Valentine’s Day Fundraising Idea

An enticing Valentine’s Day Fundraising Idea is conveyed with An Evening of Dancing & Entertainment, held on Saturday, Feb 8, during The 21st Annual Valentine’s Day Dance benefiting the Illinois Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Each year this successful Valentine’s Day fundraising event accomplishes its goal of helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in sustaining family support groups, financial assistance programs, public and professional education, advocacy and cutting-edge research projects.

Valentine's Day Fundraising

An enchanting evening for both couples and singles, the Valentine’s Day Dance is not an ordinary fundraising event, rather a romantic evening of dancing, dinner, games and live music. This semi-formal dance is held annually on the Saturday before Valentine’s Day. Musical entertainment by the talented Tony Caponi keeps this event lively, with the final Valentine’s Day touch of scrumptious chocolates. This irresistible gala is fun for its donors, and they have returned year after year.

Another sweet aspect of this festive Valentine’s Day fundraising event includes the convenience of managing event details through a user-friendly online fundraising website. Donors are able to register and make secure online donations, in addition to learning more about the cause, fundraising goals, and event logistics. This online payment option, also called eCommerce credit card processing, allows donors to utilize an online gateway for internet credit card processing. Fundraising software for non-profits manages attendee registration and holds the advantage of its ease-of-use and interactivity provided for each event participant, in addition to providing numerous tracking and reporting tools for fundraising event administrators.

Another great example of a creative Valentine’s Day fundraising idea hosted by LLS is the Valentine’s luncheon and fashion show, which took place on Weds, Feb. 12. Sharing these ideas may spark interest for a future fundraising event you’d like to host during this special time of year.
