FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN HIRING ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR CHARITY FUNDRAISER
Organising a charity fundraising event generally takes months of planning. Corporate donors and other benefactors will be present and they’ll expect a good balance between the speeches and the entertainment.
In this day and age, too many speeches will bore the audience and may result in a loss of focus and attention during the fundraiser. The event needs to be organised in such a way that the overall message is clearly passed on and felt and even celebrated. Booking quality event entertainment is the key in making sure the core messages are complemented well by the entertainment provided for the ‘fun side’ of any fundraising event.
Of course, professional entertainers, whether it be musical theatre acts, Motown acts or singers for hire should be there to provide a memorable experience and keep the guests from getting bored. So, what points should the fundraising event manager consider when hiring the entertainment for any charity event? As Australia’s leading entertainment agency, we’ve listed a few tips below.
Professional entertainers are a must
Choose experienced and professional entertainers who can handle the crowd. What better way to guarantee that you, the event planner, gets the entertainment you ask for than hiring experienced party entertainers for hire?
Opt for ‘quality’ acts
This is the most important and should be on top of your list. It’s potentially disastrous to hire party entertainers who are cheap. You risk offering your audience an underwhelming experience. Remember that quality corporate party entertainment can transform even the most boring program to a wonderful one.
How much is your budget for your party entertainment? If you want world-class performances, you can contact companies like Lovegrove Entertainment and let them know about your budget and their team will gladly accommodate you with an act that fits the price range.
This point is less concerned about the performers, but more on the event itself. The objective here is to keep the audience from getting bored and direct their attention to the event at hand. Whilst ‘too much entertainment’ can never really be a bad thing you still need to juggle the ratio of speeches/presentation to entertainment and of course time to chat or network.
What kind of performances do you want for your event? Good fundraising event entertainment should be entertaining but still in line with whatever the theme may be.

As mentioned above, organising a fundraising or charity event event can be complicated and laborious. But remember that the key to everything is balance.

After all balance, elegance, and quality are the keys to a successful event.
