Get Creative, With a Twist
There are a ton of events out there. And some of them are very popular for very good reasons. Golf events are always popular as people are always looking for an excuse to play golf. Walk and run events are always a great way to get the community together for a fun, focused exercise.
But you can take a great event and turn it into an amazing one with a little creativity.
Take, for example, this golf event by the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation, Arizona Glow Golf Tournament. It takes the excitement of a normal golf charity event and combines that with a fun new idea, playing with glow-in-the-dark apparel (think bracelets and neon clothing).
This tweak means that this isn’t just another golf tournament, but it’s now an event that is unique and memorable. That kind of attention can create buzz to get both normal golfers and new donors excited and talking.
What can we learn?
Don’t be afraid to take chances and have some fun! Putting a twist on a popular idea is a great way to stand out from the crowd and get your community talking about you.
You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel to make a successful event. But, it is about more than just putting “glow” in front of an event that often has success. Look into your community. Use your contacts. Find out what makes your community unique and what resonates with the people there.
Hold brainstorming sessions with your contacts about what they enjoy about the mission, community, and what other people love in the community. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, but listen to others if they have reservations.

Creating a memorable event is a massive undertaking to coordinate, but you can get some help to take the heavy lifting off your plate to free up time to focus on the creative aspects and marketing it to your community.
Giveffect is a great way to streamline automation for registrations, donations, volunteers, and marketing efforts. This gives you more time with your volunteers in the field preparing for the event and less time behind the desk keeping records straight.
“Creating online events is a breeze and looks great! With our old software, we had to pay per online event and the process is antiquated. With Giveffect we can have an idea and create a page for it in no time at all!” Charleen C., Development Manager said about her work with Giveffect.
