Dinner party at your home – instead of asking guests to bring a dish, ask them to make a donation. Take the dinner opportunity to talk about epilepsy the need for treatment and awareness.
Happy Hour – Ask your local popular bar if you could host a happy hour at their bar, ask them to donate appetizers and offer special prizes. Invite your friends and ask them for a donation at the door. You can get creative as ask the bar to have a signature cocktail in which all or a portion of the proceeds go towards your fundraising for an agreed upon amount of time.
Birthday Party- This year instead of collecting birthday presents, ask people to donate to the Epilepsy Foundation instead. You can even host a Virtual Birthday Party and collect donations via a Facebook Fundraiser!
Wedding Gifts – On your wedding website and add your fundraising page to your registry links and ask people to make donations in lieu of gifts. Or add a card and envelop at each place setting and ask people to consider making a donation in celebration of your wedding.
