Here’s an event profile of a Zoom show fundraiser I performed Sunday night, June 28, 2020.
While this event profile will be detailed, it might not seem that way. WHY?
Because hosting my Zoom fundraiser show is simple. I mean suuuuuper simple. Super simple equals fewer details to manage. In fact, if you’re trying to raise funds for a worthwhile cause, partnering with me might be the easiest, most efficient fundraiser you ever do.
And remember: many charitable organization are currently experiencing workforce declines. Simply put, this means fewer employees with fewer hours are present to run events. That’s another reason my Zoom Show Fundraiser is so great — it literally takes less than 30 minutes on the part of the sponsor — a few social media posts — a few emails — DONE!
A few details that are NOT in my Zoom Show Fundraiser:
1. No venue rental
2. No catering
3. No limitations on how far people travel to be a part of the event, giving the sponsor a far greater pool of potential donors.
4. And NO expenses for 1, 2, and 3
The shift to a virtual online Zoom show makes the event process leaner and cleaner. Like I said, it “might be the easiest, most efficient fundraiser you ever do.”
The June 28th Event Profile
2018: A wonderful family see me perform at Kennywood Park, America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Park, near Pittsburgh. I later would find out they’d come to see my show over FORTY times. Wow!
2019: One day after a show at the Kennywood Park, the mom, Jamee, asks me to perform for a fundraiser to raise money for research for Angelman’s Syndrome and FAST (Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics). We work out the details and the live, in-person performance (like nearly all shows were back then) is scheduled for late August 2020.
March 2020: Covid-19 changes the world, including the way I perform shows.
May 16, 2020: We shift the show from a live in-person show in August and schedule it on Zoom for June 28.
Jamee shares the link for the event on social media. Ticket purchases and donations immediately and steadily start coming in.
June 28, 2020: Show time! I spends a fun evening laughing and sharing amazement with a couple hundred wonderful people online, raising awareness & thousands of dollars for a worthwhile cause.
Post show email from the event sponsor:
Thank you so much!! I have heard from so many people already who messaged me after to say how much fun their family had! Thank you for being so easy to work with. I know you said my son has seen over a dozen shows. Let the record show he has seen you perform in person at Kennywood at least 40 times over the past 2 years and he laughs hysterically EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. 😂😂😂
There is a very promising clinical trial that is taking enrollment soon and my son is eligible. So, thank you again for your help in raising this money and awareness. Literally, every dollar counts at this point.
Hope to see u in person soon! Jamee
A great cause.
A great way to fund it.
A great group of giving people.
