    Default Fundraising benefit ideas....

    For a terminally ill little girl at my school Since the trial drugs she needs are $50,000 for 6 months worth of pills, our school would like to hold a benefit night for her and her family. Any ideas welcome. Thanks.

    Trivia night. Hopefully the school would lend you their hall rent free. Can ask local businesses for donations of prizes...or just keep it small like a bag of Mars Bars and the satisfaction of winning, etc. People bring their own food/drink for their own table - so no catering. Depends what your school community is like and how big they are as to how well this would work.

    ask for free advertising in your local community newspaper/ tv/ every media available. often people will just donate, businesses might offer a voucher or some larger item to raffle. contact your local RSL, I have found them fantastic for supporting the community. pie drives/ lamington drives/ they take a lot of effort and a lot of hands to work,, a big charity event like a bush dance, or concert night, is a big effort, but you see the result immediately. Also. the local member of parliament, they have some emergency funds that might be available. hugs, I hope you have a good result. marie
