Fundraising events are crucial for any non-profit organization. They are terrific for raising awareness of your mission, building support within your community, and of course, to increase donations. Fundraisers are an excellent way for companies to raise money for charities and causes. However, because a lot of planning is involved, executing a successful fundraiser may seem like a daunting task.
The first important step is finding the perfect venue. The proper venue will set the ambiance and enhance the atmosphere of your event. That’s why so many organizations have chosen Skyline Cruises to host their fundraising events.
Skyline Cruises Will Create a Memorable Fundraiser
We have been helping groups put together fundraisers for more than 20 years, and we will work with you to bring your organization’s vision to life. Be it a church group, political group, corporation, or charitable organization, we can handle any kind of fundraiser at Skyline Cruises.
As everyone’s budgets are different, we work with you to plan an event that fits within your parameters. For smaller events or budgets, you can book a private deck on one of our public cruises, or you can just book a few tables for your guests. If you are having a larger event with a bigger budget, you can charter the full 3-deck, climate-controlled yacht, the Skyline Princess. We proudly offer full ship private charters from NY, NJ, LI, Westchester, and CT.
The Skyline Princess sails year round, so you never have to worry about the weather. Our yacht is a floating catering hall, designed to be comfortable. Our three decks are available for many uses. If your fundraiser has a party planned, your guests can enjoy our top level skylight deck that has a DJ and a dance floor. This deck can be fully enclosed or left open when weather conditions are ideal. Additionally, our casino tables can be available on one of our decks. We can set up an auction space or tables for a meeting.
We provide a spacious dining area with terrific food and we can help plan your menu to suit your affair. Our in-house chef prepares the delicious food fresh in the ship’s galley. We can provide:
- Simple to elegant menu options
- Buffets and finger foods
- Formal buffets and sit-down service
- Traditional celebration cake to pastries to extravagant dessert stations
- Full cash bars, open bars, and premium open bars available
Professional Tip: Consider hosting your fundraiser on a weekday evening. Typically, this helps to avoid conflicting weekend plans that your guests may have.
A Unique Venue with Historical Sights to See
What’s better than a floating venue that boasts beautiful and iconic scenery? Nothing. Hosting your fundraiser on a NYC Skyline Cruise will mean that you and your guests will enjoy cruising past the Empire State Building, South Street Seaport, and One World Trade Center, and sailing under the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg Bridges. When done right, fundraising events help charities and organizations succeed. Skyline Cruises has what it takes to take your fundraiser to the next level.
In addition to fundraisers, Skyline Cruises are perfect for just about any occasion. We are proud to be the venue of choice for many events and celebrations including:
- Business meetings and seminars
- School reunions
- Bar Mitzvahs / Bat Mitzvahs
- Sweet Sixteens
