Womenade for STH began with women and men hosting parties in their homes to bring together friends and family while raising funds and awareness for Sojourner Truth House.
Even though our Week of Womenade 2021 is over, you can still host a party to help!
To help you set up your party, we have created four easy steps.
Step 1: Decide what kind of party you want to throw!
Over the years, we have found that it’s easiest when you decide what kind of party you want to throw. Some have held catered parties, desserts only, cocktail parties, outdoor barbeques, and more. Kid-friendly party ideas can be pizza parties or Make-Your-Own Sundae parties. Any social gathering can raise money for those in need, no matter how small, informal, or simple.
Some catering options for you:
T’s Cupcakes n’ Treats, (219) 649-1075
The Flock Dining, Inc, (219) 649-1075
TLC Catering, (219) 648-2951
Step 2: Figure out what you need to throw your party.
Once you know what kind of party you want to throw, it is time to start planning. Remember to keep it simple and keep your overhead low. This way, you can tell your guests that every penny they give will go to Sojourner Truth House.
Womenade for STH has made it easy for anyone to collect funds using our online fundraising pages and teams. Start by creating your account below to begin raising funds. Our Womenade video is also ready to go on our website and YouTube channel to help you show what Sojourner Truth House is all about. Also available are brochures for pick-up at our office for your guests.
Step 3: Invite your guests!
Invite those who you think will want to attend your party. Make your ask personal and explain to your guests why you have chosen to raise funds and awareness of Sojourner Truth House. Discuss how those attending can donate. If someone cannot attend, invite them to your online fundraising page.
Step 4: Have your party!
While your guests are having a great evening, offer them information about where their contributions are going, show them the Womenade video, and collect their contact information. We want to thank all of our donors! Collecting their information helps us keep everyone up-to-date with Sojourner Truth House.
Tip: Set up a computer at the event for people to sit down and make their online donations.
