It’s crunch time! With only two days left to get everything secured and in order, we have to work really hard. Saturday is the day of the music festival! The fundraiser is going to raise funds for The Igloo Parlor. All proceeds go to opening the establishment. Right now we need to do the following:
- Find Tents for our refreshment table & PA System
- Get tables ready
- Finalize workers of the event
- Get donation boxes
After all this we will see all of our hard work come into play. I can’t wait and hope for a smooth and fun fundraiser.
With the clock ticking and me waiting to hear back from potential investors — I can’t just sit around and not try to raise funds for the family business. My boyfriend, Brother, and I are all three musicians and have put our creativity to work. We’re thinking of hosting a Music Fest to raise funds and promote the ice cream shop and utilize the Unsuccessful Entertainment Youtube channel as our way to promote other performers that will be playing. The Fundraiser won’t only help the ice cream parlor, but our youtube channel will be used to help promote fellow musicians, artists, photographers, etc in the area and get recognition.
I will have to think fast and correct when coming up with this fundraiser. My investors are on a stand-still looking over the information I had forwarded over to them. So, I have to act now and get things in order. The problem is, I only have $30 to create this shin-dig. Unless, partial of the funds raised goes towards the venue.
I’m thinking of hosting this as an outside event. So people from 13 and Up can come see bands play and enjoy a meal of hot dogs and ice cream. I do have contacts with my old high school that maybe willing to help me put this all together. In order to get this started, I would need to make a Facebook like page for the Igloo Parlor and spread it around rapidly to gain attention.
Not only am I doing the fundraiser in person, but I am going to re-vamp my GoFundMe for those quite a distance away to put inside the donation pool. This will also be advertised everywhere. I am very goal driven and stubborn, and this will be accomplished.
If you guys have any tips for me to accomplish my fundraising goal – don’t be shy! Share them!
