Why do it?

Putting on a music event or charity ball is a great way to bring people together to raise money for people affected by dementia.

Although it may seem like a daunting challenge, it's much easier than you think and very rewarding. Plus, we're here to help you every step of the way. 

The possibilities are endless and you're only limited by your imagination - and budget! Although it's very important to be realistic with what you can afford, it doesn't mean you can't think big.

Your fundraising will help us to continue our vital work to support people living with dementia and those who care for them.

Top tips for hosting a music event

  • Pick an event type. What sort of event do you wan to host? Do you want a theme? Do you also want to serve food and drinks, or host a raffle or an auction? Answering these questions first will help you plan your event.
  • Source a venue. It's very important to think about this early as it will have an impact on other aspects of your event, such as the number of guests you can invite and the time and date.
  • Decide on an audience. Would you like to hold it for friends and family, club members or business contacts? Or maybe you'd like to open it out to the general public?
  • Spread the word! Ask your local fundraiser for materials like banners and posters to highlight the good cause you are helping at the event. You could also create flyers and leaflets. Be sure to request a materials event form to order different Alzheimer's Society resources.
