Those looking for kosher catering in Aventura need to look no further than Fresko Miami. This restaurant offers impressive menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Many of the best events today have a balance between formal dinner items, like steak or salmon, and casual smaller portion items such as pizza or tapas. Casual items don’t mean the event has to be low-key. Many casual items can be included on a high-end formal menu as well. Having a variety of items at your event will ensure everyone’s tastes are satisfied.
Some other factors to consider when planning a fundraising event include:
– A full bar and complete wine list
– A silent auction
– Black tie service
– Good follow up
A full bar and complete wine list will go a long way to making your guests comfortable at your event. It will also compliment the many food items offered. Be sure to include both common wines everyone is familiar with, as well as a few top-shelf wines to impress.
Silent auctions are a great way to raise money beyond selling tickets. Many businesses and individuals will donate items for the auction and many will bid more than retail pricing for certain unique items. It also provides for a friendly bidding competition and entertainment for the evening.
A key element in making a fundraising event successful is black tie service. People attending fundraisers love excellent service and having servers passing appetizers and meeting your guests’ needs will lead to guests feeling more generous. Having outstanding service will also build a good reputation for your future events.
Having a way to follow up with guests will do much to top your fundraising goals. While many give the night of the event, some will want to find out more details before deciding to contribute. These are donation leads worth reconnecting after the event. Plus, following up with all your guests with thank you notes or other correspondents will keep them interested in your cause and could lead to ongoing donations.
We at Kosher Miami Catering would love to work with you to address any of your needs for your next fundraising event. Our staff can work with you to create the perfect event to achieve your charity goals.
