**Dig for Pink Day**

What and why?

The event that I’m planning is a Dig for Pink Day. This event is where my whole club volleyball team and I will play for a cure. The purpose of this event is to raise money and donate all that money to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

This event is important to me because I want breast cancer to be cured for good. It's important to do something you love while raising money for a good cause.

Revenue Analysis

Cost Analysis

Break Even Point

Jamba Juice

I plan to charge $4 per drink. I predict that 80% attendees will buy. Expected revenue $3.20 per customer.

Accepting Donations

I predict that 60% of attendees will donate at least $10. Expected revenue $6 per customer.

Money Raised from the event

I predict that 90% players will make a dig. And have a rate of $10 (or more) per dig. Expected revenue $9 per customer.

Total Revenue

$20.30 per customer

Revenue Equation

Since I expect $20.30 per customer, my revenue equation is: y=20.3x

(y=the money I make & x=the amount of customers)

Revenue Graph

Gatorade

I plan to charge $3 per drink. I predict that 70% attendees will buy. Expected revenue $2.10 per customer.

$3.20+ $2.10+ $6+ $9=

The slope is 20.3. Every customer who attends, I will earn $20.30.

The y-intercept is 0. But since this is a mandatory club volleyball event I will be expecting to 300 attendees no matter what.

Business Plan & Profit Analysis

Fixed Costs

*Fixed costs don't depend on the amount of attendees.*

Variable Costs

*Variable costs do depend on the amount of attendees.*

Advertisements~ I will send out emails with the electronic flyer attached.

Facility~ This event will be held at our home gym.

Other Items~ This includes chairs and tables, which I can borrow from the high school.

Jamba Juice~ It will cost $500 for 300 small smoothies. The cost per customer is $1.70.

Gatorade~ Based from amazon.com/grocery, the Frost Variety Pack that has 30 drinks will cost $150; and I will buy 10 packs which equals 300 drinks. Each bottle is 16.9 oz. The cost per customer is $.53.

T-Shirts~ Based from customink.com, 300 customized shirts costs $700. The cost per customer is $2.30.

Total Costs

Total fixed costs: $0

Total variable costs: $4.53 per customer

Cost Equation

This equations models the cost of my event:

y=0x+4.53

"y" equals the amount of money I spend.

"x" equals the number of attendees.

Graph of Cost Equation

Explanation of Cost Equation Graph

The slope of the line is 4.53, this means for each attendee that comes I will spend $4.53.

The y-intercept is my fixed cost which equals 0.

Algebraic

My cost equation is y= 0x+4.53

My revenue equation is y= 20.3x

I want to find he point where the cost and the revenue are equal, so this is how I set the two equations:

0x + 4.53 =20.3x ~~~> then solve for "x."

-0x -0x

4.53 = 20.3x This means I will need 0 customers

to break even.

4.53 / 20.3 = x

0.22 = x

Graphical

This graph represents the 2 equations and where they cross.

The point of the intersection is the break even point. This is because that is the place where the cost and revenue are equal.

(I need to add a graph)

To solve for the break even point, I can use algebraic or graphical methods.

Number of Attendees

Graph of all 3 equations

Profit Equation

Since my event is a mandatory event for all volleyball players in my club, I will be expecting 300 people or more.

The costs will be:

$4.53 (300) + $0 = 1359 + $0 = $1,359

My revenue:

$20.30 (300) = $6,090

Profit:

$6,090 - $1,359 = $4,731

I can create an equation to find the profit for any number of people who attend my event.

I will subtract the cost equation from the revenue equation to find the profit.

Profit= 20.3x - (4.53x + 0)

= 15.77 - 0

The ___ line represents the profit. The profit is $0 when x = ___, which matches the break even point.
