The Windham Endowment for Community Advancement is a young community foundation doing great works for the community of Windham NH. They were in need of a vehicle for increasing visibility and engaging the local public. This fundraising event made use of local talent, a historic landmark and provided exceptional entertainment to those in attendance.
The event had to be a unique offering in the community. Although a highly supportive group overall, the citizens of the Windham were already saturated with a host of typical fundraising offerings. Most were held at the only functional event center in town, with a similar format and list of activities. When considering the target audience, the desire for high impact and time of year, we developed a plan.
The plan resulted in a one-of-a-kind evening that included a Castle, murder mystery dinner, live entertainment, and valuable extras (such as limousine service and complimentary wine with dinner).
