Each one of my interviews with a member of the Business Golf Country Club just gets that much more interesting. Dave Bisbee has been a close friend and my business partner for a few years now and it never ceases to amaze me with the things he comes up with that matches EXACTLY my direction in life and business.
Following is the complete interview I had with Dave on this outstanding charity fundraiser along with the blog just posted over on the ClamBake Cafe blog site. Hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed making it. Scot
ClamBake Cafe interview with Dave Bisbee on what the Give Through Golf program is all about.
When it comes to fundraiser for a charity golf tournament I have not found one as simple as the Give Through Golf Program.
Recently, I interviewed BGCC member Dave Bisbee, Golf Professional and a Principle of Give Through Golf, to get the word straight from the mouth of one of the creators of this very innovative virtual ball drop fundraiser.
Really Is That Simple
Today’s busy lifestyle is pushing everyone towards the use of technology to help solve problems and over come challenges. The non-profit charity fundraising world is no exception. In this tough economy everyone is watching how and where their funds are being spent. Fortunately, there are still millions of people who enjoy supporting worthy causes. The downside is finding these people and once they are found offering them a quick easy way to make a donation to a charity.
The Give Through Golf Virtual Ball Drop concept is really pretty simple.
- A donor can go to the Charity’s web-page created by GTG,
- Make a donation of $20
- Receive a number that represents one Golf Ball.
- That Ball with the number is placed in the drawing list with other donors who have made a donation.
- On a specific day chosen by the charity fundraising organization the fundraising is cut off.
- The drawing for the prize winner is made during a very well produced and entertaining animated presentation played out as a Ball Drop done from a virtual helicopter.
- The third party validated algorithm program selection of the winner is made by the computer and displayed on the screen for all viewers to see.
The excitement is built from the short, rather entertaining, animated video program. Donors and supporters can watch the presentation from the Charity Golf Tournament (or whatever event the charity chose to organize) or in the comfort of their home or office on their desk top or lap top computer. This allows thousands of donors to be involved in the excitement created around the virtual ball drop.
The fundraising from the Give Through Golf Virtual Ball Drop really is that easy.
Give Through Golf has partnered with Lexus and is now able to offer a Car to the winner for certain ball drop packages. They also can help the charity organization with securing other wonderful prizes to give away to the winners.
