Toga party

Choosing a theme for your fundraising event will make it a night to remember and a toga party keeps the cost of hiring an outfit to a minimum! Continue the Greek or Roman theme through your decorations, food and with Bacchus-based beverages.

Denise Softley, member, Lichfield Ladies Circle, Staffordshire:

'Lichfield Ladies Circle had great fun organising and hosting a fundraising toga night in aid of Whizz-Kidz charity last October, which was held at Darnford Moor Golf Club. The event challenged guests with: How many ways can you transform a sheet into a Greek-themed costume (even if held together with numerous safety pins)? The event was promoted through the Lichfield Ladies Circle Facebook page, the flyer was emailed to Lichfield Round Table, Spires, 41 club and Tangles, and members approached friends and family. We sold 70 tickets for £25 each, which included a three-course Greek buffet, disco and guest entertainment from the Rock Choir. In total £1,276.54 was raised, which included the proceeds from a raffle, heads and tails game, a donation from a professional photographer for each photo taken (with a Greek-themed backdrop) and £350 match funding from Vodafone. The evening was a great success - having the Greek theme running across the whole event, from the food to the decoration of the venue, really worked. Feedback also praised the use of a local venue and the tickets not being too expensive.'
