Depends on what you are doing the fundraising for and how big or small the event is to be.
Some restaurants around here will hold fundraising nights where a certain percentage of sales during specific hours go to your organization. All you need to do is advertise the event.
Raffles are good too, especially if you do something popular. A basket of a local sport team's products is often popular, or a basket of garden supplies or new baby gifts, etc....whatever matches your target population. Hunting is a popular past time in my area, so gun raffles are popular here.
Then there are walks, car washes, candy sales, bake sales, flea markets, magazine sales, wrapping paper/gifts sales and flower sales. You can also do fundraisers through home parties like Avon, Discovery Toys, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Arbonne, Usborne Books, etc. Craft fairs or scrapbooking fundraisers are fun, too.
