A cake walk is a fun and tasty way to raise funds! It’s a classic carnival game where participants pay to take a walk around a numbered path, and the person who stops on the winning number gets to take home a delicious cake as a prize.
- Promote your event: Use social media, flyers, and word of mouth to attract as many participants as possible. Also, you can consider partnering with local businesses to increase visibility and foot traffic.
- Create a numbered path: You can create a path on the ground using chalk or masking tape, or use a large board and number each space.
- Obtain prizes: You will need a variety of cakes or other desserts as prizes for the winners. You can bake them yourself or ask local businesses to donate prizes.
- Set up a registration table: Have a registration table where participants can pay to take a walk. You can also use this table to collect contact information for future events.
- Play lively music: Playing lively music will create a festive atmosphere and encourage participants to join in the fun.
- Assign a caller: Have someone call out the numbers as the participants walk around the path, and announce the winner of each round.
- Run the event: Once all the participants have registered, have them take a walk around the path while the caller calls out the numbers. The participant that stops on the winning number gets to take home a delicious cake as a prize.
- Collect the funds: Collect the funds from the registration table and the event is done.
