Four steps to help you on your way to a great night
1. Get some ideas
So you know you want to have a party, but you're not sure how to raise money at the same time? Never fear, we're full of ideas! Download our "How to hold a Eurovision party" factsheet to find out more.
2. Gather your materials
3. Run a sweepstake
Running a sweepstake will keep your guests on tenterhooks throughout the evening as they root for their chosen act. It's up to you if you select them randomly or let people choose their favourite country to win, and whether your guests can choose one or more acts each (remember to charge per act, not per guest)! However you do it, you can keep track of each of the acts and who is willing them on using our sweepstake sheet, where you can write down which guests have which countries, and our sweepstake scorecard where you can keep a tally of the results throughout the night. No need to print them off, just open it on your computer and fill it in on the night.
4. And the winner is...
At the end of the event, award a prize to your winner: this can be bragging rights, a favour from each of the other guests or a prize bought with a proportion of the takings from the evening. After that, there only things left to do are pay the remaining donations in and give yourself a huge pat on the back for pulling off a successful evening and helping us beat cystic fibrosis for good.
