The “Send a Kid to Camp” program as part of the Annual Black Tie Fundraiser is a special initiative aimed at providing scholarships to autistic children to attend summer camp. Here’s a detailed description of how this program operates within the context of the fundraiser:

1. Fundraiser Planning: The Annual Black Tie Fundraiser is organized as a high-profile event to raise funds for various initiatives, including the “Send a Kid to Camp” program. The fundraiser may include elements such as a gala dinner, silent auction, live entertainment, keynote speakers, and other activities to attract attendees and generate donations.


2. Promotion and Ticket Sales: Leading up to the fundraiser, the organization promotes the event through various channels such as social media, email newsletters, press releases, and partnerships with local businesses and media outlets. Tickets to the fundraiser are sold to individuals, corporations, and community organizations who wish to support the cause.


3. Designated Fundraising Activities: Within the Annual Black Tie Fundraiser, specific fundraising activities are designated to support the “Send a Kid to Camp” program. For example, a portion of the ticket sales, donations, auction proceeds, or sponsorships may be earmarked for providing scholarships to autistic children to attend summer camp.


 4. Appeals and Presentations: During the fundraiser, presentations and appeals are made to highlight the importance of the “Send a Kid to Camp” program and encourage attendees to contribute. Personal stories, testimonials, and video presentations may be shared to illustrate the impact of scholarships on the lives of autistic children and their families.

5. Donation Opportunities: Attendees are provided with various opportunities to donate to the “Send a Kid to Camp” program throughout the fundraiser. This may include live pledge drives, donation stations, mobile fundraising platforms, or designated fundraising representatives circulating among the guests.


6. Recognition and Appreciation: Donors who contribute to the “Send a Kid to Camp” program are recognized and appreciated for their generosity during the fundraiser. This may include acknowledgments during speeches, on event signage, in printed materials, or through personalized thank-you notes and follow-up communications after the event.


7.Post-Fundraiser Follow-Up: After the fundraiser, the organization follows up with donors to provide updates on the amount raised for the “Send a Kid to Camp” program and how their contributions are making a difference. Scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants based on predetermined criteria, and families are notified of their child’s scholarship award.

By integrating the “Send a Kid to Camp” program into the Annual Black Tie Fundraiser, the organization maximizes its fundraising efforts to provide meaningful opportunities for autistic children to participate in summer camp experiences that promote socialization, skill-building, and personal development.
