Need ideas on a fundraiser for a friend with cancer

Mar 16, 2005
Hi...I want to see if any of you have any suggestions or formats on organizing a community fundraiser to help raise money for a Pampered Chef friend that just learned she has stage 4 cancer. I'm hoping to help raise money for her living expenses since she will be flying back and forth to NY from Fl to get special treatments.

I see lots of ideas for the HWC but nothing in general...any help is appreciated...this lady is a doll...she's only 41 with a 1 year old and a 12 year old. She's a fighter and I'm praying she beats this but they told her 1-3 years if she's lucky but I thinks she has it in her to win this battle...

I live in St. Petersburg, FL...if anyone is willing to help me out in raising funds
please email me back at [email protected]

Thanks to all...!!!!

Fundraiser for a person!

I didn't think it was possible to put a fund raiser through for an individual, I thought it had to be a charity or an organisation. It may be different in US, but in UK my director told me of something similar, and they got round it by going through their local church. The cheque was made out to the church, and they gave the individual the cash.
Good Luck :)

At least in the US, if there is some type of fund or special bank account set up, it's possible to do a fundraiser and have PC cut the check to the fund. I did a fundraiser for a couple who had an adoption fund because they were planning to adopt a child overseas and it is so expensive. So, I know it was possible because I did it a couple years ago.

I just posted a couple of flyers on the other thread that you mentioned this lady and her cancer. I don't know if they are what you're looking for. Let me know if there is anything more specific you are looking in a flyer and I'll look for one.
