Fund-Raisers

1984 believes in giving back to the community.  We have a program to help raise money through fund-raising events at 1984.

To book a fund-raiser for your charity or organization, please stop by in-person during our regular hours (4PM to 11PM Wed. to Sat.)  We have books all the way until late 2016.  We request in-person booking of private events so you can bring documentation of your charity / organization with you.  We have to make sure that funds raised are going to genuine charities / organizations.

Your event will be scheduled as a Private Event (held during non-open business hours).  During your event each person in the door will pay the standard $7.50 admission.  For cash admission $3.75 will go to you and $3.75 to 1984.  For admissions using a credit/debit card $3.25 will go to you and $4.25 will go to 1984.

Fund-raiser events are scheduled on Saturdays from 1:30PM to 3:30PM.  This is our premium schedule slot and will get the best turn out for your event.  By scheduling a fund-raiser on Saturday you will not only get the people you reach out to in your promotional efforts, but you will also get people that come to 1984 early wanting to get into the arcade before we open at 4PM.   As long as you are willing to let walk-ins come into your event we will charge the $7.50 per person.

During fund-raiser events we will not allow any admission coupons. Admission coupons will be accepted only during our regular business hours.   This gives the fund-raiser the maximum earning potential.

During your event we will sell our concessions at regular prices.  Outside food & beverages are not allowed into 1984 during fund-raisers.

At the end of your event we will do a register report for total admissions and present you with cash for half of the total.  Anyone admitting during your event can stay through until close at 11PM.  They have paid for the day and our admission is an all-night-pass.

To book a fund-raiser you need to stop by 1984 in person and talk to a staff member.  We have bookings until late 2016 at this time.  We need to talk to you face-to-face to ensure a valid charity will be the recipient of the fund-raiser.  Please bring letter head or other documentation from your charity.
