More green, more Spring

March means St. Patrick’s Day and the beginning of Spring. Now is a great time to host a fundraising event because you can use the holiday for inspiration. The 2017 East and West Coast rides are also available for registration!

  • GroupRaise
    • GroupRaise is a super simple and effective way to fundraise with your favorite restaurant. Have a fun meal themed around St. Patrick’s Day, see below for details.
      1. Sign up on their website here
      2. Select a date and restaurant
      3. Create an event on Facebook to invite your friends and share your fundraising page.
      4. At the end of the meal, participants put their receipt in a box and the restaurant will send you a check with the money you’ve raised that you can send to YSC.
  • In a pinch
    • Whoever doesn’t wear green to the office gets pinched for a dollar! Have a jar at the office for anyone who does not wear green to donate to your Tour de Pink ride.
  • Host a potluck
    • Ask your friends to come together and make traditional Irish dishes. Ask for donations during the meal and play a game. Whoever gets caught saying St. Patrick’s Day or other buzz words during the event has to put a dollar in the jar.
    • Have a St. Patrick’s Day themed raffle. Have one grand prize for people to buy tickets and test their luck.
