How to Host a Breast Cancer Awareness Gala or Event
Although October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that doesn’t mean breast cancer awareness events should only be held during that time frame. Breast cancer awareness events are a necessity all year long. Of all the events used to increase awareness of breast cancer, probably the most popular is the gala dinner. This event pairs the attire and elegance normally found at a black tie affair and melds it with fun activities that raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
If you’re entertaining the idea of hosting a company-sponsored breast cancer awareness-themed gala in the near future, ADVANCE Custom Promotions is ready, willing and able to offer advice, tips and suggestions for making your event a success on every level. We’ll also recommend some great promotional breast cancer gala giveaways that will satisfy your various needs.
The first step to making your gala a success is to spread the word about the event. Once you’ve finalized the guest list, it’s time to place an order customized invitations. Be sure to include all of the important details (date, time, admission/donation pricing, etc.) and provide a website link where guests can RSVP. Decked out with a full-color label on the outside, and a full-color customized invitation insert, our customizable “Message in a Bottle” is a unique way to make an announcement and spark interest in your event.
Once the guests arrive, present them with memorable and practical party favors. For the ladies, we recommend our customizable Breast Cancer Awareness Heart Charm Bracelet. This silvertone finish accessory features a lobster clasp closure and a choice of custom laser engraving or screen imprinting. For the men, we suggest our imprinted Leather Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon Pin. Each pin features a durable leather ribbon with a pin closure that looks smart on any lapel.
A wonderful way to raise additional funds during the evening is to host a series of raffles. Participating guests can buy tickets and every ½ hour, one lucky winner can be drawn. Winners will receive a basket filled with some of our most popular promotional products such as Messenger Bags, iPhone Cases, K-Cups, Bamboo Cutting Boards, Fleece Hoodies and whatever breast cancer gala giveaways that match your events needs and budget.
As your guests bid goodnight, no doubt tired from all of the celebrating, you can present them with a customized sleep mask. It’s a nice way to say “thank you” for their time and generosity, and it gives them something to remember this special night.
These are just a few of the many ideas and breast cancer gala giveaways that organizations can incorporate into their upcoming breast cancer awareness galas. If you have any ideas or suggestions of your own, please feel free to share them in the comments below. Thanks!
