Charity concert/theater play
Charity concerts or theatre plays are organized with the purpose to raise different amounts of money (could be from about 1500 to 10.000 Euros) for a particular purpose – to help an individual/family (for basic needs like winter oil, paying bills or special needs like building a lift for wheelchair, house repair and so on). The money can also be donated to schools, organizations, help centers (for summer camps, technical equipment, etc).
Raising bigger amounts of money for a particular purpose.
A wider audience (from 20 to 60 years), that the concert hall/theatre is as full as possible. Therefore the concerts usually have more popular music and the theatre plays are usually these, that are popular at that time.
The more, the better.
You need a place where the concert/play takes place. Usually it is a local theatre/opera/culture center or a sport hall. That way you do not need any extra equipment, because everything is already there. Then you need things for promotion, like flyers, posters, etc.
You need finances for: – the musician/play (except if you are lucky and they do it for free) – the hall (which is good if you make a deal that you pay the minimum possible fee, for instance just for cleaning and stuff, not also for renting) – playing public authorized music (for concerts I do not know how that is in other countries, but in Slovenia you have to pay some fee to the Public institute for science and art)

School contacts, sponsor contacts, event location, invitations and their artwork, certificates and their artwork, prizes for all 3 winners, souvenirs for all participants, posters of the participants for the gallery, speeches.
