Station Event

  • Hello and thanks in advance for any input you can give. I am trying to set up an event to profit the local school districts. I was thinking of a video game tournament, $5 entry and all proceeds benefiting the school system. I was wondering how I would get the funding to put this together, we are a small station and are hoping to get sponsorships. We also will need prizes and was wondering if anybody had a contact with any corporate pr people who could help with donations. We normally get gift cards to local restaurants, not exactly the prizes we would want for this.  I want to benefit the schools first and foremost, but I would like our station to be able to get some sales out of this as well. Any information or ideas you can send would be great. I have done event planning within my fraternity, but this is at a different level and could use some help.
