OK, we’re not talking about erecting a tent city here, but you get the idea. This is one big slumber party, complete with all of the typical slumber party games and activities. For women, this would be a great opportunity to re-live their childhood. For girls, this would be just plain fun. Maybe the guys will also want to get involved!
All you need to get this party started is a very large room which can accommodate a large group of people. For schools, this would be your gym or auditorium. Essentially, any type of recreation center or lodge with access to bathrooms would do nicely. Everyone brings their own sleeping bag and pillows but you may need to provide some padding.
Make the event extra fun by having someone available to do manicures. Have games and activities planned out and telling ghost stories is always a big hit. If you plan to start the event early in the evening, you’ll probably need to have food catered for dinner. If you start after dinner, you may want to consider setting up a table of desserts. You earn revenue by charging an attendance fee (charge more if dinner is included).
You’ll want to start promoting this fundraiser at least 2-months in advance. Be sure to promote heavily on all your social media channels. Also, create posters and flyers that you can place throughout the community.
