What Happens When Bad Weather Threatens Your Special Event?
Weather dependent fundraising special events can be stressful for organizers, but there are some ways to ensure successful management.
1). Always have a rain or snow backup plan. Hoping for good weather is not enough. Know the location and plan for inclement weather.
2). Include the location or plan for bad weather on the invitation or flyer. Or, indicate this is a rain or shine event.
3). Communicate! Blast social media and websites with weather updates. Even posting a time at which you will make a final weather determination can be helpful as people plan and adjust their day.
4). Make it fun. We cannot control the weather so embrace it. More than anything people want to support your non profit organization and the event is just a fun way of doing that.
