    What are some fundraisers you all have done w/your FRG?

    -We designed a command t-shirt and sold them to the family members
    -Made a float for the 4th of July parade to win $100
    -Bakes sales
    -Car washes
    -Easter Egg sales(fills eggs with candy and in each egg was a number for a prize. They could win the CO's parking spot, 48 hour leave chit etc.)
    -Spaghetti dinners at the command during working hours
    -We also took in donations from our families and had garage sales to help raise money

    Thats all I can think of right now

    Dear GOD, I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday. That was cool!

    We used Current Fundraising. At www.currentfun.com anyone can shop and then at checkout they designate what group the proceeds go to. The group has to register with Current, but after that the only "work" we did was put the word out in the newsletter and at meetings. Even extended family can support the cause! Current sends a dividend check out to the designated fundraising person on a quarterly basis. It was really easy money!!

    We have done donut sales in front of the pier and made $300 in 45 minutes of doing it. We are currently waiting on our cookbook to be finished to sell. We sell our inventory (gators and car magnets) at anything and everything we can. We made over $500 on the family cruise doing this. Bake sales on the ship. Flower sales for Valentines Day. Those are a few we have done.

    We do chili sales. It's a GREAT fundraiser, esp. if you get 5 people to donate a crock pot of chili. We made 300 bucks in a 2 hr period of doing this and had many requests to do it again.
