    Default Any Ideas?

    Okay peeps, I've got until Monday (10/24) to come up with 10 (minimum) fund raising ideas for our United Way campaign at work and need your help. This will be for a hospital business office of around 45 people and will take place over a two week period. I'm sure some of you creative minds out there can come up with some great ideas for me.

    This is what I have so far...

    1) Bake Sale
    Everyone signs up to work 30 min shifts and anyone who brings in a bake good gets their name in a drawing for dinner tickets.

    2) Jeans for United Way
    For a $10 donation, you can wear jeans every friday until the end of November. HR says they have to announce why they are out of office grub so I'm going to make a pin to wear that says "I pay to play for United Way".

    3) Candy Count (Dracula)
    A jar full of Halloween candy... guess the closest amount and win the jar in time for the holiday. ($1 per guess)

    4) Quarter Drop
    Big jar with water & a shot glass... drop quarters into the shot glass for some kind of little prize (working on that).

    5) Pizza Payoff
    Office pizza party for 100% participation (my boss donated the funds).

    6) 50/50 Tickets
    Pay $1 to enter.. winner gets 50% of the pot.

    Okay that's what I have so far. ANY ideas you may have would be great!

    Sell take and bake pizza.  Here we have a great place that lets us keep $4 for every $10 paid.  People can take the Za home for dinner.  Have just two kinds - cheese and pepperoni - or else your life will be crazy.  Distribution requires some support.

    Host a 3 on 3 basketball tournament - in ACC country, this is big.

    Have each department make a theme basket - beach, movies, music, holiday, Harry Potter, American Idol, etc... and auction them off to the highest bidder.

    Auction off dinner with the CEO.  People might pay to bend her ear.

    Up the price of soft drinks for a month and keep the change.

    Host a fantasy football game, and have folks pay to play.

    Have a Halloween costume party and charge admission.

    See if your office people can guess CThree's real name.



    hope those help!

    Suggestions:

    Bachelor Auction - find some willing "hotties" and auction off a dinner date with them.

    Yard Sale - have people donate items and have a yard sale and all donations can go to the charity

    BBQ - have a BBQ and charge $5-$10 per plate depending on the amount of sides they want and what main entree they want.

    I will keep pondering.........

    One more thing - adapt it to adults -

    have a theme for the whole thing. If you're going with halloween, that'd be good. let people buy pieces of a picture and post their pieces in the main lobby. We had a reading program here where the kids earned dragon scales, and eventually made a huge dragon. you put their names on the scale and let them put it up... then bigger contributors get to put the fire on the dragon. Before you know it, you'll have flames a plenty.

    I'll keep thinking...

    Street Sleepover.


    Let all those mover n shaker trophy wives experience slumming it for real.

    Cots right outside the effing Hilton or whatever, sanitized desparation. They get tshirts:

    I paid $5000 to sleep on the street.

    (all caps, Erbar bold, 24 pt. centered black on platinum tee subtle-like with a free boutonierre made of newspaper)

    Works because effete pink-collar couples get to feel all gangsta, without ever knowing how it really goes.

    Soup up the PR: sleeping around for charity, etc. Cardboard, somehow, use cardboard but make it all cool.


    My best advice.

    I have never laughed so hard in one night in my entire life. We had about an hour earlier when this was an estrogen only zone - but it's much more fun with the guys back. What a night!

    Too funny.
