I am hoping you can help me! I am trying to sell tickets for an event to help The Christian Shelter. I did a similar event in February and sold out quickly but people seem to be busy during the summer. I am a local and decided this was my year to do more. I started doing fundraisers for the Christian Shelter since they seemed to have the biggest need. My main reason for starting was to help the homeless children since they are the helpless ones. The event is @ The Deli at Pecan Square and 50% of the ticket sales goes to the shelter. It is a dinner buffet that includes desserts and drinks. In addition, people can buy chances for giveaways and all of that money goes to the shelter. Multiple business have donated items for the giveaways. Tickets can be purchased from The Deli at Pecan Square or from me. The shelter really needs financial support and needed items. People that cannot attend could still make a donation (monetary or needed items). Do you think you could do a blog or do you have any connections to get the word out to sell tickets and help the shelter?
The Christian Shelter, incorporated in 1979, is a crisis shelter and has helped numerous homeless individuals over the years. In 2016 the Christian Shelter housed, fed, and ministered a total of 949 homeless individuals(291 men, 332 women, and 326 children). It should be noted that more than 30% of the homeless guests are children and that percentage has increased dramatically in the past three years. Sadly, over 1500 guests were turned away in 2016 due to lack of bed space. Shelter services include safe housing, nutritious meals, spiritual guidance, money management classes, and parenting support groups. In addition, guests are assisted with needs (housing, finances, jobs, mental health, and medical issues) in order to transition out of the shelter.
Thanks for your consideration,
