Mother’s Day can be a fun way to celebrate Mom while raising funds for your organization with these great ideas for a raffle. Create a buzz in the community with some fun, creative prizes!
Consider grouping prizes by themes. A “Time for Me” prize package could include luscious fragrant soaps with a loofah mitt or luxuriously soft bath cloth, bath salts and gels, a sachet of fragrance and a CD of classical or jazz music. Or take Mom to the next level with a gift certificate to a popular local day spa for a wash and set, soothing facial, mani/pedi, massage and makeover … even a hot stone or Swedish massage.
Another theme could be “Best Night In” – think small bottles of wines donated by a local wine shop paired with cheeses, succulent fruit and fresh breads. Make arrangements ahead of time to ensure all items are properly stored and at their best when the winner collects the prize.
Your organization can also help give busy moms a boost with some practical prizes. You could offer prepaid cards from gas stations – a big help for soccer moms. And what mom doesn’t love to be treated to a delicious meal? Your prize offerings could include gift certificates to local restaurants. Gift certificates for services such as housecleaning, carpet cleaning – even babysitting – can make mom’s day.
So get creative and have fun for your Mother’s Day raffle!
