Host an Event

With a very small staff, Special Love is restricted in the number of fundraising events it can manage. But with your help, the sky’s the limit!

Throughout the year, organizations “adopt” Special Love as the beneficiary of some incredible fundraisers – from golf tournaments to music festivals to poker runs. Several of these organizations have helped us for more than two decades.

Getting Started

The possibilities are endless when it comes to events!  Large or small, hosting a fundraiser is not only rewarding, but a great way to meet people while helping to provide a community of support for children with cancer, and their families.  So let your imagination run wild!

1. Contact us to receive a copy of our Beneficiary Event Guidelines.

2. Carefully review the guidelines, complete and return.

3. Once approved by Special Love, a staff member will work with you to provide whatever materials and guidance needed.

Examples of Beneficiary Events

Start a Campaign

Celebrate a birthday or special occasion, or honor a loved one by creating a fundraising page on a social media platform such as Facebook or GoFundMe, then share the fundraising page with you family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

Events with Colleagues or Friends

Events don’t have to be large to make an impact in the life of a child with cancer.   So do what you can manage, and grow from there.   Event ideas:

  • Bake Sale
  • Happy Hour or Cocktail Party
  • Workplace Events, such as “Wear Jeans Day for Donation”
  • Craft Fair
  • Motorcycle Poker Runs
  • Miniature Golf Tournaments
  • Golf Tournaments
  • Dinner Dance
