What are some good ideas for fundraising?

My sister has non Hodgkin Lymphoma and we just put on a very successful benefit breakfast for her on Sunday. But eventually down the road I'd like to do another fundraiser for her (not as extravagant as a benefit). Any ideas?

  • I'd call local restraunts and find one that is willing to split profits with you. That way you get money for her treatments and help out a local business.
