General Fundraising Info:
**A Deposit of $150 is Required to book a fundraising event (we accept PayPal, Venmo or Checks for Deposits)

Why? We know at times, people like to sign up for events at the last minute. However, late registrations, makes it very challenging for events like these which take large amounts of planning, preparing, time and all of the materials, goody bags which are ordered well in advance. We must ensure that we are well-prepared and that every single artist has everything they need for a fun, creative, let-loose experience!
*We do charge Distance/travel fees 15 + miles from Fishkill, for Fundraisers, however, we try our best to help your not-for-profit, buy reducing this (Beginning at $50+ depending on location).
It is Extremely important for event organizers to offer incentives to increase ticket sales!
Some Examples are: Themes, food/drinks, raffles, vendor booths, organize a Team and work together!…etc…These help increase ticket sales and bring in extra money for the event! Also, it is crucial for the fundraising organizer to PUBLICLY PROMOTE the event to raise registrations. We can create a Beautiful flyer for sharing on social media, email, and to print and distribute and we will also help promote your event via social media. We have many years of fundraising experience, and are happy to work with you to share ideas about how to optimize attendance!
You provide the tables, chairs and people…We bring all the materials needed from tablecloths to paints, easels, canvases, music and FUN!
