MAKING IT FUN
"It's hard to say 'No' when he makes you a winner."
Raise $7,500 cash in two months from a town of 9,500 people!!! They said it couldn't be done, and it wasn't -- by them. It took Randall Tomaras and four high school students to make it happen. It was Randall's very first fundraiser.
The key to fundraising is to sell them value. Randall Tomaras did just that with the Great American Easter Egg Hunt. Plus, everyone had fun. The egg hunt generated over $12,000 in cash and gifts. Curious as to how that happened? Ask Randall Tomaras next time you see him.
That was the start of Randall's fund raising career. He helped athletes raise over $400,000 in a six year period while working with cultural exchange programs. He went on to raise over 17
million dollars for Children's hospitals in Moscow, and raised $370,000 in nine months for the Everett Centennial.
He has collected, over the past 20 years, some of the most successful fund raisers that groups have used. His fundraisers are not successful simply because of the ideas; Tomaras claims it is the fine points that make fundraisers work
Tomaras has also been an advisor to the corporate staff of the Children's Miracle Network Telethon, which is the largest single fund raising event in the world.
