Seido Karate 2015 Club Fund Raiser

Back again at the Upper Hutt Cossie Club on Friday 17 April (11 Logan Street, Upper Hutt) for a charity fund raiser in support of Upper Hutt Seido Karate.

The boys and girls, men and women of Upper Hutt Seido Karate are fund raising to travel to a charity tournament in New York.

Upper Hutt Cossie Seido ShowYou can have an amazing meal, hilarious show (clean and volunteers only) and help them out, all at the same time.

The Cossie club is a terrific venue, well set up and with top notch staff. The last show we did there (also for Seido) was fantastic - one of the best ever. We intend to go even further this time.

P2287964They had a fantastic turn out too, and Simon and I were both on form.

We do lots of fund raisers, and it is most rewarding when the organisers go all out to sell the tickets. A big enthusiastic crowd means a better show and more funds raised. Everyone benefits and we also have a good great time even though we have to put in a lot of work to make it happen.

Call Graeme on 027 444 1275 for tickets

Osu!

St Mary’s Catholic School Fundraiser

St Mary's Catholic School Fundraiser We did a show for this Catholic school in Carterton on 28 March and the Carterton Community Centre.

The organisers had put in a great deal of effort and there was a good crowd there, and lots of volunteers helping with catering and such.

The venue itself was fantastic too. And the crowd were really responsive, enthusiastic and fun.

All in all a successful night, money was raised and fun was had.

This is what we do.

Volunteer Firefighters’ Fund Raising

My first two shows were fund raisers at NZ Police, and since then I have done quite a number around NZ and Australia.

I’m stoked to be doing a fundraiser for the Taihape Volunteer Fire Brigade on 4 April. Not only a worthy cause but we love Taihape (NZ) and always have had great fun there.

As I am based now in Melbourne for much of the year - I’m keen to do some fund raising shows for Australian emergency services groups, and intend to offer a very good deal to the first few who book me.

 


Fundraising, How Much Does It Cost?

I get this question a lot, obviously. And it makes sense to ask it.

Fund raising profits

But I never get asked, “how much can we raise”? Which is surely a better question. I expect that most people are thinking along those lines and work it out for themselves. But there are some factors that are also worth considering.

I don't ask to be paid until after the event.

You can cancel a week beforehand with no cost.

So if you haven't sold enough tickets one week out you can walk away.

So the real question is this, “can you sell enough tickets to make it worthwhile?”

That is the main point. Everything else hinges on that.

 


Simple And Easy Ways To Raise Funds

Simple means that you can understand the process, and that the steps involved are within your capability.

Easy means that the necessary steps can be accomplished without much effort.

By these definitions there are no easy ways to raise funds for your cause. Every fund raising project requires effort. There are many simple ways to do it, and many of the steps are easy to take. But if all the steps were easy to take, then everyone could easily raise all the funds they would ever need. And they clearly cannot.

It takes effort to gain people's attention without annoying them. It takes effort to sell tickets and obtain cash. If you do put in the effort, you will succeed. If you are hoping for easy money, I regret to inform you that there isn't any to be had. The trick is to apply your effort where it has the greatest benefit.


Seido Karate Club Fund Raiser

Last night Simon and I performed at the Upper Hutt Cossie Club as a fund raiser for Seido Karate. The Cossie club is a terrific venue, well set up and with top notch staff.

P2287964They had a fantastic turn out too, and Simon and I were both on form.

This all combined to make a thoroughly fabulous show. The crowd were happy and buzzing at the start, and everyone had a great time, with lots of laughter and amazement. We do a really good show, the the crowd really got into it.

We do lots of fund raisers, and it is most rewarding when the organisers go all out to sell the tickets. A big enthusiastic crowd means a better show and more funds raised. Everyone benefits and we also have a good great time even though we have to put in a lot of work to make it happen.Upper Hutt Cossie Seido Show

Thanks to Graeme Jarvis and his Seido Karateka, and to the Upper Hutt Cossie Club for the opportunity to strut our stuff for a good cause.

I do think that this might have been the best show so far this year.

Osu!
