This year, take your #Movember fundraising event to the next level! #Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers, such as prostate cancer. Many charity events are hosted during this time of the year, and the goal is to change the face of men’s health.

 

When planning for such an important fundraising event, who doesn’t love a little fresh air? Breathe new positive energy by selecting an outdoor venue. Dubai is lucky enough to have the perfect weather for an outdoor event during the spring, summer, early autumn, and even in November where you can capture the delightful weather, long days, and relaxing nature of the outdoors by taking your attendees beyond the standard four walls.

 

Choosing a site for such an important fundraising event can be the most difficult part of the whole planning process. When planning for an outdoor fundraising event, here are things to consider:

 

• What are your objectives for the event? Knowing your agenda helps set the tone for the type of location, décor, and other amenities needed.

 

• What type of budget are you working within? There are many environments that you can make use of in an outdoor setting, such as pavilions, tents, gazebos, athletic facilities, picnic areas, patios, rooftop decks, and more. Explore your options to see if cost efficiencies can be found while still achieving the same result.

 

• Are restrooms, parking, guest rooms, and other amenities located within a comfortable distance from your fundraising event? Pick a suitable location to meet the needs of your guests. If guests must move from one location to another, are there shuttles or other transit options available?

 

• What is the seasonal weather like in the region? Are you working in a covered space, such as a pavilion, or with an open area such as a tennis court or golf course? Mother Nature can be unpredictable. If you are working with an open area, it may be possible to arrange for a tent or other back-up facilities in case there is inclement weather.

 

• How will your menu support the theme or objectives of your fundraising event? If you’d like people to be able to mingle easily, finger foods may be the best option. Or, if you’d like a more formal vibe, it’s possible to create an elegant dinner setting with three-course meal within a partially enclosed or semi-covered space.

 

In conclusion, one of the biggest benefits of an outdoor fundraising event is the energy and freshness it lends your guests. Open-air venues can help take your event outside the box by keeping people active and social. Be creative in highlighting the character of the outdoor setting and you can create a truly impactful #Movember fundraising event.
