The month of May is associated with Mother’s Day, a time to remember Mom and go out of your way to shower her with love and attention. With a Mother’s Day spa fundraiser, your organization can help pamper and celebrate these wonderful women while raising funds for your cause.
Once you have selected a date and location, extend an invitation to local salons and independent manicurists, hair stylists, cosmetologists and massage therapists. The idea is to create a relaxing, fun atmosphere for busy moms and offer as many elements of a classic spa experience as is feasible for the space you have available for your use. Look for a large outdoor space, such as a park or large parking lot where tents can be set up, or a fire hall or school cafeteria as a rain location.
Invite local restaurants or caterers to provide refreshments for your spa day. A local florist could provide floral arrangements to dress up table linens to offer a lovely, seasonal decorating solution, while a professional photographer’s services would let guests take home a memento of their fun day. Professionals in your community may be willing to volunteer their talents and time to show their support.
You can add to the fun by offering spa and beauty gifts as drawing or door prizes. Gift certificates to a day spa or a tea house, gift baskets stuffed with luxurious scented lotions and handcrafted soaps, or tea sachets or flavored coffees with delicious snacks like chocolate-drizzled biscotti are all great possibilities. Using raffle ticket design software, you can print customized raffle tickets that match the theme of the prizes offered to add a touch of your group’s unique style.
Good luck and have fun with your fundraising event!
