Planning a Benefit for a Cancer Patient

If your friend or relative was recently diagnosed with cancer, it can be a physical, emotional, and financial difficultly for everyone they know. Throwing benefits are a great way to offer financial help for cancer patients. Here’s how you can plan a benefit to ease the financial burden of your loved one suffering from cancer.

Create a Plan

First, gather a small group of people to help plan the event. There are many great fundraising ideas for cancer patients so within the group decide what kind of benefit to host, such as silent auctions, spaghetti dinners, or bowling. Be sure to pick something fun and uplifting to get the community involved and boost the patient’s morale. Next, pick a location and time and give yourself at least a month in advance to plan. Some places like schools, churches, and fire halls will donate their facilities for free, so be sure to pick a facility that best fits the situation.

Stick to Your Budget

Next, estimate the cost of the supplies and decide on admission price. Some people just ask for donations at the door while others provide a set price. Offering a 50/50 raffle is another great way to raise funds if a set door price isn’t desirable. You can also save costs by asking for donations from local businesses, such as food, auction items, raffle items, utensils, or decorations. Be sure to collect the contact info of all donors, including those at the event, so you can send out “thank you” notes to show your appreciation.

Spread the Word

Finally, be sure to advertise around town and contact local media to spread awareness. The publicity will attract attention, support, and possible donations down the line. All in all, charity benefits are one of the easiest ways to offer financial help for cancer patients.
