Tips for raising the cash to foot your reunion bill.
"Paying for your reunion may be among your most creative
challenges," says Edith Wagner, editor of Reunions Magazine
Fund-raising goals, Wagner explains, can defray reunion costs, provide
money for members to attend the reunion or raise scholarship money for
young family members. "Raising money can be as much or as little fun as
you want to make it, but it can also be a drag," Wagner adds. "It's up
to the family to make it fun and to generate enthusiasm. When done
well, fund raisers can be both entertaining and profitable; the best
ones contribute to the fun and enjoyment of the reunion." Here are some
successful fund-raising tips Reunions Magazine
collected from its
readers over the years:
? Hold a bake or craft sale.
? Collect pledges for a bike race or bowl-a-thon.
