5 Tips for Planning a Bull Roast

A bull roast is the perfect fundraising opportunity. Whether you want to raise money for your school’s PTA or for a local health organization, a bull roast is sure to attract plenty of guests so that you will meet or even exceed your fundraising goals. Unfortunately, planning a bull roast can get complicated. After all, there are many details that must be attended to. However, it doesn’t have to be too much of a headache so long as you’re armed with a little know-how. Learn what you need to know in today’s blog, below.

Cover all five bases of a bull roast

A common misconception is that a bull roast is just like a pig roast, but that’s not the case. A bull roast is a casual-attire formal dinner that brings people from the community together and where cuts of meat are served for the main course.

While a bull roast is all about the food, there are four other areas that should be considered:

  • Entertainment. What will your guests do when they are not busy eating? Will you hire a live band or DJ to provide music? How will you entice guests to come?

  • Raffles. Raffles are a great way to raise extra money, but you’ll need to secure prizes so that guests will be encouraged to buy tickets. You could enlist the help of friends and family to make prizes or you can approach local businesses to make donations.

  • Time. You’ll need to give yourself plenty of time to plan and pull off a bull roast, so you should begin thinking through the logistical details at least 6 months in advance. This will give you time to secure the next consideration:

  • Location. This is one of the most important factors to consider as it can truly make or break your event. The number of guests you are planning on inviting will be a factor on your decision as you will need to find a location that can hold your desired number of guests.

  • Communication. Bull roasts are complicated, so you’ll need to maintain open communication with all stakeholders in the event, including any people who are helping with planning as well as your venue coordinator.
