The Details and Planning Guide:
Christian comedian/speaker Dorie Mclemore will provide:
Promo pictures for your event
Nationwide travel, hotel, & meal expenses and arrangements
Approximate 60-minute clean stand-up comedy show, ending in a message of hope for your women
The cost of each ticket is a minimum of $20 which will be collected and handled by the host. The host organization will keep half of all ticket sales and will provide a check to Dorie Mclemore for the other half at the event. Hosts of local events guarantee that 50 tickets or more will be sold and hosts of out-of-area events guarantee that at least 100 tickets will be sold. Out-of-area is considered over 200 miles from Dallas, Texas.
The more tickets sold, the more funds you raise for your group or cause! If less than guaranteed tickets are sold or if complimentary tickets are given out, the host church will just need to cover the unsold tickets at $10/ticket at time of event.
No special decor is necessary or expected, but if decor is desired, all decor expenses, set-up/tear-down will be handled by the host and her team.
The host organization agrees to provide:
the location of the event with a stage, sound system, and seating for 50+ attendees
pre-event and at-door ticket sales
1 volunteer for airport/hotel/event transportation for Dorie (out-of-area events only)
1-2 experienced volunteer(s) for sound team
2 volunteers to help run ticket sales at door
2 volunteers to help sell Dorie's books/merch at table before/after event

1 handheld mic (wireless preferred)
a small podium/table or music stand and bottle of water onstage
one 6-foot table in the entry way/lobby area to sell her books/merchandise
