If you have been thinking of holding a dinner party but have been waiting for the right opportunity, then the Big Dinner Party in March is a great chance to hold one for a good cause.
This dinner party is one that you can hold at your own home to raise money for MS patients around Australia. The great thing is – you choose everything for the night: the food, the guests, the theme; it's all up to you. It's a chance to enjoy great food and great company for a great cause.
So how does it work? Well, the first thing to do is to set the date. The official month to hold the Big Dinner Party is March, so feel free to choose a day that suits you and your guests. Then, plan your menu. You can have anything, from a three course meal to a BBQ dinner. Inviting the guests is one of the most important things to do; so make sure you check out the website to download the official Big Dinner Party invites for you to personalise and send out. Remember to tell your dinner guests the reason behind the Big Dinner Party so they can join you in supporting the good cause. And of course, have fun.
There is a bunch of free stuff online to help you get the word out about your Big Dinner Party. One of the most effective ways is to create and promote your own online fundraising page. You can post up pictures prior to, during and after the Big Dinner Party, and also post up updates leading up to the dinner date. You can also find some tips online to help get some inspiration for your dinner party. Themes for dinner parties include 'Willy Wonka', 'Footy Fever' and 'Garden Party', to name a few.
All money raised from your dinner party will go to help aid the fight against MS. Your fundraising helps in various ways, including support services that ensure that the work that nurses, counselors, physiotherapists and many more do to help patients with MS continue. Also, funding raised helps MS research continue to find new and more effective treatment.
So to host your own Big Dinner Party, please register online. If for any reason you can't host your own or don't have the time to, you can still donate to your friends Big Dinner Party via the website.
