There are several fundraising techniques for basketball game halftimes but they can be adapted for other locations. Numbered, rubber stars are sold and then the holders of stars line up around the perimeter of the gym and toss the stars at the center of the court. The closest star to the center gets a prize or a percent of the take on star sales. The kids love it and there is no way to predict where the stars may bounce because of the 5 points on them. Several variations include tossing balls of a putty type density that do not bounce or bean bags into a bucket at center court, and tossing tennis balls (which obviously will bounce) into a deeper container such as a garbage can at center court. This is an easy and cheap fundraiser that is wide open to your creativity.Source: Jeff Y.
