Host a party for All Souls!
For the fourth year, a key fundraiser for the All Souls Procession will be the Nights of 1000 Parties: house parties hosted by individuals–that’s YOU!–to help raise funds for the All Souls Procession.
Last year, we raised close to $10,000 through ten parties. For 2016, we are aiming to raise $25,000 with 25 parties. And we need your help to make it happen!
Most parties will be held between September 30 and October 23, but you can do another time if it’s better for you. Your house party could be a small dinner party, a big blow out with live music, a cake walk, a silent auction, whatever works for you! Just make sure your guests know it’s a fundraiser! (Note: House parties–that is, actually inviting people into your home rather than holding a public event–are by far the most effective way to hold a party fundraiser.)
All hosts will receive an All Souls Procession t-shirt and poster, and hosts who raise over $1000 will receive a pair of tickets for the VIP seating section at the All Souls Procession Finale ceremony. Plus you’ll be invited to Volunteer Coordinator Melanie Cooley’s house party–and she throws good parties!
For details on how to become a Nights of 1000 Parties host, fill out the application on our Nights of 1000 Parties page.
We have a packet of resources for hosts and will try to (depending on when your party takes place) have someone from Many Mouths One Stomach at your party to answer questions and hang out with you!
