that this is communicated in your program so that your guests are aware of it and are prepared to do their part. You can include information and pictures of what are to be auctioned off in the invitation so that your guests have a preview before the event. Display these items during the cocktail where your guests can have a close-up look and whet up their desire to want to own these items, and get ready to auction!
If your company is contributing a lump sum to the organisation, why not do a check presentation doing the event? Invite some representatives from the organisation to share this moment with you and all present.
Consejos: Items to be auctioned can be art pieces or craftwork done by people from the social organisation that you are contributing to.
Other consumable goods like vintage wines can also be hot items. Work with other sponsors to see if they want to participate, and explore the different collaboration options with them.
The menu has to be simply extraordinarily. Work closely with your caterer to design a special menu, from the quality and originality of the food and wine to the presentation or the service
