Here’s a list of six highly exciting and popular fundraising ideas for sports organizations and community centers.


Carnivals are one of the most popular and exciting celebrations and with good reason. These thrilling festivals can be held for a day or a weekend and, with so many ways to make money, your hard work is guaranteed to pay off. From ticket sales, to rides and attractions, food, and vendor merchandise, there will always be something for everyone at a carnival. Acrylic skating rinks are a great additions to any carnival event because they offer exciting games and physical entertainment for every age and skill level.


Auctions are great ways to sell valuable merchandise and team memorabilia to eager buyers. Common auctioned items include artwork, signed jersey’s, rare collectables, sports equipment, tech gadgets, and trips. With the help of our professional staff at Anytime Ice Skating, we can help you host a fabulously unique and unforgettable auction fundraiser for your team.


What better way to raise cash for your team’s upcoming season than to hold a community games tournament. Iceless rink rentals are the perfect arena for registered teams to meet for their favorite sports endeavor.  Competitive charitable events offer plenty of opportunities to add exciting activities, food stations, and games for the participants to enjoy in between their competitions. These lively events offer plenty of fun, thrills, and community bonding for competitors and spectators.


For those who really want to challenge their physical abilities, they can do so at a communal skate-athon. Registered participants can sharpen their blades and get ready for hours on non-stop gliding excitement. You can organize your skating telethon as an all day, all night or 24-hour challenge. At Anytime Ice Skating, our non-ice skating rinks come in different sizes to suit your group and location needs. For those who want to join in the event but don’t have the footwear, we have skate rentals to meet their wishes so anyone can join.


Concerts are a wonderful way to raise money while promoting the musical sounds and vocals of local artists. Now is a great time to organize a musical fundraising date because the weather is nice enough to host your musical entertainment on an outdoor stage. Set up one of our acrylic skating arenas close to the stage so those who want to move to the music can do so.

Community Dance

Dances are family-friendly fundraisers that quickly  bring everyone together for an enjoyable evening of music and movement. Take advantage of the warm evening climate by setting up a public dance indoors, outdoors, or combine the two spaces for a great in and outdoor celebration. Put up a dance floor for those wanting to boogie to the beat while on their feet and set up a second stage on one of our iceless rink rentals in Indiana so the more eager enthusiasts can glide to the music.
