I have been a PC consultant for 4 months ( a newbie). I have been hosting shows and been a customer for over 10 years. I am doing my first fundraiser for our town baseball/softball league. There are over 50 teams. I started out by having a kick off show at the town hall. It was required by the league that there was to be 1 Pampered chef mom to represent each team. I had hung flyers around town and everyone who RSVP'd was to receive a free SB cookbook, so that I could have an aproximate # of people to have enough food. We had our kick off with about 1/2 of the teams at the show or picking up the information to give out to each player from there team. At the kick off everyone had a great time and loved the food. I had made flyers explaining everything in detail, made orderforms and gave out mini catalogs. All the information included my phone #, e-mail and web site address. I still have the other 1/2 of the league that has no information. The league has also e-mailed each parent all the information. I tried handing out the information to my sons team and was aggrevated be the response or lack of from my own team. They acted like they were doing me a favor just by taking the information. I find it ironic how a lot of our community has huge houses and the keeping up with the Jones attitude, but won't support the league. They only do what benefits them. I really expected this to be more successful. So far my sales are over $700.00. Not alot for 500+ families. I have it opened for a few more weeks. I have a grand prize for the family that collects the most orders and a raffle. If you have any ideas to help me make this better, or mistakes I have made to change for future fundraisers. I have already spent $300.00 out of pocket. I am hoping for bookings. So far I have one. I even sent out an email to everyone explaining the benefits of hosting there own show and that I would donate $5.00 for each show that is booked. I don't even care if I don't make $ but I just want to use this as an opportunity to get my name out. On the other hand I have put countless hours into this and don't want' it to seem like I am doing a crummy job and make myself look bad.
