BOSTON, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Paint Nite, the global leader in Creative Entertainment, today announced the launch of Virtual Fundraisers, a brand-new initiative aimed at empowering consumers and organizations to raise money for causes they care about, using a simple online tool.
Taking just under five minutes, the process to set-up a Virtual Fundraiser is easy. A user simply inputs some basic information into the Paint Nite database, and then chooses a cause to raise funds for. The user will receive a custom code that they can then share with their networks. Each time the code is used to purchase a Paint Nite ticket, $15 is donated back to the cause the code is associated with.
"The new Virtual Fundraiser offering opens a new door for both organizers and consumers alike," said Kristina Lock, VP of Private Events, Paint Nite. "Being able to share a unique fundraiser code virtually with friends and family across the country, means that people will be able to raise even more money for the causes that matter most to them, without having to physically be in the same room at the same event."
This virtual initiative joins Paint Nite's traditional fundraising offering which, to date, has helped charitable organizations raise more than $2.5 million. In support of hundreds of organizations, Paint Nite has hosted more than 2,000 events this year alone. From local schools, food pantries and shelters, to larger organizations including The American Cancer Society, Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity and the American Heart & Stroke Association.
The Boston-based Creative Entertainment Company has experienced rapid growth since its inception in 2012, expanding to more than 1,600 cities globally, and hosting 6,000 events with 200,000 guests on four different continents each month. Thanks to its recent debut of Plant Nite, an equally unique social event concept, now in 60+ U.S. cities, Paint Nite has become the go-to source for Creative Entertainment.
