Don’t Take Our Word For It…

Here’s What A Couple Howard County Principals Had To Say:

John Birus | Principal, Thunder Hill Elementary School

Thanks to our Gold Party Event fundraiser at Thunder Hill Elementary, we were able to fund our annual Arts Integration Day. The proceeds generated for our school were well beyond our expectations. The event was easy to plan and a great way for both parents and staff members to contribute to our school without the hassle of traditional fund raising programs. Additionally the staff from Gold Party Events were friendly and efficient!

Jonathan Davis | Principal, Bollman Bridge Elementary School

In three small events, we earned a significant amount of money that we chose to use to send our teachers to conferences. In three short afternoons, we earned enough money to send 10 teachers to some nice local conferences.

Fundraiser FAQ’s

We buy old, unwanted gold and silver jewelry. This includes everything from class rings, necklaces, watches and charms to flat ware and silver coins, too. Broken items and outdated styles are some of the most common pieces that we purchase during our fundraisers.

We buy from you, your friends, your family, and your supporters. Our charity fundraisers tend to work best when you pick a couple of dates to host an event – in conjunction with one of your charity’s existing events is ideal. Promote our presence at your event to your supporters and ask them to the participate and to spread the word. Anyone can support your fundraiser and it doesn’t cost them anything.

Anyone who sells an old item to us during your fundraiser gets a competitive market rate for their unwanted item. AND NO MONEY IS TAKEN OUT OF YOUR SUPPORTERS’ POCKETS OR PAYOUTS.

What Our Other Fundraisers Are Saying

Donna Kasoff organized the fundraiser and had this to say…

Temple Isaiah Fundraiser with Donna Kasoff

“When I learned about the Gold Party Event fundraiser, I was sold. This idea was a win-win: Earn cash for yourself and Gold Party Event will donate to your charity…a no brainer for me.

I brought this idea to my synagogue and, although people loved the idea, there were many skeptics. It sounded too good to be true.

When the guests at my first party received their cash, they were amazed and, from their success stories, the parties grew. Within 30 days, we earned over $6,600 for our synagogue! In our last fundraiser at the synagogue, it took 700 man hours to raise that amount of money. This was the easiest fundraiser I have ever been a part of and the most lucrative for the effort. Staci and Tara were wonderful to work with and I now call them my friends. I plan on having another fundraiser at my synagogue in the fall. Thank you Gold Party Event!”
