Hosting a party is a great way to raise money to support YES programs, have fun AND build community. We can promote them in the Online Auction or on our website, or both. And we’re here to support you to have a successful event!
Below are some ideas (of course you can customize as you wish) of parties that you could host for your friends or make some new friends in the community:
Play Ball for YES – Use memorial field and start the weekend off with the home run derby with kids and adults. We’ll help you promote organizing teams for a Saturday or Sunday tournament. You can provide food by doing a Costco run or getting a taco truck. Cost: $30/hitter for derby; $500/team or $50/player We will subsidize and help with sponsors for this event.
5th Grade Beach Bash – Invite your entire 5th class to Stinson for the day complete with beach games and a BBQ. Cost: $30/student
Silent Disco Party – This new trend could make a very fun and entertaining YES parent hosted party. Rent a space (log cabin, Sleepy Hollow Clubhouse, Fairfax Pavilion) and some wireless headphones that hook up to a DJ station of your choice. No one knows who is listening to which channel, which ensues hilarity. Cost: $75/attendee. YES will subsidize and help with sponsors to cover costs.
Bike and Brews – Arrange a mountain bike ride on our beautiful Mt. Tam and end up at a friend’s back yard for brews and a BBQ. Cost $50/attendee.
Community Wine Event – Host an evening cocktail party with wine tasting, music and appetizers. Cost $50/attendee
Yoga or Bar Method Class – Utilize space in one of our many exercise studios in town and grab your friends for a yoga or bar method class. Cost $25/attendee
Bunco – Do you know what this fun game is? If not, google it and then grab some friends and learn a new game while raising money for our schools. Cost $40/player
