Diamond Divas: Reuniting for Charity

The tickets looked fantastic and were so cheap! Everybody commented on how professional they made us look and they really did. The design was perfect for the event and had a really sleek finish to them.

The template for the ticket made it simple to count how many tickets we had been handed in on the night which was good for practical reasons.

In a reunion for a great cause, Olivia Hine and her fellow Diamond Divas, Julia Mosley, Amy Condrey, Hannah Cheetham, Natalie Jackson, Ryan Gibson, Joshua King, and Luke Brightmore came together to raise money for a great cause.

The talented group, made up primarily of former Leek High students appeared 17 August at the Leek Main Hall, where they performed with special guest Dominic Cooper from local band, Rollin Home.

“This year we decided to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. However it wasn’t just about raising money but also raising awareness of Alzheimer’s and dementia, which I feel we succeeded in doing,” Olivia told me.  According to its website, the “Alzheimer’s Society is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.”

For the event, The Diamond Divas chose the Broadway Event Ticket, a professionally printed ticket that is perfect for any performance. Featuring the bright lights of Broadway in the background, this sequentially numbered event ticket sets the stage with plenty of room for event information and a detachable stub so organizers can keep track of guests.

How did Olivia and her team get tickets into the hands of their attendees? “Tickets were sold through the use of posters and social networking. I also did an interview on the local radio station, Moorlands Radio. I think we mostly sold tickets through family and friends and Facebook. ”

What advice would Olivia offer other individuals who plan on hosting a similar event?  “I would say to make s
ure you get raffle prizes, sell tickets and get the best venue possible way in advance of the performance. Get as many people to sell tickets, as people know people who will want tickets and it’s far easier to sell tickets this way. ”

How did the Diamond Diva’s event go?  “After a late start due to late arrivals, we started off the event with a speech from a representative, and it was lovely to see everybody sitting silently listening to all the information given to them. The raffle was a great success after the local companies had been so generous with donations, this helped to sell raffle tickets and helps raise the money that we did, all £617.10 of it.”
