Charity Fundraising Program

Presented By Inman HomeServices - By Creed Realty

The Norfolk Festevents Charity Fundraising Program is an opportunity for service organizations and charities to raise funds through the sale of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at our events.

Our current policy is to donate 20% of the net proceeds from beverage sales to the organizations that participate. Each organization participates in several events throughout the season. Over $3,500,000 has been donated directly to local charities as a result of our programs and, depending on the weather, it grows by about $50,000 each year. Local organizations like Kiwanis Club of Norfolk, REACH, Inc. and The Up Center all benefit greatly from the fundraising opportunities and the social experience their members receive. This program is a model for other event production organizations across the country.

Organizations must have at least 40 members, must be a non-profit organization registered with the IRS or donate their funds to a non-profit organization.

If your organization is interested in participating, you must submit a letter of intent to:

Jason Cantone
Box Office Manager
Norfolk Festevents, Ltd.
120 West Main Street
Norfolk, VA 23510

The letter of intent should include a brief bio of your organization, a contact name, mailing address, e-mail address and phone number. The contact person will be invited to our Charity Fundraising Program Informational Meeting.  The date and location of the Charity Fundraising Program Informational Meeting are to be determined and details will be sent to organizations at the appropriate time. The complete application requirements will be distributed at that time. Our Board of Directors selects approximately 20 Clubs from the applicants and the Clubs are notified of their acceptance or denial in mid-March. Event dates are randomly selected for the Clubs in late March. The main portion of our event season typically runs from May thru October. Checks are distributed at the end of the season, typically in late November.

Please contact Jason Cantone by e-mail at or by phone at 757-441-2345 for more information.
