It's going to be summer baseball season again soon.......

for a fund raiser
I want to purchase a large stainless steel propane BAR-B-Q grill from Sam's Club..... last year was $618.00

and sell tickets for the grill all through the season...

something like 300 tickets @ $20.00 a piece or something more reasonable.
I feel a selling point is that the person would only be against 300 other people iinsterad of an unlimited amount.

plan to set the grill on a trailer to set at the gates of home & away games.

my main concern is making tickets that'll not be easily reproduced


I need some ideas here.
I know it needs to be worded as a donation, instead of a raffle.

20.00 might be alittle to much for 1 ticket. However, I am not sure how much exposure/tickets you could sell. How many people come to those games?

I was thinking $20.00 was a little high also.... that was another officer's recommendation.

don't know a real number of people that come, but on a regular T-Ball night, we clear $300.00 from the concession stand for two 1 hour games.
4 t-ball teams (4-6 year olds) 1 hour time limit
2 coach pitch teams (7-8 year olds) 1 hour time limit
2 peewee teams (9-10 year olds) 5 innings
1 midget team (11-12 year olds) 5 innings
1 preps team (13-14 year olds) unlimited

on our annual fundraiser night (usually Bar-B-Q dinner) we clear $3000.00 and then we're matched by a local civic group (name withheld)

We do similar thing at our soccer club for donated items at our big tournament. Just sell tickets (like you get when you enter events) with the numbers on them donor gets one you keep one to put in a draw bucket. Someone drives around in a golf cart selling tickets.You might get it donated, or at least at their price or worst case use you tax id and pay no taxes.

50/50 raffle is something that can be done weekly as a fund raiser. People can buy tickets for typically $1 each. (most people buy multiples) At the end of the day, you pull a ticket out of a hat and the winner get's 50% of the proceeds and the charity gets the other 50%. Works well and pretty easy to sell tickets as most people should have no problem in betting a few bucks each week at the games.
