Hosting your own fundraising or awareness event can be a unique and meaningful way to make a difference and benefit others. If you’re looking for a great way to support a cause dedicated to improving the quality of life of people living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus why not organize a third party event. This is an event organized by you, however big or small, where proceeds are donated to SB&H.

Fundraising is an important part of SB&H activities that sustains programs, contributes to research and helps those who need us.

Here are some examples of successful third party events:
 

  • Bake Sales
  • Barbeques
  • Bingo Nights
  • Bowling Tournaments
  • Car Washes
  • Competitions (billiards, darts, scrabble, Texas Hold’em)
  • Dinner/Dances
  • Endurance Challenges (bike-a-thon, walk-a-thon, spin-a-thon)
  • Garage Sales
  • Golf Tournaments
  • Fashion Shows
  • School Fundraisers
  • Street Fairs & Carnival Days
  • Used Book Sales
  • Wine & Cheese Parties
     

Another great way to make a difference is to include SB&H in an event you are already planning. Instead of a gift encourage guests to bring a donation to SB&H. Some celebrations you might consider doing this for include:
 

  • Birthdays
  • Graduations
  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Retirement Parties
