:chef:I need to put together a small fundraiser for my son's daycare. I have no clue on how to do this; I've never done a fundraising show before. The daycare only has 22 children, so obviously, this fundraiser is pretty small, by most people's standards. My initial thought was to have a cooking show at my house, inviting all of the interested moms and dads. I'd demo a few recipes, let people handle and try out the different products, and let them order whatever they wanted. Secondary to that, I would also have catalog show packets to give to each guest, asking that they take the catalogs and outside order forms to hand out to their friends/co-workers/family and coordinate their own "catalog show", then have them return the OOF's and money to me by a certain date. This way, people NOT interested in holding their own show can still order something from me, but people who do hold their own catalog show have the option to get a lot more orders, and consequently raise far more money than me doing my own solo show. Do you think that this method would work? Do you have better suggestions that I could follow? For each person that does elect to have a catalog show, do they get the hostess special for the month? I'd love to hear any suggestions that you may have. Thanks!
