Our local senior center raises money every year by selling calendars. They raise the money to pay for special outings for the seniors that reside there.
I wanted to get involved and help them raise as much money as possible.
I had the idea to sell their calendars at our local ribs cook-off. In our town this is a major event. People come from all over the U.S. to attend. But getting a booth at the cook-off is costly. I knew a local restaurant owner that has a booth at the cook-off every year and I asked him if he would allow me to sell the calendars for the senior center if I did all of the work. He agreed.
It was a huge success! We sold 1,000 calendars at $15 each. So we raised $15000 for the senior center.
