The information listed below should serve as a guide to anyone planning a casino party fundraiser event.

You may want to consult with independent legal counsel to ensure your event complies with Florida law. Casino Fundraiser Goal:
When planning a casino fundraiser, casino charity event or charity poker tournament, having a realistic goal of how much money you would like to raise is the key to a successful event. This will determine the price of your entrance fee, script voucher prices and expenses. Once this key goal is determined you can then begin to figure out your pricing and expenses
Casino Fundraiser Revenue: Revenue for a casino fundraiser will usually come in the form of the following activities. Ticket sales Casino table sponsorship Additional casino script vouchers or raffle ticket sales Other
Casino Fundraiser Ticket Sales:
The main key in reaching your above casino fundraising goal is to get people to attend your casino fundraising event. Everyone involved in your casino fundraiser committee should be responsible for selling tickets or providing names for mailing and invitation lists. Determining head count is critically important, not only for the amount of casino tables you will need, but also for food counts. This is probably going to be your main source of income for the event and your fundraising goal depends directly on getting people to the event.
Sponsoring Casino Fundraiser Tables:
Sponsoring casino tables is a great way to not only pay for the casino tables but to provide additional revenue towards your casino fundraisimg goal. At a minimum, table sponsorship should at least cover the cost of the table. However from our experience many business’ are willing to not only contribute money for the tables, but to donate prizes as well. Why not invite your sponsors and their employees to attend your casino fundraiser? Prepare nice placards or sponsor cards to sit on each table. Ask your sponsor if they would like to have small brochures or literature for their products at the table. They should understand that not only is their donation going to a great cause, but they are getting some great advertising as well.
Additional Casino Fundrasier Script Vouchers or Raffle Ticket Sales:
As part of their entrance fee to to the event guests are usually given an initial voucher of a nominal amount of “casino script”. The idea here is for them to make additional, voluntary donations for more "casino script" or raffle tickets depending on how you are running your event. We suggest having a table set up and attended by one of your charity members to take additional donations for "casino script" or raffle ticket purchases. Keep your suggested donation in the range that your guests are comfortable with and remember it is not required for them to donate to receive addtional "casino script". You may want to consider having a credit card machine (contact your local bank for rental machine info) to make it easier for your guests to make additional donations.
Other Casino Fundraiser Revenue Streams:
You may also bring in additional revenue towards your goal with food and drink sales and silent auctions. These can vary wildly depending on the type of event, where it is held (hotel vs. church hall), the type of guest and the value of prizes you have for the auction. All these things should be taken into consideration when planning your casino night fundraiser.
