Rock for RADD fundraising

By RockforRADD - 18 March 2009 33

We are starting a bit of a fundraising campaign for this years Rock for RADD. 

Rock for RADD is a charity concert held annually aimed at raising money and awareness to the dangers of drink driving.  Proceeds go to RADD (Recording Artists, Athletes & Actors Against Drink Driving). 

Last year we had 11 bands, 1 DJ it was held at the Holy Grail in civic and we were really happy with the turnout and the money raised!!

This year the event is being held in November at the ANU Refectory.  It will have 2 stages, more bands and more DJs.  The idea is to raise as much money leading up to the event to cover the required outlay costs of putting on the event which will also increase the donation made from the door sales on the day.

Really appreciate your help and support!!!

Rock for RADD is raising funds by selling the 2009/2010 Entertainment™ Book.

The 2009 Entertainment™ Book is bigger and better than ever with over $15,000 worth of value.

You only need to use it once or twice and it’s paid for itself.  With all your favourite’s and new businesses like Ottoman, Waters Edge, Pod Food, Flint Dining Room, Dendy Cinemas and many more, we suggest you get your orders in now as 2009 stocks are very limited !

Entertainment Books sell for $50 and contain hundreds of 25-50% off and two-for-one offers from popular restaurants, cinemas, hotel accommodation, the arts, and sporting events. There truly is something for everyone.

Order your new Entertainment Book now and receive over $150 in bonus offers that you can use straight away (see attached).

The funding is to pay for security, bands, PA, lighting and promotion, it all stacks up a lot for this kind of thing. It is non profit so proceeds go to RADD.
The idea of the whole thing is to spread the message about how dangerous drink driving can be. RADD support the way we feel which is why the proceeds follow them.
Some people do look up to these celebrities and if they see them saying something or spreading a message then they will listen. Unfortunatly most people are not like this.
We experienced the pain first hand as to how dangerous this can be so basically if we get the message across to one person and only one then its been worthwhile.

So what do RADD do with the money? Pay the celebs or for the production/airtime? Isn’t their some kind or arrangement whereby the commercial media has to fill a percentage of their advertising with community service announcements for free? I’m not having a go, just curious as to where RADD spend that money that you guys are busting your butts to make for them.

Also I don’t find it unfortunate at all that ‘most people’ require a celebrity endorsement before they make their mind up about something. I reckon in some cases that could be percieved as free thinking and kinda smart…

Im not really sure what you are getting at with your comment skidbladnir.

The book is designed for fundraising groups to have an avenue to sell the book and raise money towards the charity etc.
I guess if you want to scratch a little deeper the book is also designed at supporting local industry be it restaraunts etc.

not real sure what that link is directed at that you pasted in there.

This would be the same Entertainment Book that includes a 20% kick-back commission to you from the for-profit company on any sales, right?

All while driving up sales for the listed businesses (Entertainment Publications Of Australia Pty Ltd, http://www.search.asic.gov.au/cgi-bin/gns030c?acn=065011903&juris=9&hdtext=ACN&srchsrc=1), as a marketing tool targetted at squeezing more out of the umm… price-sensitive-but-not-afraid-of-looking-cheap… end of the market?

Finalised = confirmed.

Whatever.

Regarding the funding, is that to pay for things like venue, PA, security and bands?

I have to admit I find the concept of RADD odd, I don’t care either way if a celebrity is against drink driving, I think we all know it’s kind of wrong, and if we don’t the only deterrent is going to be the old RBT.

Still if there’s some good bands at the gig I’ll check it out.

RockforRADD 3:39 pm 18 Mar 09

If you are real keen go check out the myspace, if you look hard enough you will probably be able to work out a few of the bands etc that are confirmed already.

Gig isnt till 28 November so there will be plenty o updates between now and then

RockforRADD 3:36 pm 18 Mar 09

Actually we have confirmed 10 bands, 4 DJs and a couple of electro acts. Just not prepared to announce who is and isnt playing when the line up is yet to be finalised. This posting isnt about the event its about the fundraising.

At this stage I can say there is a great list of local and interstate bands playing with a couple of more major spots still to be filled, hence the fundraising efforts so early on.
http://www.myspace.com/rockforradd will have all the details once launched
