Ronald Mcdonald House Charities - RMHC WA Ball 2021

WHO

Ronald Mcdonald House Charities Western Australia aims to support seriously ill children by providing a range of programs to help families stay together and close to the care they need.

WHAT

The RMHC WA Ball brought together 1,052 guests that included sponsors, licensees and corporate partners to raise crucial funds for the charity’s work. It had been a long time since supporters were able to come together in person, so there was understandable anticipation for the occasion!

HOW

RMHC WA built momentum for the Saturday of their event by opening their silent auction six days prior through the Givergy platform. Donors had bought tables at staggered prices then on the night enjoyed dinner, entertainment and keynote speeches. Descriptions of auction items from the night’s live auction hung like artwork in the ballroom lobby and on top of each table sat QR codes that led donors directly to the pledge option within our fundraising platform.

Target:
$100,000

Raised:
$110,000

RESULT

Historically the silent auction at this event raised around $100,000 but in 2021 over $110,000 was achieved! On the first two days alone the silent auction raised over $20,000 and by going online pre-event it added an extra layer of engagement between RMHC and their donors.

TOP TIP

“Having the QR code linking directly to our Givergy fundraising site certainly helped as it meant that guests could do everything from their seat. Our audience of over 50’s found the technology simple to use and that definitely made the whole giving experience more seamless.”

“Using Givergy went really really well for us, the technology is super simple to use and they made the run-up to the event feel easy.”
