A company specializing in lingerie, sleepwear and bedroom novelty items, hosted a lingerie show in Amherst, Massachusetts to benefit the University of Massachusetts Everywoman’s Center. The 45-minute lingerie show, which was open to both men and women, was modeled by three UMass Sigma Kappa sorority sisters. Attendees were then invited to shop for lingerie or book their own lingerie parties. A total of 10 percent of the night’s total retail sales went to the EveryWoman’s Center. If someone signed up to have their own party at the event, the company donated an additional five percent of the sales from that party to the Center.
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
