Good Conversation Starters @ Fundraising events

  1. I have to go to a few events for work with people I dont know.

    Any suggestions on how to break the ice?
  2. Fundraising events are really no different than other types of social events (e.g. weddings, etc).

    Say hello to people you know, introduce yourself to those you don't know. You could ask them how they became involved in the organization for which the fundraiser is being held, where they're from, what do they do, etc. Just basic small talk.
