Host a gala - large gala events can bring in anywhere between $100,000 -$750,000+ USD through a combination of ticket sales, auction items, and sponsorships. 

Charity sporting events - sponsored running events, polo matches, kids sporting tournaments, golf tournaments, regattas, are all great ways to raise significant amounts of money
