St. Patrick’s Day Bar Crawl Fundraiser Ideas


One of the best ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is to grab a few of your favorite mates and attend a bar crawl to party. But do you know Bar crawls provide great opportunities for visitors from all over to sample various craft-brewed beers and liquors that are locally produced, in addition to a variety of specials. Buying and drinking locally-produced craft-brewed beer is one of the best ways wherein you can help and give back to the local community. It’s a great way to have fun, while helping others… And, it makes for a great reason to drink so more, too! But the enjoyment doesn’t have to stop there. There’s more fun beyond the party. Social Scene has a hundred thoughts crawling towards some sure-fire St. Patrick's Day Bar Crawl FUNdraiser ideas that you can do while partying. Here are a few...



1. Ticket Sales

Raise funds by selling tickets in advance. You can charge between $10 to $25, depending on the size and length of your event. Bar crawls with better discounts, free drinks, and other benefits require a higher price. If you are tech savvy, you may create a website that accepts payments. For those of us who are not, some sites can help you with your ticket sales such as EventBrite.


Maybe you want to sell some tickets of your own for an event produced by you? How does that sound? Learn how to by clicking below and signing up for Social Scene's Event Academy.

2. Provide Awesome Fundraising Gear


There are a variety of companies that are able to help you set up amazing St. Paddy’s merch such as pub crawl shirts. Businesses such as and are ready to give your guests exclusive St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl gear which could also double as a memento to that event. Now that's a St. Patrick's Day Bar Crawl Fundraiser Idea!

3. Raffle Time!


Another St. Patrick's Day Bar Crawl Fundraiser Idea is to let your customers try the luck of the Irish by holding a raffle. You can discuss with the owners of the bars to check if they are OK with you holding a raffle for a charity. You may also opt to do multi-prize raffles where you get to sell raffle tickets for a chance to win one of the many top prizes. Don’t forget to set aside half of your raffle sales between your cause and the prizes (or prize money). Also, tap on to other patrons to sell your raffle tickets.
