The process of creating and decorating the luminaries is not only easy but also an event that is exciting, fun, and brings people together. Here are some simple yet effective steps to ensure that your fundraiser is a resounding success:

Step 2: Plan Ahead - Decide on how you want to theme your fundraiser, whether you want to include an auction and how many kits you'll need. By planning in advance, you'll be able to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that the event is a success.
Step 3: Promote the Event - Advertise the event well in advance and make sure to include the decorating and auction dates. Use photos and videos to showcase the event and generate interest. This is a great opportunity to bring the community together and create a sense of magic and wonder.
Step 4: Create a Magical Experience - Make sure to create a special atmosphere during the event by incorporating music, lighting, and other elements to make the experience truly magical.
Step 5: Capture Memories - Make sure to take plenty of photos and videos during the event to document the success and use them for future promotions. This is a great way to build on the success of the fundraiser and make it even bigger and better next year.
The luminary fundraiser is an event that is sure to leave a lasting impression on everyone involved.

Donna Parsons 03/22/2022Didn't know about this but once it was going we realized we had a winner on our hands! Thank you, David, for all your time and effort helping us get this started! I know this will now be our perennial favorite fundraiser! Several other classes in our lower school plan to jump on next year!

Merrill Barton 04/10/2021We just completed our first attempt to use luminaries as a fundraiser for cancer and it was very successful. It was not our biggest money maker project but we hope to grow this next year now that we have one under our belt. The key is to make sure and buy enough kits because there is a surge at the end of the event as more family members want to buy them. This event is very emotional and therapeutic to our group. Everyone was touched by the luminaries made.
Cameron Dyson 03/27/2021Hello Lindsay. We just completed our first attempt at a luminary fundraiser. Covid made it a little difficult for our auction because we wanted to do it in person but ended up on Zoom. It still came off okay and we look forward to doing another one of these next year, hopefully conducting a real life auction. I'm certain we should have bought more kits because most of our families wanted more than one luminary. Several wanted 3 decorated luminaries (because of grandparents). To raise the most money you want to plan early and get the word out to families with a photo so they understand what it is and tell them to ask other family members. I'm convinced for next year this will easily be our biggest fundraiser all year!
Lindsay McComas 03/23/2021I am an administrator at an independent school and look forward to trying luminaries for our spring fundraiser. I am hoping we spread this throughout our lower school. If you have tried this project, can you please post your experiences? I would like to know a little more about what to expect. Thank you.
