I work as a volunteer Hound on a team for a church, and we have an upcoming teen event in February.
Our goal is to attract more than 700 teens to an event that will feature vendors in areas such as formalwear, hair salons, nail salons, florists, limo companies, etc., all of which have to do with Valentine’s Day and the spring prom. We plan to do a fashion show, send flyers, create a website, send text messages on cell phones, have a cool band—the whole 9 yards—but we could still be missing lots of good ideas that would be obvious to everyone else not so close to the event as we are.
What can some other well-seasoned Hounds suggest to attract teens, get them to preregister, and make this event a huge success?
