Movie Fundraisers

A movie night is a flexible fundraiser that can be tailored to meet your club’s needs. Very simply, the plan is to encourage attendees to watch a movie together and utilise the gathering to raise funds for your club. A club can aim to make money off the movie tickets, the food and catering or upon raffle tickets sold on the night.
