    lady...you would be amazed at local shops willing to donate somethin to raffle - i suggest you visit people with a flyer or something from the united way - restaurants - really big on this! (these can also double as prizes for a kewl game like bobbing for apples, the best costume!)

    also...the united way does have things to do to help them raise money - the site im sure offers something....

    ive done alot of fund raisers!

    have kids help? let them set up a goulish punch for sale!

    or find some interesting grab bags deals - put em in a nice bag (not see through) and price them all the same - mystery bags!

    i will do some little research this mornin to see what else i can do to help ya!

    peace g/f and good luck!

    If you're mainly trying to raise money internally, a prize auction can work well (if HR will cooperate with the prizes). You'd be surprised how much employees are willing to donate for certain priveleges when the money goes to charity. For example, you can auction:

    1. Dress down days for individuals, or entire teams. I've even seen a bank offer a "Pajama day" to the branch that donated the most.
    2. 1 day of "vacation" that doesn't count as vacation.
    3. Dinner with a very high ranking manager or HR member.
    4. Extended lunch for individuals or teams (that doesn't come off work hours).
    5. Immediate managers work 1 or 2 hours of the highest bidder's shift.

    You get the idea... I don't know how feasible this is in your situation, but it's definitely adaptable.

    Down here in Oklahoma, "Kiss a Pig" seems popular, I don't know why. You charge so much to nominate and vote on who has to kiss a pig--a real pig. Someone always knows someone who can get their hands on a small oinker. People love the idea of someone they either love or hate having to pucker up to a pig.

    For wrestling boosters at my old high school, we did a golf scramble. You get teams to complete charging like $250 for a team of three, provide food, golf costs, get donations from local stores for door prizes, get insurance for a million dollar hole. If someone gets a hole in one on a particular hole or something, then they win the million(and the insurance covers it). Our boosters made $5,000 easy every year.

    Default Fund Raiser

    I was once a waitress for a dinner where the dinner guests were celebrities, prominent business owners, TV and Radio personalities, politicians, etc. from the area. The waitress' messed with them during the dinner and they loved it. They had to pay for every service they received including their napkins, forks, dinner plates, water, food,etc. And the tips went for charity. It was a lot of fun. Area restaurants donated the food. I

    Everyone had a blast plus they had a nice meal. It was a big success.
    Dreams really do come true!

    You've never heard of it!!! You've heard of Longaberger baskets right? They're handmade expensive baskets. The group has bingo like any other bingo and the prizes instead of money are the baskets (often filled with items). The are a big hit around here. Sometimes you can get places that sell the baskets or local business to may for the baskets themselves for you to give away. We've charged like $20-25 for the bingo and usually have drinks and small snack. Then sell extra "specials" cards to play for a collection of baskets or one of the more expensive ones. I'd have to get all the detail for you if your interested. Pm me if you want me to get you details. It brings in a lot of money here in the city and the rural areas.

    I've never heard of it Bobbie but it sounds great. I get the basic idea but I'll PM you for more details in case I missed something.

    The Flintstone storm will be cutting next week out of our fund raising so we may not have enough time to put it together. I will also be on the team for our holiday entertainment so maybe I can incorporate this into a Christmas theme. The possibilities are endless.

    Thanks!
