  • Fun Fundraising Idea for Theater Events

    Making a game out of the fundraiser

    We recently had a customer reach out to tell us about the creative game her organization used as part of their chocolate bar fundraiser and how happy they were with the results.

    Pat Farrell of Mashpee Middle High School created a Golden Ticket game to go with the Blue Falcon Theatre Company’s production of the musical Willy Wonka.

    She wrote, “Each of the 34 cast members had one box of chocolates to sell. In each box I hid one "Golden Ticket" for one free admittance to the show. Each bar had a sticker on it advertising the show.”

    What we loved about Pat’s story is that she made her fundraising item tie in so cleverly with her event. It reminded us that there are so many ways to make your fundraiser an interesting part of your group or event that will get donors involved.

    It’s easy to see why the chocolate bars were such big sellers for Pat’s organization!

    Pat's fundraising game was so cleverly tied in with her theater production. Good placement can really take your fundraiser to the next level. Old Fashion Candy chocolate bars come in large sizes, regular bars, and different flavors such as almond and caramel.

    On our tools page, we have different themed wraps and signs to add flair to your fundraiser.

    Pat goes on to say, “The rest of the bars were to be sold at the show. However, they have been such a hit that some kids are asking for more boxes to sell, so we had to order the additional boxes. It’s been so much fun hearing about the anticipation and delight people experienced as they looked for the Golden Ticket.”

    A goal, game, or contest can make your fundraiser fun for your team and your donors.

    Pat said, “If I had known how well it would go over, I would have ordered double the amount.”

    We carry Donation Dots, an easy and fun fundraising game that is great for community involvement.

    We work with successful fundraisers all over the country. Please let us know your fundraising success stories! If you’re looking for ideas, or curious about what products Old Fashion Candy has to offer call us at 1-800-500-1234.

  • Tips for a Successful Brochure Fundraiser

    Many groups and schools choose to use brochures and catalog fundraisers because they take pressure off of sellers. They are simple, no risk fundraisers, and many come with no upfront cost. Here are our tips for making your brochure fundraiser a success!

    Check out our Celestial Candle and Excite! Your Snacktime brochures.

    Be concrete when explaining how your fundraiser will help your group. Donors want to see a clear connection between their donation and your goal. Let donors know the specifics of where their money will go.

    Brochures offer an excellent opportunity to expand your sales with email and social media. You can reach a larger audience with more ease because most people check their email and social media regularly. Contact family, friends, friends of your school or group, and anyone at all who may be interested.

    You can even email a copy of the brochure to potential donors and let them order via email!

    Let people know some of the hot items available in your brochures. If you are ready with suggestions about items that donors will find fun and appealing it can help your donors make a decision and buy.

    You can have an impressive and successful fundraiser when you make sure your message gets to your donors, and your brochures have right items for your audience. We have two brochures loaded with proven sellers:

    Our Celestial Candle brochures are a good year round fundraiser that makes great gifts.

    Our Excite! Your Snacktime has specialty items your patrons will enjoy.

    See for yourself what brochures can do for your fundraiser. There is no risk involved with our brochure fundraisers because they are FREE to order.

  • Prom Fundraising Idea

    Here is an easy prom fundraising idea from a previous blog post.  We received many success stories from our customers, so we wanted to share it with you again.

    It is PROM TIME! That means it is time to break out the decorations, formal attire, and some fundraising. You may be head of the prom committee or need to do some springtime fundraising for a class trip or sports equipment. Using prom as the time for your fundraiser can really pay off. Here's a handy idea with our chocolate roses that can help boost your spring school fundraising:


    1. Download our printable sheet here of "will you go to prom with me" cards.
    2. Print out and cut apart cards (6 cards per 8.5x11 sheet, so you have no waste!). You can use any color paper but if you have card stock or a thicker paper your cards will hold up better.
    3. Hole punch each card in the middle at the top and using ribbon, tie one card onto each rose.  If you choose to, you can punch two holes close to each other so your card will sit more centered on the candy stick.
    4. The giver can write their potential prom date's name at the top and sign their name at the bottom on the dotted lines.

    Now, you/your group can either pre-tie on all cards and ribbons to the rose or if you have a table setup, leave them loose and only tie them on as they are purchased. This way makes it easier for people to write their names on the cards. If you have a table set up, having pens on hand will also be helpful for purchasers to write their names on the tags.

    If you use curling ribbon, you can curl the ends of the ribbons after they are tied to add some fun or simply tie it into a classic bow. Use your school colors, prom colors or just a bright and fun variety! Either way, your fundraiser is sure to be the hit of the school and not only bring in money for your cause but also spread some prom cheer!
