Since its inception fourteen years ago, the Gladiators Fundraiser program has raised over $700,000 for local schools, youth athletic organizations and charities. The Gladiators have worked with hundreds of local schools, charities and civic organizations to build a night of fun that also raises money.
Here’s how it works...first, we sit with you and pick out a game that works best for your organization. Then, we take our normally priced $24.00 Premium Level Ticket and we allow your cause to sell it for $15.00 to whoever you want. Of course parents, families and friends are the main target, but we’ve had organizations take it to the streets as well. For every ticket that you sell, you get to keep the amount above $10.00 (minus applicable taxes.)
What makes it different from other more traditional fundraisers is that the family that purchases the tickets wins as well. Think about it...the ticket buyer wins because they get a discounted ticket to a fun family night out and they raise money for a cause that is dear to them. The school, charity or civic organization wins because they get to provide a great deal on a great night of fun AND raise money in the process.
There are three ways a fundraiser can be handled:
1. Your organization distributes information and promotes the night and then collects all of the orders. A Gladiators staff member will work with you to distribute the tickets.
2. Your organization distributes information and promotes the night. Your supporters order tickets securely online via a customized Special Offer Code created for your group. We fill the orders and email each individual customer's tickets directly to them in advance of the game night.
3. Your organization purchases a block of Fundraising Vouchers (minimum commitment required of 100 vouchers) and sells them to supporters. The vouchers are good for any Gladiators 2017-2018 regular season home game and can be redeemed at the arena box office in advance, or on the night of, the game.
It all adds up to this – a great opportunity to get the families and friends of your organization involved in a fun filled night of great Gladiators hockey and family entertainment!
