Put your chef's hat on
Are you the culinary whiz in your group? Do you love to feed the masses? Morning teas, BBQs, luncheons and dinner parties are popular ways to show off your skills while also raising money for a good cause. Consider asking your guests to donate what they think the meal was worth, or what they would have spent at a cafe or restaurant.
To raise more, you could even make your recipes into a cookbook to sell. Or you can have party games and charge a donation to enter – just be sure to have some prizes for the winners.

Be an entertainer
Show your friends a good time and raise funds for a good cause. Keep it low key with a movie or game night, or kick it up a notch and book a venue for a dinner dance, trivia night, fashion show or bingo competition. The choice is yours.
You could charge for entry tickets or get your hands on prizes to raffle off throughout the night.

Tracy’s Yellow Ribbon Ball
Tracy was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer at just 32 years of age. Just a few months later, she had her right leg amputated.
“Drastic surgery was the most effective option in my situation but I hope that with enough funding and research, others won’t need to take the same action, let alone face a sarcoma diagnosis.”
Tracy took action and so began the Yellow Ribbon Ball.
Tracy held her Yellow Ribbon Ball in September and in just one event, she raised more than $13,400 to help people affected by cancer.
