Aaron Rodgers Fundraiser For Shooting Victims

I think its great that these sports figures are giving back to the community after something horrific like this.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will hold a fundraiser for the victims of the Brookfield salon shooting and their families.

Rodgers and Braun own the 8-12 restaurant in Brookfield. Rodgers says the restaurant ties them to the community, so they’re looking for a way to help out.

WTMJ reports plans for the fundraiser are still being finalized by Rodgers’ and Braun’s restaurant partner, Omar Shaikh. They say 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the victims and their families.

Three employees of the Azana Salon & Spa were killed Sunday in a shooting that wounded four other women. Police say the gunman took his own life at the spa.

Most Popular Fundraising Event Idea

I have to say that the most popular new fundraising event idea in 2012 has been the Hunger Games fundraiser. I don’t know if its just the extreme popularity of the books and the movie, but I’m getting more questions about how to do this type of event than all the other ones combined. Using cheap cloth table runners for those types of events are perfect when they’re themed like those at Hunger Games.

Hunger Games fundraiser

It’s probably because, at its core, a Hunger Games style event is extremely adaptable to all the fundraising variables such as group size, age of participants, amount of funds needed, available space and number of volunteers.

According to this fundraising management consultant, schools are doing this one with an academic component. Teens love it because they can identify with the characters and make their own Hunger Games outfits. Adults enjoy it because its new and different. Organizers see a Hunger Games competition as easy to promote and get sponsorships from local businesses.

And most importantly, its a huge draw for the event itself because everyone gets to passionately root 0n their favorites in all the different phases of the competition.

Big crowds + fun events = Successful fundraiser!

To see for yourself how successful this could be for your group, read the full article on FundraiserHelp.com along with my tips on how to get publicity and all the different ways to monetize your event.

If you are looking for something new and different for your next fundraising event, then I’d definitely recommend doing a Hunger Games fundraiser.

Cookie Dough Fundraiser

A cookie dough fundraiser is a great way for schools and youth sports groups to raise funds. You’ll find selling cookie dough an easy fundraiser because it’s a product that families know they can use, kids love it, and the price points make for excellent profits.

Cookie Dough fundraiser

A cookie dough fundraiser is an order taker with delivery a few weeks later. Most times, the product is sold in frozen form in tubs or pre-sliced frozen cookies, so you’ll need to coordinate deliveries with a set delivery day.

The best way to maximize your cookie dough sales is to expand beyond the usual circle of potentail buyers – family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. That means selling to the general public from sales tables at high-traffic locations such as grocery stores, drug stores, etc.

Use large banners and flyers for your cookie dough fundraiser featuring your group name, contact information, and clearly state why you are raising funds. Having social proof of how the funds raised will be used helps get prospective buyers over the decision hump, as do pre-baked sample cookies.

A second profit tip is to offer an alternate product to offer those who say no and those who say yes. The most attractive, high-profit offering is a two-for-one pizza card that costs $2 and retails for $10.

That way, you can make a sale to those who don’t want cookie dough or are concerned about delayed delivery. You can also make a possible second sale to those already buying.

Maximize your profits by maximizing your revenue at each sales opportunity. Increase the number of sales opportunities and your fundraising will wildly exceed expectations.

And that’s it for these quick tips. For more detailed advice, read my full article on how to maximize your cookie dough fundraiser profits.

Florida Gators Fundraising Scandal

Will the Florida Gators fundraising scandal bring NCAA sanctions? It’s anybody’s guess how far the scandal will spread and what effect it will have on the defending national champion Florida Gators football team.

The scandal erupted when the University of Florida’s new “Gateway of Champions” fundraising campaign offered Gator boosters unprecedented opportunities to both support and enjoy the school’s powerhouse football program. For a mere $5 million dollars, you can join the team for breakfast and ride the bus with them to a game.

Even worse, the Florida Gator’s fundraising scandal has caught up returning star quarterback Tim Teboe in it’s nefarious web. Boosters were asked to cough up $25,000 for the so-called “Very Nice Gator Experience” which included a chance at a Gator souvenir that all true Gator fans covet, a choice sampling of Tim Teboe’s toenail clippings.

Other’s caught up in the scandal investigation at the University of Florida include Coach Urban Meyer’s next door neighbor, who not only charges $10,000 to allow visitors to sit on his deck and gawk at the coach’s family, but also offers brown bags stuffed with choice morsels from Urban Meyer’s dog’s droppings.

With millions of dollars flowing in, the cash transactions triggered a federal investigation that cleared the money as not being counterfeit, but no one knows how to stop the cash flow itself. Currently, students are being paid to launder the cash in residential dorm laundry facilities before returning the scandal funds to Florida Gator fundraisers.
