The Capen team are obsessed with Halloween and this year is no exception. 👻
Last year one of Capen’s founders, Simon, went all out with his Hannibal costume and this year we are expecting big things from him. We love Halloween, it’s fun and gives you an opportunity to be creative, inventive and scary. What’s not to love? Not only is Halloween a great time for your team, it is also a perfect opportunity to fundraise. Here are some terrifyingly great fundraising Halloween raffle ideas.
Corporates and Companies
You’ve been so busy at work this year and it’s time to take you and your team on a little treat to reward all the hard work you have all done. Giving your team a day of fun is a great morale boost but it also helps you all raise a little money for your chosen charities. It’s great having fun, but it’s even better when you can have fun while helping others - even if it’s just a little bit. Have your Halloween treat during the working day where your team dress up in their best costumes (and give a little dosh if they don’t!) or go all out at night with a terrifying office party. Hold your spooktacular raffle at your office event where your team can win an extra day off or a lazy morning.
Spooky Online Raffle
Have yourself an online raffle featuring your scariest prizes. Hold the draw at your Halloween party, event or bake sale and celebrate the winners together. It’s a great way to drum up some excitement before an event and by having your raffle online, you don’t need to worry about paper tickets! Simply read out the winners name or have everyone use a Hashtag on Twitter to get the conversation rolling on social media. Some spooky prizes could be tickets to The London Dungeon or a creepy Jack The Ripper Tour in London. Need help sourcing prizes? We’ve got you covered!
Raise money with your scariest dad jokes
Hold a comedy night with your most cringe-worthy friends and family. Charge people a few pounds for a night of shockingly horrific comedy topped off with a worst Halloween costume competition. *Winner gets to show off a few of their best dad jokes*. Anyone who donates more than £5 gets a free entry into your amazing online raffle and have your worst costume winner announce the raffle winners.
Combine Halloween with comedy to make it a seriously special day and have everyone getting involved both at the event and online. By providing a Hashtag like (#JokeHalloween) you can get everyone to tweet their favourite (or least favourite) dad joke with the same hashtag! Raise money and get a conversation started.
"What time did the man go to the dentist? Tooth-hurty" ...
Where your treat could be a huge cash prize or a fantastic prize. Make your Trick-or-Treat raffle online friendly where free tickets can be won into the raffle by tweeting in a photo of your scariest selfie with a catchy hashtag. By having a Halloween raffle online, you are getting a conversation started and helping get everyone involved and engaged in your campaign. Make sure your audience knows who you are raising funds for and why and make fundraising online fun.
Fear Fest Movie Night
If you are like some of us here at Capen, you’d prefer a night of terrifying horror on the big screen. Grab a projector and host your very own Halloween themed movie fest, showcasing the very best horror films to date. Ask everyone to donate some funds for your chosen charities and scream the night away for a good cause. Have your online raffle live onscreen during the interval of your fearful movie night, where players can find out the winner together.
