Fundraisers are a popular event for many companies and organizations but can prove to be a tricky endeavor. To ensure success, you will need a distinctive and unique idea that gets donors excited. One way to make your next fundraising event stand out is by hosting it on a spectacular yacht, offering guests a once in a lifetime opportunity to give to a cause they love while also having an unforgettable experience. Our event planners can share countless company fundraising yacht event ideas with you and help you choose which one of our outstanding vessels will best accommodate your function. Charter One has the ultimate party yacht rentals West Palm Beach – and the entire South Florida area – has to offer.
If you envision a large fundraising gala, let us introduce you to our truly magnificent yacht, The Grand Floridian. Spanning over 18,000 square feet and adorned with the finest décor, guests will have plenty of room to roam. This breathtaking vessel can comfortably hold up to 550 of your closest friends and family or business associates. In addition, there is formal seating for up to 240 guests on one deck. Equipped with the latest technology and a state of the art media center to help you introduce your fundraiser to your guests, this brilliant yacht is the perfect partner for hosting a successful company fundraising yacht event.
Perhaps a smaller fundraising celebration is on your wish list but you aren’t quite sure where it should be hosted. Well, we have your ideal solution…The Summer Wind. Picture the ultimate in sophistication and class and you can envision this incredible yacht that was once the vacationing vessel for the Bacardi Family. Perfect for hosting under 65 guests, this yacht proves that smaller fundraising functions can be just as glorious and enjoyable (and successful) as the larger ones!
Once you have decided which party yacht rentals may serve as your fundraising host, it is time to start planning. Here are a few of our staff members’ favorite company fundraising yacht event ideas:
- Incorporate the holidays – For many corporations or brands, a holiday party is a must-have event, so why not tie the holiday celebration around your fundraiser. In addition, certain holidays such as Christmas, tend to put people in the giving mood. You can do a formal gala-type event with a private auction, or a more casual luncheon depending on your guest list. Either way, the happiness of the holidays and the beauty of sailing along the ocean blue on a corporate yacht charter is a great combination to motivate donors.
- Play that tune – Entertainment and great music is always needed at an event, but what if it is part of your fundraising event? Adding a karaoke fundraiser is always a fun times for guests. Pick people randomly to sing a song of your choosing. If they decline, they have to donate a certain amount of money to your cause…or audience members can put money up to entice the person to get up on stage and belt out a tune. Either way, you can gather up a good amount of funds and the partygoers will have a hoot of a time!
- Ahoy, Matey – Combine one of our majestic yachts and the stunning waters of South Florida with an all out costume pirate party. This type of fundraiser is especially “fun” around Halloween. People purchase tickets to attend this Talk Like a Pirate Day celebration (with money accumulated going to your fundraiser). Swashbucklers will don their best pirate gear and communicate in a pirate voice, and maybe even win a prize or two. Décor can include old treasure chests where people can donate even more money. By turning your fundraiser yacht event into an exciting and unique celebration, guests are more likely to attend and help out a special cause.
