How to raise extra money on the night
Although ticket selling is a great start, take your fundraising to the next level by offering additional fun activities on the night to help your charity even further!
Here are a few charity fundraising ideas to help you on your way…
- Raffle: Prior to the event, purchase an array of small gifts and treats for your guests to be in with the chance of winning through buying raffle tickets.
- Silent Auction: Showcase a few exclusive or larger items for your guests to auction for.
- Sponsor the race: Offer the guests the opportunity to sponsor one (or more) of the races – the race can even be named after them!
- Hold extra race-themed competitions within the group – for example, the overall quickest greyhound and overall slowest.
- Have donation buckets (or similar collections) on your tables.
What’s more, our Owlerton team are always more than happy to contribute prizes and treats towards your raffle – Don’t hesitate to ask us!

Here are some of the FAQs about charity fundraising nights at Owlerton…
Does Owlerton provide a host for my fundraising event?
We recommend nominating a leader from your group to host the evening, as we do not provide one. However, if your ticket option is in the Panorama Restaurant or VIP Boxes, Owlerton’s waiting staff are present to answer any queries you may have.
Do you have a dress code?
Smart/casual is our suggested dress code. Though, you may want to incorporate this as one of your fundraising tactics, e.g. a best-dressed competition.
