Everybody is familiar with the parlor game “Charades”, but did you ever consider making it a fundraising event? The Gale Recovery Center in New Jersey did. They invited teams of five, at $100 per team, to participate. Each team was given 10 minutes to guess as many answers as they could. Categories included movies, books and songs. The 1st, 2nd & 3rd place teams were given prizes donated by local business, such as a pizza party at a local Italian restaurant and other prizes easily shared among five people. It’s an easy fundraiser to organize, no special equipment is required, and everyone has a great time for a good cause. This event can easily be paired with other fundraisers, such as a silent auction, a casual dinner event or a 50/50 raffle, just to name a few.
