The Fundraiser: 2nd Annual UnMask Cancer Fundraiser at District Hall
The Dana-Farber Special Events Team and the UnMask Cancer Committee set out to provide a modern and unique fundraising experience for its guests in order to create an unforgettable event, a lasting relationship with the event’s attendees, and a hefty donation to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. With an audience of young professionals, the biggest challenge was to find a unique way to engage donors and get them excited about donating to a great cause.
Realizing the importance of providing attendees with a modern and exciting way to submit donations at their event, the committee partnered with Accelevents to facilitate a mobile silent auction and raffle. Combined with the event’s innovative and modern themes, decor, and entertainment, the Accelevents platform aimed to provide the UnMask Cancer team with a significant boost in proceeds.
