Project Description

Unique Fundraising Item

OBJECTIVE:

CREATIVE is commonly asked for donation items for silent auctions or fundraisers. Rather than provide a standard gift, we love creating eye-opening or popular products that also develop interest or excitement. Our team had an idea to combine two of our city’s favorites hobbies… drinking & hockey.

STRATEGY:

We sourced a vendor that was willing to help us design and build a hockey stick, which would allow us to attach and remove three SHOT glasses. We located one that had already built skis and snowboards with shot glass holders, never a hockey stick, but this was clearly in their wheelhouse! This vendor had the resources, creativity and planning to assist us in our unique design and build. A prototype was created and delivered! Only minor adjustments were required for us to move forward.

RESULTS:

This Slap SHOT hockey stick has raised thousands of dollars. The idea to include 3 people taking a shot ALL AT THE SAME TIME was hugely successful. This item continues to be a popular product to bid on or raffle for. A repeat order has already been made.
