Outreach event for Fathers & Sons
While most of our community outreach events are designed to encourage families to attend and enjoy together, sometimes we focus on a particular group. This month, we're holding a Father-Son Wild Game dinner for families within our church and the community. (We're following up with a Mother-Daughter event, too, and I'll tell you about that in a later post.)
We're holding the event on the week following Father's Day (Australia) so the importance of dads will be a real focus for this period within our church and with our outreach efforts. We will be sending out information and flyers about this event, as well as special invitations. We will also be writing editorial content for the local community magazine.
Decide on numbers
Since our space is limited and we need to consider catering issues, we have set a limit on the number of attendees for this event. So, although the event is free, we've printed a certain number of tickets to attend our Wild Game Dinner event.
Event package & free ticket
I've created a event package with everything you might need for a similar event, in case you wish to do something similar. I'll be posting information about this package soon. But I've also provided the ticket as a free download below.
Remembering that we will have a range of different ages attending this event, we've planned some activities in conjunction with the dinner and in keeping with the theme. So, there will be some sporting equipment for everyone to use and test their skill and expertise, We'll have some competitions like, casting fishing lines for distance and precision & accuracy.
We will also be having a show by a professional Snake & Reptile presenter, a hands-on interaction with these creatures that is safe and educational. For some strange reason, guys like to get up close and personal with these huge pythons.
We're planning to serve rabbit, venison, crocodile and kangaroo. We will be using camouflage material on the tables and everything will be presented with a rustic twist, (though not, Mr Grylls, in an old boot!)
As you might imagine, the boys are jumping up and down with excitement.
