5 Ways To Throw An Awesome Charity Event

Posted by Suzi | March 11, 2013

There are some invitations you get in life that just seem to sparkle a little bit more than others. One such one arrived in my inbox last week entitled: The Extraordinary Banquet. Thrown in aid of Friends of The Earth (read all about them here), it totally had me at the subject line. Me being generally a sucker for any kind of banquet.

With experimental food (the menu actually has glow in the dark cucumbers on it) and performances inspired by the life and principles of Linda McCartney; Sir Paul, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Jo Wood and Clive Anderson all going, it sounded simply magical. Only problem is it’d be a bit of a 10, 600 mile schlep from Sydney (where I am).

Having recently been offered the opportunity to style an event, it got me thinking about what separates normal, nice occasions from the truly special ones.

With that in mind I asked fundraiser Beth Crackles, who’s one of the kick-ass organisers behind the night, her top 5 party tips for a money-raising affair.

Here you go!
