Host a Fundraising or Awareness Event

Many of our generous supporters have made a difference by organizing awareness events in their community. These events allow individuals to raise funds in honor or in memory of their loved one, while raising awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Here are just a few examples of popular fundraising and awareness events:

Birthday and Anniversary Celebrations
Collect contributions in lieu of gifts - now that’s a gift that really makes a difference!

“Dine Out to Donate” Events
Organize a dining event at a local restaurant that will contribute a percentage of the evening’s revenue. Choose someplace local
so friends and family can easily get there.  

Participating chain restaurants include, but are not limited to:
Panera Bread, Texas Roadhouse, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebee’s, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Chevys Fresh Mex and Houlihan’s.

Concerts and Shows
Host a concert or comedy show. Sell tickets, show up and have fun!

Auctions and Tricky Trays
Host an auction or tricky tray event. Tricky trays can be a standalone event, or they can be part of something larger. Either way,
they are a great fundraiser! 

Classes for Charity
Get your friends, family and colleagues together for a yoga, kickboxing, karate, art, or paint and sip class. The possibilities
are endless!

Sporting Events
Host a golf outing, bowling, dodgeball, hockey game. This is also a great opportunity to host an auction or tricky tray.

Merchandise Sales Events
Organize a jewelry, Pampered Chef, pocketbook party, Yankee Candle sale, 5K team apparel sale or a bake sale, and contribute
the proceeds. Shop your way to success.

Dress Down Day
Hold a Dress Down Day at your office or school and allow participants to wear casual attire for the day by making a
contribution.
