Fundraising Potentional ~ "Spot Show"

At one time, professional wrestling generated revenue by one method, by selling tickets to live matches. They still do, of course, by televsion, radio, events, has opened other doors.

"Spot Shows" are those events co-sponsored by the wrestling organization and a local non-profit community group such as a Lions Club, Main Street Assoc., a High School Band Booster Club, a Senior Citizen organization, a High School Senior Class group, a PTA or a School Athletic Booster club or group.

The Spot Show is typically held in a school gym, at a football field, a rodeo arena, a Armory or any other location that can seat an estimated 1,000 people (can be less, all depends on the community) Even the smallest gymnasium has enough room for at least 400 ringside seats. Wild West provides the talent, the ring, the promotion staff, general liability insurance, local permit (if needed), and assistance with the advertising and promotion of the event if needed. Your organization will be assigned an Event Coordinator, this is a professional wrestling promoter whose job it is to help you have a successful and profitable event. The non-profit organization provides the facility, the seating, security and ushers, tickets and advance ticket sales, ticket sellers and ticket takers, advertising for the event, and cleans up the venue after the event.

Revenue from the event (all proceeds taken in) will go to your organization. The revenue can be generated through such things as ticket sales, concession stand items, souvenir programs, auctions that can be held during match intermisisons and more.
