Finding ideas for your fundraiser can be hard. Finding items that will excite you audience can a key component to the success of your charity fundraiser. Vacation packages and restaurant gift cards are good experiences to showcase, however, auction items that are unique and one-of-a-kind are the most profitable. What better way to give your guests that than by offering a world-class, unique, celebrity professional sports experience packages?
‘Meet a Sports Star’ Packages are invaluable for charity fundraisers for three reasons.
1. Size of industry
In 2013 alone, the estimated size of the entire sports industry in the United States capsized at a net worth of 438.5 billion dollars in profit. Roughly, that makes up for about 3% (one thirty-second) of the United States entire GDP. Sports are a huge part of American’s lives. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, there is always a sport getting primetime television time. Big-time sports do not exclusively hold the reigns. It was estimated that 25 million kids between the ages of 5-17 actively play a competitive sport. These numbers speak to the importance and relevance we all give sports in our everyday lives. Why is this important to your fundraising efforts? When picking out auction donation ideas, it is important to remember your audience. Your donors have a drastic impact on what will be highly bid on and what will not. Once-in-a-lifetime sports packages are sure to drive the auction bids higher and higher. Bringing the right auction items specific to the event is also important. Sports experience packages are great auction items for school athletic boosters, community athletic events, charity golf outings, etc.
2. A True Fan
Whether you are a mother, a father, a sister, a brother, a cousin, an uncle, or a close friend to one, you know someone who has devoted his or her lives to a sport. For more than a century, Baseball holds the official name of being “America’s favorite pastime.” We love it not only because it is in our hearts, but also perhaps because it is so deeply in the hearts of the ones we love. Imagine being able to give your guests the opportunity to give their son a chance to play a flag football game with their NFL hero. Which brings us to,
