Relay for Life/HWC Fundraiser questions

Here's my situation: I got an email yesterday from our gym/club in town. They are doing a Fundraiser Car Wash/Lemonade stand today to raise money for their Relay for Life team. The Relay is May 15-16th. I got the two ladies email addresses who are leading the team. I was thinking about sending them an email or flyer introducing myself and giving them another Fundraiser option.

Since that's about 4 weeks till their event, and I've never done one before in my life, would it be better to suggest a Catalog-type fundraiser, or I'm thinking a single Cooking Show event (maybe end of the month - 1-2 weeks out) in conjunction with catalog/outside orders. What would give them enough time to get the funds from PC? How long should you really allow for a Fundraiser?

Also- since they are doing it with ACS, can they do a regular HWC fundraiser with funds going to the ACS, but have their Team name on it somehow so they get credit for it for the relay? Or do we do a normal fundraiser?

I'd love to figure out the best options to present to them-instead of looking like I have no clue what I'm talking about -which I don't!

I did a table at a Relay team's event today. I am doing it as a regular fundraiser so the check can be made out to this particular team. I am adding 10% of my commission to PC's contriubtion to give them 25%. There weren't any sales made today but the team is now going to do catalog orders and once that is complete, I will turn in the fundraiser.
It is my understanding that if you turn it in as a HWC fundraiser, the check is made out to ACS, not the individual team. I also give the organization $2 for each showed book, so along with PC's contribution of $3, that is an additional $5.

Kimberly is correct. HWC goes directly to ACS. If the RFL team does a fundraiser, their name can't go on the check. Though they are both ACS programs, HWC is restricted to breast cancer awareness, prevention and resarch only whereas RFL funds raised can be used for any ACS program.
