    I know it is tempting to do one with this month's special, I thought it over, even posted (and deleted the thread).

    Keep in mind the guest special isn't meant to be a way for a group to buy extra cookbooks cheap and re-sell them. It is a thank you for guests when they buy $60.

    The cookbook fundraiser is an old PC program. It's not valid anymore.

    even if its not a valid PC one they offer, can't i still offer it to groups? i would think i can just like any other fundraisers or ticket ones? IMO

    I think it is limiting to offer only cookbooks in a fundraiser. Granted they are easy to order and deliver. However, if someone sees a PC fundraiser and wants to order other items, you might lose business if the customer thinks that the fundraiser is only for cookbooks. You know what I mean?

    Also, I noticed you mentioned "ticket ones". Please be really careful with raffle type fundraisers. I looked into the AZ law and raffles fall under gaming here, and are illegal. There are some ways to do it legally, but there are strict rules and the penalties are all felony offenses. I decided it wasn't worth the risk!
