Pampered Chef: Fundraiser What PC Receipe do I use?

  1. I have a fundraiser coming up for about 150 people. I am curious as to what would be the best receipe to serve on a limited budget. Also open to any tips or ideas for doing a presentation in front of a crowd this big. :confused:

    I am having a fundraiser in Aug. I plan to do a veg. platter with dip. If you have a garden or someone that does, this would cut cost down. I also am going to do some apples/caramel dip, and possibly a fruit pizza. Hope this helps.

    Are you doing a demo for all these people or just a set up?

    If you are just setting up a table, I'd make a dip with pretzel sticks, cookies, or brownie bites.

    If you are doing a demo, I'd maybe do a potato demo that lets them see the products they are going to sell. OR I'd make a simple appetizer like the the cheesy spinach pinwheels (but you'd have to be able to cook these and that might be a problem with so many....you could make most of them ahead of time and just demo one). This is inexpensive (crescent rolls, cream cheese, garlic, spinach leaves, thin ham).

    If you don't have access to an oven, you could make the crust for a cool veggie pizza ahead of time and demo putting it together at the fundraiser kickoff. You could make 2 and cut it into tiny pieces for everyone.

    This is a technical question. How do you attach a Word file when you are replying to a thread? I have been copying and pasting but prefer how you have the attachment.

    Thanks for your help.

    How about the new baked potsticker recipe? You can make up a ton of them in advance and then demo the filling and folding - one in each style. One of the directors in my cluster did this at our Fall Kick off. Her kitchen show demo was basically talking about the products she used and how, with xsell tips thrown in, and them demo the folding.

    Also, at fundraisers I have done, I have done a demo, and no demo. For a large organization that is going to be running the fundraiser for a period of time after the kick-off, I have found it is best to focus on the logistics of collecting the orders, who to approach, etc (especially if it is a school group or group where non-adults will be participating in collecting orders).

    I prepared a "Try Me" flyer that I used and went over the flyer at the kick-off so that the members would be familiar with some of the products and have some key buzz words to use when approaching potential customers that may not be familiar with the PC. (Again, it is on my computer and home and I will forward it in a few hours)
