I work with the youth group in our church to plan all kinds of fundraising events. If someone is in need, we take it upon ourselves to try to raise the money that the family may need to recover from whatever they are going through. We have found that the key to a successful fundraiser is to plan the entertainment carefully. Sometimes, we hire bands to come and play other times, we hire puppeteers to perform. We try to mix up the entertainment to give those who attend and donate to the cause something fun to enjoy while they spend their time with us.
