CREATIVE FUNDRAISING

Donations alone are not always enough to reach your fundraising goals and there are many creative and enterprising methods to relieve your friends, family and co-workers of their hard earned cash. We encourage you to incorporate some of these fundraising ideas to help achieve or even exceed your ultimate goal.

? Wine Dinners ? Food & Soda sale (plate lunches, boiled peanuts,

pizza, etc) ? Rummage sales ? Bake sales or contests ? Putting or Closest to the green contests ? Parking stall raffles

? Mother's Day gift baskets ? Make breakfast to sell to your co-workers ? Unused jewelry sale ? Easter baskets for employees to pre-order ? Silent Auctions ? Do pre-order sales on Take Home Family Dinners ? The good ole standby, car washes!

Remember that the best way to run a successful campaign is for the excitement and enthusiasm to start at the top and roll down to all employees. General Managers, Presidents, and Executive Committees not only have to endorse the CHARITY WALK, they have to LIVE IT.

Let us help publicize your fundraising efforts! And share other innovative ideas with other recruiters. If your property or organization is having a special CHARITY WALK fundraiser or offering a special room rate, please let MHLA know ? we can help to spread the word. Fax: 244-3094 or Email: info@
