Annual oyster roast charity event
We raise over 15k each year for our charity by hosting a huge oyster roast. It’s a simple event but appeals to large audiences in our area of Washington. Every year we add more activities and this past year we included an online raffle the week leading up to the event. On the day of the oyster roast, we had the platform draw winners and we announced them on a stage. People loved that!
There’s a local oyster bar that offers their venue and gives us a deal on the food and drinks. We open it to the public and sell tickets to the roast online using a RallyUp event. We typically get over 300 people to register although not everybody shows up on the day of the event, but they are happy that their donation went to charity (whether they can attend or not).
