A recent Multiple Sclerosis fundraising event featured a raffle entitled “It’s a girl thing”. The winner received a ‘Pamper Me’ packet for a day of relaxation and pampering. All it items were donated by local merchants. Tickets were sold for $1 each .. all of which was profit and with minimal effort! Their packet included a body massage, tanning pass, haircut & style, manicure, department store gift certificate, dinner for two and two movie passes. Be creative and tailor your fundraising packet to fit your organization and supporters! Prepare a nice certificate or letter for the winner. Make sure you publicize the donations from the local merchants AND be sure to send them a personal thank you!Source: Chris M.
