Close your eyes. Imagine this: it’s Friday night. It’s a little bit chilly out. You’ve got your teams sweatshirt on, you’re snuggled in the bleachers next to your family with a bag of popcorn and hot chocolate in your hands. Your football team just took the field for game. They are all lined up for the kick off. Can you feel the excitement? The anticipation of what’s going to happen during the game and how it will all turn out. The band is playing the fight song and the cheerleaders are flipping around. It’s Kick Off Time!
When you start a fundraiser- you want to create that excitement in your sellers. You want the anticipation of how the fundraiser is going to go- of course you are going to win! Doing a “KICK OFF” is a great way to get your sellers excited about their upcoming sale. There are lots of options for having a successful one- and they all depend on you! While the key points are the same for all kick offs, how you go about doing it is all about you and your group!
Key points to address in a kick off are: Products and Cost, Selling Dates, Delivery and PRIZES! Here are some ideas to guide you to pick your favorite way to do a kick off!
- Large Assembly!! Get everyone together and talk about the upcoming fundraiser. This is a great way to get all the info out at once and get everyone excited.
- Small Groups- go class to class and do a kick off presentation!
- Parent Meeting- this is perfect for sports teams or travel trips. Everyone is there to get information, what a great time to kick off your sale!
- Video!! Not sure you can swing any of the above idea? Ask your Savory Foods Rep for the KICK OFF VIDEO!! Just play it for your sellers and pass out their brochures. We’ve done the hard work for you!
Kick off’s are great. They get you excited, they get your sellers excited. What a fun way to get your sale going.
