CATERING FOR NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS!
How to Choose a Philadelphia Caterer for Your Fundraiser!
An experienced Philadelphia Fundraiser Caterer can definitely make all the difference in the success of your Philly fundraiser or charity event! When picking a Philadelphia caterer for fundraising here are some things to look for. First off if you have never hired or dined with the caterer ask for references then call them and listen to what their customers have to say about them! It is a good idea to request to visit an event while the caterer is actually serving so you can see the caterer in action.
Remember, when you choose to go with a no-name caterer you may save some money in the short run but with a well-established brand name Caterer the Caterer’s name adds to the publicity buzz surrounding your event! You can get more bookings and a lot more free press coverage if you announce your fundraiser is being catered by one of the celebrity caterers who is in vogue at the moment!
The food for a fundraiser has to look appetizing, smell pleasant and be presented and served up in an appealing perfectly timed manner! The colors of the food should coordinate with the other dishes being served or displayed together and must match the flowers, décor and decorations that represent the galas theme. The tastes must complement each other building satisfaction with each new stage! Courses meld from one to the next like a fine orchestrated concerto!
Everything should be done up first class when you are trying to attract affluent guests to your fundraiser. Getting big donations and significant support for the cause you are championing requires a professional ambiance! Getting a celebrity to indorse your cause can be invaluable!
Attracting and pleasing upper class guests are your main goals when you are going after big donations. Getting upper class society to accept you and your cause will help you recruit more supporters and gain more backing from their often closed door communities. These people talk so if you are planning more money raising functions in the future you have to impress them! Plan something memorable!
Philadelphia Fundraiser Caterers are not judged by the taste of their culinary menus alone. For a Philadelphia Caterer to get a five star review the company must do much more than just cook great tasting, innovative and mouthwatering delicacies with a twist. The catering business in Philadelphia is very competitive! The Philadelphia Catering customer is suave! The people who Attend fundraisers are educated, sophisticated leaders of their communities. Donators to charities have many choices for which they can choose to lend their support. All kinds of organizations are vying for their money. Everyone involved in your fundraiser event has to be on their best behavior.
Often, people donate to and support causes that they feel are being run by competent trust worthy people. You have to sell yourself as well as your whole organization not only the cause itself.
Service at a fundraiser has to be professional and attentive, impeccable at all times! The atmosphere has to be fun. Hot food needs to stay hot, cold food chilled! Ingredients used should be the freshest and of the best quality available. Plate presentation is truly an art that can make a world of difference to the ambiance of an affair!
Bear in mind the better time the guests have the more money they are likely to contribute!
Event Etiquette that matches the specific type of event and your guests’ personalities has to be adhered to consistently! Philadelphia Fundraiser Catering success comes down to attending to the small details, caring, being creative, the ability to think and solve problems on the fly and the willingness to go that extra mile for one’s clients!
