Pampered Chef: Fundraiser Relay for Life Fundraiser

    Has anyone ever done a Relay for Life Fundraiser? How did you go about doing it? I need all the information I can get.

    I recently contacted the American Cancer Society in my area regarding the surrounding area events and he has several teams that are very interested in doing fundraisers for the events. I'm talking 18 counties. :D I am very excited about it but I am very new to PC. I started in January 2006. I have only had 3 shows so far.

    He is wanting a flyer with the information on it. They will get 15% profit for shows over $600 from PC and I offered at least another 5% to them. Is this correct?

    I also stated that we could sell the HWC products as well. PC will donate $1 for every HWC product that is sold, correct? The only thing is that the team will not receive the $1 from HWC, it will be donated by PC directly.

    He is wanting more info and I don't know what to give him other than a letter from me stating all the facts.

    Does anyone have any flyers, etc. that I could use as a guide with this?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    The way I did it was to go to acs.org. I searched for the division office for my area and called them and asked who I needed to speak to! I spoke with a lady that covers 4 or 5 counties and she's VERY interested in presenting the idea to her teams. Speak to the Area Supervisor. Explain that you are a Pampered Chef Consultant that would LOVE to help her teams reach their donation goals with a Pampered Chef FUNDRAISER! You can do it as a competition between the teams that are registered for that Relay location and donate 10% of your commission to the team that sales the most! I have presented it to my Area Supervisor just like this. Each team will have a separate fundraiser and will receive 10% or 15% commission depending on their sales directly from The Pampered Chef and then which ever team has the HIGHEST sales will receive 10 of my 15% commission on the sales of ALL the different teams sales.

    EX:
    Team Sales
    Team A=650
    Team B=745
    Team C=500
    Team D=1100
    Total=2995

    TPC Donations for each Team
    Team A=97.5
    Team B=111.75
    Team C=50
    Team D=165
    Total=424.25

    Team D is the winning Team so they will receive my Donation, which is 10%of my 15% commission on 2570.75 which = 257.08! My 5% = 128.53 which will cover my expenses!

    Consultants are paid on the sales AFTER the donation is subtracted!

  4. Who gets the check?

    :confused: Does PC send the check to the actual fundraising individual in the group, to the group or to ACS? HELP...I'm confused! I have never done anything with Relay for Life, I wanted to make some calls tomorrow about it, but I want to have my facts straight first. Do the individuals raise funds and then submit them as a team or do the teams raise money all together? Does anyone do Relay for Life fundraisers earlier in the year, like March or April? Can we put a link on the team's website as long as we get the okay from HO? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    The check goes to the Relay for Life location. Such as the one that I'm doing is Morgan County Relay for Life, from what I've been told, but I'm not certain that is totally correct. Because the Event Chair would have to open a checking acct or savings acct to collect the donations. I'm working with an 2 Area Supervisors and will find out some more info and come back here with a another post and let you all know for sure!

    Tiffany,

    How did this go? Did you raise a lot of money for RFL? Most of our area RFL events are in June and July, so I am getting ready to contact a lot of the team captains to help with their fundraising. Should I offer the raffle or just do cooking shows and catalog shows?

    Thanks!
