    Has anyone done a HWC Community Fundraiser? I was thinking of doing one in May at the Veteran's Building. Announcing in Newspaper, Local Radio Station but I'm kind of nervous on how to prepare and make it a huge event. any tips?

    Has anyone done their own fundraiser? I chose the Vet's Building because my house to too small and I wanted to raise awareness in my community.

    Noel,
    First and foremost, ask for help. Make sure you have order takers.
    And no one said you have to do food or a demo. I am doing several of these and plan only to have products on display and people there to help me with orders. And go minimum on what you take. DCB, Madolin, Food Chopper, Bamboo Snack Bowls and Craker tray, One colapsible bowl, HWC stuff especially. KISS! Keep It Simple Silly. Pick out some of the best small tools and take your Tool-Turn-About. (I always consider this ONE item even if it is stuffed full becaus eit is only one thing to carry.)
    I am making some littel signs that say something like, I am the Pampered Chef Food Chopper and I sell for $29.50. If you buy me I will give ACS $7.38.
    Or I am the Deep Covered BAker and I sell for $69.50 and I will give ACS $17.38. That type of thing. I want everyone to know how much will be donated on anything I display. In fact thsi weekend I am going to choose all my display products and get them all packed up. Pre-prep is important as well. I have all my catalogs labeled, all the order froms labeled, all the specials flyers printed, all the invites ready to go out.

    I meant flyers to tell people about the events themselves. Actually, I only needed two. All the other events are already being advertised by other people. The weenie roast is going in the paper but my friend wanted a few to put up at local establishements so... I had to zip them as they are two big to post.

    John, those are fabulous. Thanks for the ideas. How many hot dogs and chips did you actually purchase for the event?

    Luckily we have a Sam's club but we are thinking 200 buns & dogs and sodas and little bags of chips. You can refreeze hotdogs if needed and if I get the buns at the right price, I won't care if I feed birds for a while. I may up all of that too because of that. I am getting the individual bags of chips so they too can be used later as well as the cans of soda. I finally get to see the sign my friend had made this weekend! If I can figure out how, I will post a picture!

    I loved your idea for dinner by candlelight. I'm sure you've probably already thought about this but thought I'd share anyway. I've used the trifle bowl filled 1/2 way with water and floating candles as a center piece for personal dinner parties. I added it to our booth display at a bridal fair and had so many compliments. It would be a fun way to actually combine the two businesses in your dispay rather than just simple additions.
