Are you interested in supporting the work of OBOS? Do you like to host parties? Then throw a house party!
But wait, what’s a house party?
A house party is simply that — a party. A host (or hosts) invites her friends to her home with the purpose of educating them about the work of OBOS. The house party sets up a cordial atmosphere where people can learn about the work we do, ask questions, get some personal attention, and contribute to the organization.
The basic steps to each party are:
- Deciding to host
- Preparing a guest list
- Inviting attendees
- Planning the evening, particularly the pitch
- Follow up and thank
