Ladies' 80s night
Raise PTA funds and give mums an excuse to let their
hair down with a fabulous ladies' 80s night! This is how Laura
Macfarlane, PTA Secretary at St Flannans Primary in Glasgow turned
her's into a hit...
'Our ladies' 80s night was a great success, getting mums to
socialise. We sold tickets for £3 and I produced all the flyers,
tickets, and decorations myself to keep costs down. Local
businesses donated raffle prizes. We also had a prize for the
best-dressed lady as everyone made a huge effort with their
outfits. I had a grid of 80s songs, which I sold for £1. The person
whose song was picked won a prize and their song was played. We
also sold glowsticks, which proved really popular.
The event was held on a Friday night from 7-11pm. The DJ cost
£100, room hire was £39 and I also spent £50 on glowsticks. It was
a bring-your-own-booze event - we simply provided plastic
cups. There was very little outlay otherwise. Although it was
mainly for mums, we had a real mix of age groups with mums,
sisters, aunts and grans - around 100 attended. We raised well
over £600. It was a fantastic night; even the DJ commented that
there was a really good atmosphere!'
