3 Ways to make Killer Cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw
Social season is upon us! Many people are wondering whether it’s beneficial to have a 50/50 at their Social or not.
In case you’re wondering, a 50/50 draw is when you ask people to buy tickets for a chance to win 50% of the money raised for the draw... and of course you (Social Host) get the other 50%. 50/50 draws are actually very beneficial because the Social Host doesn’t have to spend a dime (besides on the roll of tickets) and donated prizes aren’t needed, thus you can make more money from prizes from the Silent Auction.
Here are the 3 Ways to Make Killer Cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw:
The first way you can make killer cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw is to have a projector & screen or 32 inch TV with a running 50/50 total to entice people to buy tickets. Visuals always capture a larger audience and by having a visual of how much cash you could win really get’s people excited. This is especially great for those people who don't want to seem nosey or who are just to shy to ask where the 50/50 is sitting at. When your guests SEE how much they could win, it get’s them all excited and entices them to buy, buy, buy!!!
2. Ca$h Cube
Another way to make killer cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw is to rent a Ca$h Cube. Instead of the typical 50/50 draw, get something that engages your guests and put more money in your pocket. Sell tickets for entering the ca$h cube and draw a winner. The winner gets a chance to grab at the money that was raised from ticket sales. 30 seconds in the cube is enough to thrill the winner and excite all onlookers. However much money is grabbed goes to the winner, the rest to you. Watch both the excitement and the jackpot grow as the guests dig into their pockets for a chance to get in the cash cube! On average when the cash cube is used at socials the Social Hosts generally pull in anywhere from $500-$900 and the winner generally gets less than 50% but what they really win is an amazing time inside the cash cube which is well worth the excitement.

3. Contests: Girls vs. Boys
The third and final way to make killer cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw is to have a contest between Wedding Party Members (Girls vs. Boys) to add excitement. By having a contest, it really excites and pushes the Wedding Party to sell those 50/50 tickets, and fast!! If you just have someone sitting in the corner selling 50/50 tickets, people aren’t normally inclined to get out of their seats or to get off the dance floor to go by 50/50 tickets. You must go to the people and ask! We were always told in school that if we don’t ask for help, we may never get it. So ASK! Also, if you approach them with a “I need to Win” attitude, it really pushes people to buy, especially if THEY want you to win. People love taking sides.
So there we have it... 3 Ways to Make Killer Cash on your 50/50 Wedding Social Draw.
