Fundraising Ideas for a Relay for Life Team

I am looking for some simple, inexpensive fundraising ideas for our Relay for Life team. Something to raise money before hand and at our tent the night of the relay.

Our JC group works with other relay groups to double up on fundraisers for before the relay. We will be doing the "BBQ" for another groups Hold 'em Poker Tourney. The hall is donated by the local Elks Lodge.

I think also, a kids craft night might go over well. is a great place to buy inexpensive craft items and then your group could charge a flat fee for kids to come make something (will need to buy some glue too) and have some free games to play, maybe get a grocery to donate cookies and punch? Wouldn't be a very lucrative project, but would get the kids in your community going. It could double as a "Day Away" three hour drop off for busy parents. Be sure to have them sign a responsibility waiver for accident prone kids. The city may have something to say about whether or not this is an ok project too.

Also, it's still good and cold out, try a chilli soup cook off. Set up in a plaza or downtown shopping area, and charge $5.00 to taste to vote.

What about selling cold drinks afterwords? The hot and thirsty runners will buy heaps!
