    Okay - if you are like me, you think "PC" all the time. This morning, I was driving to work (I do have another job!) and listening to the morning DJ's at our local radio station. They were interviewing a girl who will be in the Miss NC USA pagent and was looking for sponsors and fundraising ideas....bingo! This station is always doing funny, crazy things. So I got to thinking....should I contact them? They are on a busy road here in town, and are only on in the mornings. I have all sorts of ideas running thru my head...I was thinking of baking a bunch of muffins, having coffee, people going to work in the morning could stop, get a muffin, check out PC stuff, buy something....its a fundraiser and she gets the 15%...have catalogs available, people could get together orders and come back, or turn them in later....keep it going for like a week. I dont know....just me thinking you know....any ideas? :rolleyes:

    Go For It!!!

    I would go for it. The worst they can say is no. I think it is a great idea and with the radio station working with you, you could raise a lot of money. Good Luck with it. Let us know what you decide and what the outcome. :D

    What a great brainstorm you had! I think it's definitely worth pursuing. I don't know if they would do any "on air" advertising or anything like that, but just be aware of the fact that "Kitchen Consultants, Future Directors and Directors may not advertise or promote your business on the radio. The only exception is when radio advertising is included in registration or booth fee for a bridal fair, home expo or even similar to Taste of Home demonstration." That's from Recipe for Success. If it wouldn't specifically be advertised on the radio that a PC consultant is part of a fundaiser, I would think it's fine. I would just hate for someone else hear a blurb about you on the radio and have you get in trouble.

    Let us know what happens! :)
